Reviews - What do customers think about How To Draw Manga Volume 34: Costume Encyclopedia Volume 2 (How to Draw Manga)?
I passed but its probably decent.? Jun 10, 2007
I almost bought the book until i looked in it. It's basically drawing girls in skimpy sexy clothes. If You like that kind of thing then shovel out the 20 bucks. I'd recommend buying it here because its cheaper! I think if you want to find lingerie you could try using Victoria secret? I don't exactly get why theres a entire book for this one thing. it would be useful if you want to draw a Fan service-heavy manga maybe a Romance manga too but i;m not sure. If i have extra money i might consider it...
i think it'd be nice to haver more guy sleepwear in it?
Helpful in ways, depending on the person May 30, 2007
In this series of HTDM costume encyclopedia, Hayashi and morimoto team up once again to show you some different apparel for your characters. In the first couple of pages they give examples of fantasy wear, which they created through the use of unmentionables (bra, panties, corsets, etc...)Now, this book is pretty good when it comes down to underwear and all, but what can one truly gain form buying this book? Well for starters, if you are having trouble with drawing certain bra's and panties, or even pajama's(which is in here as well, but not many examples of it)can benefit you pretty well; then again, that is just about it. I guess alot of people won't find it helpful to them if they are not drawing a manga that's along the lines of golden boy, La blue girl, ikkitousen, and other various anime's along those lines of panty shots and etc. Another good thing that I noticed from this book is that they give examples of undergarment throught the centuries from different ethnicities, the down fall is they don't show alot of it, it's just examples. All in all, I would recommend this book for those who would like to learn how to draw under garments or for those who need these essentials for their manga. It all depends if you find this book helpful or not. I will make a recommendation though. If guys are looking for clothes that people wore through out the centuries from different ethinicities, then you are looking for HTDM Bishoujo around the world. They not only show you different races, but also show you what clothes they wore.On helpfulness I rate this book a 3 for those who can't really benefit from this book, and I rate it a 4 for my personal use.
Fun to draw . . . and look at too! Apr 20, 2007
This is a fun `How to Draw Manga - Intimate Apparel' book that I bought recently for my husband as a gift.
As its title implies, this is literally an encyclopedia of (illustrated) intimate apparel - which includes a wide variety of brassieres, panties, slips, tops, bottoms, stockings, garter belts, bustiers, camisoles, and other sexy sleepwear.
Most of the book is merely a presentation of the various garments. The real instruction doesn't start until the last section, "Drawing Intimates."
The sexiest tutorials are definitely the "Drawing Brassieres . ." and "Drawing Panties from Various Angles" - which include both tempting look-down and look-up (upskirt) views!
This section also has some fun trivia. Hey, did you know that when rendering women's undergarments - that panties should always be drawn with two lower seams (for the cotton panel) - while bikini bottoms should only have one? (After a quick check of my own undies - I found this to be generally true.) Bikinis should also be drawn as being made from a thicker fabric!
As a watch out, the sexiest - and only color picture - is the one on the cover!
For those who illustrate for a living, like cartoonist or fashion designers - this `How to Draw Manga - Intimate Apparel' can be an invaluable reference.
For the rest of us, this is also light entertainment for anyone (girl or guy) who enjoys viewing the feminine form. XOXOX
Great reference for artists, not for hentai. Jan 13, 2007
If you are an artist with serious problems of Girls reference, this is the best book you will find, also the other 2 encyclopedias, I own the 3 of them and believe me this are the best reference for drawingk, sculpting and others stuffs, just get it while its hot... cause it will be hot forever!
Not really needed. Jun 2, 2005
Ok all of us out there have a pretty good idea on how underwear should look and there's only so many different ways to draw them. I found the book to be a little dissapointing and seems repetative on the same subjects. What I did like the most was the fashion section through the ages starting with Ancient Egypt through to today. Though don't get too excited this section is 1/8 of the book and goes by quick. As for the rest, well I'd skip this one especially if you have a good imagination, you can come up with your own ideas as to how seductive or innocent your character's outfits should be.
