Manga Art Secrets : The Definitive Guide to Drawing Awesome Artwork in the Manga Style Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


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.
