You'll see how the smallest details, like extra-long eyelashes or a highlight on the lips, can make the biggest difference!

So you want to draw like CLAMP (Cardcaptor Sakura and CLAMP School Detectives), or Mineo Maya (Patalliro), or Fuyumi Soryo (Mars) ... or (best of all) uniquely like YOU?! With Girl to Grrrl Manga, you'll learn to recognize and replicate authentic shoujo styles&#151classic, contemporary, retro, children's, aesthetic, modern, illustrative&#151on your way to achieving your own, fabulous, one-of-a-kind style.
