The monster book of manga,
This review is from: The Monster Book of Manga (Paperback)
I found this book great for poses and step by step instruction, it also provides great tips about lighting and thing relevant to each character. I personally would probably not make use of the rather extensive selection of Monsters - fantasy and science fiction, however I still felt that this was a great buy - the section on girls at the front was great for improving the way I draw, and there is a fantastic section on Drawing Manga digitally at the back which I didn't even know about when purchasing the book, but is extremely useful - digital art is hard! The artist has an elegant line and a refreshingly cartoony style in comparison to "How to draw manga" books - but it is still too detailed to copy exactly in pencil. The tips are useful for development of original characters. It is great for the beginer manga artist as the step by step images are easy to copy and learn from, and become more complicated gradually.
