Book Description

Got manga? Christopher Hart’s got manga, and he wants to share it with all his millions of readers—especially the beginners. With Manga for the Beginner, anyone who can hold a pencil can start drawing great manga characters right away. Using his signature step-by-step style, Hart shows how to draw the basic manga head and body, eyes, bodies, fashion, and more. Then he goes way beyond most beginner titles, exploring dynamic action poses, special effects, light and shading, perspective, popular manga types such as animals, anthros, and shoujo and shounen characters. By the end of this big book, the new artist is ready to draw dramatic story sequences full of movement and life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daughter loves it... 30 Dec. 2010
Format:Paperback
I have an 8 year old daughter who loves drawing. She had started to draw Manga style characters due to her love of this kind of animation on tv. I bought her this book for Christmas and she adores it. She started using it straight away and has done some pretty good drawings from it, even making some things up herself.

There is a lot more in the book than I thought when I purchased it, it really is brilliant, a lot of different characters and styles, with pictures and text to help improve as they go along.

I will be buying her some more books over time, but this was great as a starting point and she can't put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fundamentally brilliant. 4 Aug. 2011
By LV
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although a little old-fashioned, this book provides a great solid foundation in drawing. Chris Hart's instructions are easy to understand and produce good results, with very useful notes throughout on how to give your drawings a professional and realistic edge. Many subjects and styles are covered, so a fantastic guide for anyone who wants a reference for all kinds of manga drawing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good around but missing a few extras. 22 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
All in all it is a very good beginners book, but I found that to find a COMPLETE overview I had to
Look at other books to find everything I needed, though I would recommend it for a first manga book

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good! 30 Aug. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book along with another manga book by Christopher Hart as I am a very keen manga artist.
When I had a quick flick through, I thought "This looks really easy," but when I had a go, I found it very hard. The faces are fairly easy to draw, but as you get further into the book it gradually gets harder.
This book came within three working days after I placed the order.
This book is probably better for someone more advanced than a beginner.
I would strongly recommend this book for an advanced manga artist.

Overall, this book is great for an advanced manga artist!
