Very practical & helpful in learning how to draw manga

Since childhood I have been fascinated with Japanese cartoons/comics. The book's instructions are so simple and straight to the point. I could actually follow every instruction, just like having a tutor right beside me guiding my every stroke. Step-by-step illustrations...
Since childhood I have been fascinated with Japanese cartoons/comics. The book's instructions are so simple and straight to the point. I could actually follow every instruction, just like having a tutor right beside me guiding my every stroke. Step-by-step illustrations also helped in understanding the instructions all the more. I'm so excited in trying it by following the guide. I can't believe I was able to make a manga character myself! Thanks to this book, reading it helped me draw those manga characters which I only used to admire! I can't wait to show my drawings to my friends. I would surely recommend this book even to non-professionals and beginners alike. Kudos to the writer!

    All your moneys worth? If you're a beginner.

    I wouldn't say to put your money into this UNLESS you're a beginner at drawing anime or manga. If you are a beginner this is a wonderful book to read! But there are many, many different styles of anime and manga, some better than this and some worse than this. This covers the ABSOLUTE basics with some extra, unneccessary steps in between. Again, I'd like to say if you have never drawn anime or manga before this is a wonderful book to read.

    My mom won't buy me rhis book so i have to get a sample if i want to read anything that is not free and plus i have to sk her about the free ones and make sure that it is appropriate for my age group and she reads the reviews. I don like it. The sample is just copyright and there are only three pages. If you want to read this,dont get the sample. Its lame.
