Then he goes way beyond most beginner titles, exploring dynamic action poses, special effects, light and shading, perspective, popular manga types such as animals, anthros, and shoujo and shounen characters. By the end of this big book, the new artist is ready to draw dramatic story sequences full of movement and life.

Manga for the Beginner

User Review  - stormy1q -

This book starts off as giving easy instructions on how to draw manga. However it turns all to quickly into a book for moderate to advanced drawers. It did say for the Beginner in the title. That is what one would expect throughout the book. However that was not the case. Read full review
