Overview

Manga is everywhere—in films, on television, and in many forms of advertising. Now, learning the creative techniques behind the heavily stylized, wildly popular Japanese comic is made simple! One hundred and forty color illustrations, plus easy-to-follow directions, are divided into three sections: Basic Tutorials; Creation, which explains how to turn raw ideas into finished comics; and Projects from the Masters, with exhaustive detail on producing professional-grade artwork. The instruction covers not only traditional media such as colored markers, pencil, and watercolor, but also computer-generated manga. And there’s advice on special techniques for drawing the distinctive eyes and hairstyles that are the genre’s hallmark, as well as on character creation, developing a first sketch, using color and motion, sequencing, pacing, and more.
