Book Description

Everything you need to become a manga artist, with step-by-step instructions, exercises, and tips and tricks and feature spreads from other artists.

Learn everything you need to become a manga artist, with step-by-step instructions, exercises to develop your skills, and tips and tricks.

With the interest in manga-style art now stronger than ever its influence can be seen in films such as Spirited Away and My Neighbour Totoro by Studio Ghibli, amongst other movies this is the perfect book to slipstream into manga drawing. Packed full of step-by-step sequences for face, body, and poses, you too can draw in the manga-art style.

Learn how to draw figures in the characteristic style of your favourite characters by building a portfolio of drawings. At the end of each chapter is a series of practice exercises where you’re encouraged to trace or freehand draw subjects from earlier on. You’ll end up with a portfolio of sketches charting your artistic development. There is also an inspirational artists-in-residence section, where various artists share their manga-art secrets and showcase their own art.

Amazon Customer Review

Great tips and secrets for the experienced artists, if you are serious about improving, I would buy it. 

I bought this book because it advertised secrets and tips. I found it not to be the generic 'how to draw manga for beginners', but that's why I really like it. Simple secrets and tips for those who are already experienced in manga art. I've found it very helpful and simple to work with. I'm looking forward to improving my work by using some of the secrets.
