Perfect for ALL levels!
on 1 August 2012
I have gotten many "how to draw manga" books in the past and this is by far the best one of them all. Let me tell you why!
Most how to draw books have many pages that the author is just waffling taking about all the technical stuff (which is sometimes good but most people would like to get along with drawing!) And every single page of this book is useful and it is just ram packed with stuff look amazing! Colored pages, step by step guides for beginners and reference pages for the more advanced levels. Let me give you an example...
Theres a section of the book that is titled "101 Manga Eyes"... Its self explanetory! Mark Crilley has fit onto four pages 101 diverse manga eyes including cartoony manga and realistic manga with annotations
Mark Crilley is very aware that there is more then one style of manga, so he tries to fit in different styles into the book so that everyone can benefit from this
I recommend this book to BEGINNERS, ADEPT and ADVANCED levels... EVERYONE will benefit from this... a MUST buy!
If you don't know who Mark Crilley is and how great he is at teaching Manga, YouTube him! He's VERY popular and has written novels such as Brody's Ghost, Akiko and Mikki Falls.
