4.0 out of 5 stars A Few minor Flaws, However its Great!, 6 Mar. 2013

This review is from: Mastering Manga with Mark Crilley: 30 Drawing Lessons from the Creator of Akiko (Paperback)
I Bought this book about 1 -2 weeks ago and i was really impressed with the time in which amazon delivered it to me, Not only was it within the promised 4 days it came a day earlier than predicted!
The book itself, it has helped me learn the basics of illustrating manga art, as a novice myself, before purchasing this book i struggled with the structuring of faces and body shapes, however after following the guidelines given to me from Mastering Manga i am able to now create to my hearts content. Mark Crilley (Author/ Illustrator of Mastering Manga) gives you a very in depth outlook on where to place certain lines and also gives to you a variety of Hairstyles, Emotions, Hand Positions and Foot Positions to use for your very own Manga Character. However as great as this book is there are certain things i think that he forgets to point out for novices such as myself that are rather important. Such as when it comes to structuring the face he has left out how to draw the chin of the character, i personally find this one of the most challenging things when creating manga characters and im pretty sure im not the only one, Also he doesn't have a section for noses, it may be small, but as a amateur i would like to see a variety so i can input them into my charecters.

Overall im very pleased with my purchase and would recommend this to anybody who is interested in creating manga art who is new to it as i feel that it has increased my skills dramatically.
