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!

    Goodish

    To be honest it's okay. I peraonally don't find it very informative, and the art style is some of the older anime styles so the edges are sharper and it looks less professional.

    This is great!

    This was really cool, it made drawing the figures easy! I had been trying and failing to sketch my fav anime characters, but this book made so much easier. It is still a bit tricky but I am getting the hang of it. It really helped with the eyes, they always looked lopsided and irregular, now they are much better.

    Awesome!

    This book was great!!!! I have always wanted to draw manga, and this goes through all of it: faces, hands, hair, chibi, body... step by step. It has WAY more pages than it says it does. Experts would probably choose another book, though
