How To Draw Amazing Manga - (B&W Saver): (132 Pages): From the Author of "How to Draw Anatomy for Comics" (How to Draw Comics & Manga Book 8)
For me, the best part of the book was the section showing Perspective, which is Chapter 3 in the Anatomy book. There are about 5-6 pages illustrating the concept in different ways. Following the perspective chapter, Stan presents lessons on Basic Human Anatomy. This chapter is the heart of the Anatomy book. But don't miss that brute on the cover of Chapter 4! It's "Ultra Chameleon" man. (I guess I'm the only reader who doesn't know who Ultra Chameleon is. Sigh.)
Another excellent section is Chapter 6, IN DETAIL, where Stan illustrates the muscles of the Neck. This is really interesting, and it shows the "ropy" style of muscles in the neck.
Some other highlights:
♦ Same high quality as in his other books.
♦ Love the artwork--especially the 'LAVA MAN!"
♦ The "progression" of drawing technique is very helpful to see how the artist is accomplishing the sketch.
♦ Stan explains the "Golden Ratio." It took me just a few moments to grasp this concept. Not too difficult to get the hang of.
♦ On a more mundane level, I like the extensive Table of Contents that makes to easier to find sketches I like.
Reading Suggestion: If possible, read this book on a color screen. On my kindle, I couldn't really appreciate the sketches as much as on another monitor.
Honestly, there is WAY TOO MUCH to talk about in a review. This bundle book is full of lots of fun and educational sketches. The author is one very talented individual, who clearly understands his craft.
√ REALLY AN EXCELLENT BOOK. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
He begins with the basics, teaching us about shapes, shading and perspective. Then he starts slowly, teaching us how to loosely outline our work, how to highlight and darken the important parts, and how to pull it all together. He focuses on each piece individually, teaching us the fundamentals of drawing things like eyes, ears, noses, necks, even hands and feet. All with step-by-step picture guides!
In his book about drawing Manga, Kutcher goes a step farther by showing us the difference in traditional and manga anatomy. He shows us how to exaggerate our faces and poses, creating the same drama and tension that true manga artists have perfected. Kutcer shows us how to use scenery, teaching about foreground, middle ground and background. He teaches us about draping clothing, using the weather and much more!
These guides were really easy to understand, and the picture guides make learning a breeze! If you like drawing, these books are for you!
