This is like the best drawing book ever! I never knew how to draw muscles or anything on a person but now I do. I mean I drew manga real good but when I used this book I learned how to draw muscles. It has a good price too. When I picked it up I thought it would be like $40 but it wasn't. It was only $20!
The author of this book is a great artist and takes a serious approach to showing the reader how to draw comics. He shows the basic geometry of the characters and the proportions, and then shows the details. He also goes though the character poses and how to draw the pages in a more exciting manner.
