Reviews - What do customers think about More How To Draw Manga Volume 2: Penning Characters (More How to Draw Manga)?

Didn't meet my full expectations but I'm not dissatisfied  Jun 5, 2008
Another good edition to the HTDM series or the MORE collection.

I got a good read out of this book today. The inking techniques provided are quite good.

I was expecting the entire book to be more focused on actual pen techniques however. The book skips around after the first couple pages or so regarding how to ink to make the most of creating that "manga-esque" effect.

I'd say only about a quarter of the book is actually focused on the inking techniques. The rest therein lies in characterization and all the various expressions seen in manga. All very useful information. And as expected of an HTDM title, the illustrations provided are wonderful.

Not a bad book at all for someone wanting to understand the various inking techniques used in manga.
Real nice refrence book  Jan 26, 2006
This is a pretty decent refrence book to penning and like all How to draw manga books they also show you some basic drawing ( i dont understand why they do this since they already have a MHTDM volume for it ). What I loved about THIS MHTDM volume was the drawing style as well as the angles, UNLIKE the first volume the art style is more current and not 80s feel like the first one. Provides info on what type of pens and pencils should be used when penning as well as shading info.
fantabulous - not just for inking!  Jun 17, 2005
this book is just as excellent as the reviewer before me stated. however, there are also some other reasons to get this book. even though i plan to CG my sketches, i bought this books anyways. why, you ask? is has a surprisingly large selection of different body and head poses, especially downward and upward angles (which i find difficult). and many of the techniques shown can easily be adapted to digital inking as well (i.e. modulating lines, tapering, etc.) by all means, give this book serious consideration.
Much better than I expected  Dec 5, 2004
I've been drawing for about 15 years, 10 of them SERIOUSLY, I mean, with REAL dedication and study. 9 years ago, I discovered my love manga-style, and wanted to learn more. And every time I got stuck on the same point: I don't know how to ink. I have about seven books of the HTDM series now, and when I found out this one, I wanted to take the risk of ordering something that has no review. And I found the following:

-Yes, IT DOES TEACH YOU HOW TO INK, with description and examples of materials, techniques and all the stuff.

-It gives you good advice on texturing and shading, even to express the character's personality through inking. And to make your drawings look professional.

-It covers a lot of manga related subjects, from the inking point of view, like the use of special "codes" (sweat drops, X's and the kind).

Yup, it's not for the rookie artist, but you just need to know this: if you already do a good work with pencils, now you won't ruin it anymore on the ink process.

Summing up: buy it. You wont regret it (well, unless you're a skilled inker, and even then you might get some usefull advice).
