  • Not for beginners
    From Amazon

    This book is good. it gives you a complete model sheet, something that i dont see in other books. it is not for beginners though, it doesnt teach you how to draw a character from head to toe.

  • The Name Says It All!!
    From Amazon

    Well my title says it all as well! This book is exactly what most people need to start drawing manga right away. Starting with the most basic of all things, character design! The book consists of a lot of different tips and guidance on how to draw characters. starting from the front view, the profile to the 3/4 views of the characters face,body and poses. It also has the basic tips and instructions on drawing weapons and clothes. Just when you thought you are done by mastering those basics, the book teaches something more in a form of drawing animals, anthropods, shading ,colouring and drawing backgrounds! The tips on drawing from perspective is in fact, in my opinion, a very useful tip for any artist in particular. Overall, the book has everything the beginner needs to learn to start drawing right away! but, advanced or even intermediate artists may find this book a bit lacking, but why buy a book for beginners when you are higher in skill level in the first place?

  • It's..well
    From Amazon

    This is not what i would really call a start drawing right away book it's hard to understand even for my friend that knows how to draw magna,anime & chibi.was not what i was excepting cuz i not only bought this for myself but bought it for my "adopted" nephew in england who is 10/11..would not have bought it if i would have seen it first hand..bit sad..

  • Ecstatic grandchildren & grandmother
    From Amazon

    i shop Amazon for my granddchildren who live 300 miles away and who are now 13, 10 & 6. their mother creates a "wish list" on Amazon for each child and that's how i learned of this wonderful service for grannies who don't see their precious ones daily or weekly. Phoebe was truly ecstatic with all of the Manga products i bought, as well as Henry's pleasure & delight with the Xtrasaurus (or whatever those things are called), and my 13 year old Phoebe was THRILLED as only a 13 year old girl can be with the Stylus Mouse Pad. of course, i am clueless about all these items, but the point is the children were happy, entertained, and joyous the several days we were together. thank you Amazon. (i tell all my friends with out-of-town grandchilren about this service.) must say, we live in Texas, 50 miles South of Austin, Texas, and my husband is a Texas ex, so "HOOK 'EM HORNS!", stem the Crimson Tide and win another Crystal Trophy!! Tonight is the night! Rose Bowl will rock. linda blevins

  • Manga for the Beginner: Everything You Need to Start Drawing Right Away!
    From Amazon

    This book really did get me started drawing manga. The directions are easy to follow with good tips for drawing. The only part I didn't understand was the vanishing points section but I pretty much got everything else. One part I wish it would've gone over was the wrinkles in clothes. Although the book was pretty good, I'm working on realistic drawings but for anyone who wants to draw manga, this is really the right book to start off at.
