Item description for Manga Mania: Shoujo Sketchbook (Manga Mania) by Christopher Hart...
Of all the forms of manga, shoujo is the one directed almost entirely at girls. Many—though by no means all—of these stories focus on romance, have flowing, very pretty art, and highlight characters with youthful charm and huge, glistening eyes. So this sketchbook will attract a huge female audience eager to find out how to draw key elements of the style. They'll quickly master such features as a “pretty girl” head, a Shoujo boy figure, beautiful Shoujo eyes, the most popular manga hairstyles, and stylish outfits. Finally, kids will learn how to create Magical Girl characters complete with monster mascots.

Reviews - What do customers think about Manga Mania: Shoujo Sketchbook (Manga Mania)?
Could be so much more Apr 5, 2008
I looked at this in the bookstore. It only has a few pages of how to draw scenes and the rest is blank paper. I think its 3 pages of how to draw a girl, and 2 pages for a boy. While the art and directions were nice, it could have been so much more. Like the directions, then a few empty pages, then go on to the next character to draw(and have different angles, poses, etc).
It is more of a sketchbook than anything(which would explain the title, but when I actually saw it I was thinking it would be more like the How to draw manga sketch style things) Like How To Draw Manga: Sketching Manga Style Volume 1: Sketching As Composition Planning (How to Draw Manga) (Paperback).
shoujo sketchbook Nov 1, 2007
Quality paper, although not that big. The tutorial by Chris Hart is, as always, superb. A nice sketchbook for getting down quickies. Small enough to carry in a purse.
