Item description for More How To Draw Manga Volume 1: The Basics Of Character Drawing (Manga Technique) by Go Office...

The foundation to drawing a character is the penciled under-drawing. An under-drawing that has somehow gone astray, once penned, ultimately results in artwork that just will not pull together or lacks balance. This volume explains in thorough detail how to handle the pencil, before the pen ever touches the drawing. Using actual examples of how a well or poorly penciled under-drawing can affect the final work, this book passes along many helpful pointers. Use this book to learn the absolute basics of penciled artwork, manga-style!

Reviews - What do customers think about More How To Draw Manga Volume 1: The Basics Of Character Drawing (Manga Technique)?

Back to Basics  Jun 25, 2008
Three factors have contributed to the delay of my review for this book: laziness, college, and actually putting tips from the book to the test. After finally getting down to rereading the first volume of the "More How to . . ." series, I can honestly say that I'm getting `more' than I bargained for.

The book itself kicks things off by stressing the need to be good with a pencil before drawing with a pen. From there you learn to draw both male and female manga characters from top to bottom. This book isn't an all-in-one, however; you won't see pointers on facial expressions, full-blown anatomy, or drawing designer clothes. But you do learn about drawing faces, basic human figures and even hair, as well as making your characters physically distinct from each other.

The book also explores proportioning characters correctly with a special "head ratio" measuring method that covers several pages. From there you learn about creating cute super-deformed characters, the first steps to drawing characters, and avoiding common errors in creating manga. When it boils down to it, grabbing Vol. 1 of "More How to . . ." is the logical first step to becoming a manga artist.

While this book is unrated, it contains no offensive content.
Good manga drawing book  Feb 29, 2008
I foun this book to be very helpful in all the basics in drawing a character. The visual aids help in showing what looks right and what doesn't. It also gave me more ideas to put in my own manga from haistyles to body shapes.
Basics  Oct 31, 2007
I'm still working through the book but it has given me a new way of looking at how to draw things. I seems to be able to follow along pretty well. I have enjoyed it.
A good introduction to the basics of Manga art style !   Aug 15, 2007
I Got my copy of this book thru this site,And was really disapointed because they kept delaying the shipping date and had to wait over 2 weeks until it actually got shipped. However the book it-self offers quite alot of potential for learning to design and draw your own Manga charecters it covers many topics on both the realistic and the manga style such as the design of the eyes/Nose/Mouth , Also it was very helpful when it came to Head drawing from all angles in addition to that it also covers drawing the human figure . The only reason why i gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 is because all the charecters in the book look like from some 80's anime . And i am not that much into that style i love Yoshiyuki Sadamoto's style more it's modern and realistic .
This book is awesome!  Mar 17, 2007
This book has really helped me figure out how to draw manga step-by-step. I got it for my birthday and I'm always using it. It's got some really great stuff in it, so I would recommend it to anyone who has *some* experience.
