Reviews - What do customers think about How To Draw Manga: Maids & Miko?
I enjoyed the book Nov 29, 2006
I actually enjoyed the book. It gives you an idea on the ruffles and how the clothing drapes the body. Really helpful if you are creating a character with frilly clothing. This book also has some poses that will be very helpful if you get stuck on a certain pose. It has posing in chairs with the legs crossed (one that I say can be very difficult!), reclining,kneeling on one leg, bowing, and so on. If you are looking to draw characters from the feudal era (like inuyasha) or a shrine maiden/ or maid, then this is definately a book for you. It isn't for beginners though, I think it may be more for those along the levels of intermediate and above. For those who are weary of nudity, then this is also a book for you, It doesn't contain any nudity at all.

This book is especially good for those looking to improve their knowledge of how fabric hangs on the body, and/or if one wants to understand how traditional miko outfits actually work. Not just for maid outfits, but for any girl character who may wear a frilly dress, it is very helpful.. with views from all directions...and detailed information on areas that may be the most difficult, such as ruffles, sleeves, back views, etc. It's not for beginners, but it's a great addition to any "How To Draw Manga" collection. I loved it!
