Product Description

Product Description

Learn the Tricks of the Trade for Drawing Irresistibly Cute Manga-Style Animals and Chibis! The world of manga is filled with strange creatures and adorable sidekicks. Just about every manga hero and heroine has an animal mascot, and all the most popular ones have a cute "chibi" form. This book teaches aspiring manga artists how to create the funny critters that populate girls' manga and the more gritty, gothic creatures found in boys' manga.  It starts with the basics of creating manga-style characters—everything from drawing heads and faces to eyes and expressions, to creating incredibly cute chibis. Part two features a valuable reference section on the mythological and real animals that have shaped Japanese artwork and stories. The final section has step-by-step demonstrations on using computer programs such as Photoshop and Corel Painter to create manga art and comics. So whether you're just starting out and want to draw a cute, simple mascot, or would like to try something more complex like an Asian dragon, or are ready to create your own otherworldly adventure, this book has something for you no matter what your skill level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for beginners and kids 29 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
I bought three of these books, one for a teenager who is hoping to get into graphic design and one each for two 11 year olds who love doodling. This book is a great beginner's guide as it takes you through the basics but includes some more detailed designs as well as a guide to creating mange drawings on your computer. It's so straightforward even I've managed to draw a Chibi version of my kid and my dog, and I'm completely hamfisted.

I've seen a couple of good manga/animation books by Christopher Hart for those who want more, but for the money this is brilliant value.
