Reviews - What do customers think about Draw your Own Manga: Beyond the Basics (Draw Your Own Manga)?

Great for experts but....  Nov 16, 2006
Interesting, I suppose. But to be honest, I didn't feel that I, as a beginner, got much out of it. It gave reference material, but not many drawing tips. It gave examples, which was nessacary, but all and all, unless your nearly an expert, I wouldn't buy it. Maybe pick it up in the libary like I did???
