How to Draw Manga, Volume 18: Super-Deformed Characters, Volume 1: Humans

    A Kid's POV. (Point of View)

    True. To some people it's not very helpful, but it's very good as a drawing chibies book.

    This book was not helpful at all...

    I ordered this book thinking I would better understand how to draw super deformed characters, but after reading it through, I came down with serious artists block (well...maybe not THAT serious)... But I do not recommend this book if you are just starting off in drawing anime or super deformed characters. I did not learn anything that I haven't already learned before. Also,the artwork provided as examples was not to my liking. Overall, this book was not helpful at all.
