Great for drawing manga Aug 24, 2007
This is a great book for learning how to draw manga girls. Not the best for ideas on actual characters or outfits, this book goes more into HOW stuff works and lays over, and how the body itself is formed, which is tremendously helpful anyway. I recommend it to fans of manga and anime.
Love it a lot! Jul 11, 2007
It's not one of my top favorite How to Draw Books I have, but I still love it quite a bit. It helps to get your characters down in the way you want to and it also has things that many other books like this don't. Next to my favorite "Occult and Horror" and "Girls Life Illustration File" it's one of the best out there.
its very pretty but... Apr 17, 2007
i do think its pretty, cute, and funny (like the cat girl pouncing on a little mouse that looks like jerry!) but there is some pictures of naked girls, ones wearing reveling clothes, some are fully dressed but have [...]. so be sure not to the book to little kids. but there are gorgeous ones,like mermaids. i hope it will inspire its readers ;)!
This is a great book... Mar 9, 2006
If you would like to learn how to draw women taking showers, stripping down to their panties, languishing in bed naked, prancing about in negligee or serving cocktails in a bunny costume. Otherwise, I would suggest another book.
Great for artists with some training already May 25, 2005
I agree with many of the others that this is not a beginner's "how to" book, but it has a lot of great examples to use if you are interested in improving Manga drawing technique. There is a wealth of examples in the book, to include "chibi" figures- "squashed", childlike figures. Again, the drawback is that there is very little step-by-step done, so an absolute beginner who has no experience with proportions and form may not like this book as much as I did.
