I saw the preview of this book on youtube and look really interesting. I purchased this book for my nook and it work for a couple of minutes then it stop working. Now it won't work I' m really disappointed that's why I give it four stars. But overall during the couple of minutes it was working the book had easy to follow steps and guidelines to help you draw better or show how to draw manga if you never drew manga before.

Great Book! This book offers a lot of help for people just getting started drawing manga. Mark Crilley briefly covers different forms of manga and provides reference art for hairstyles, eyes, and facial expressions, hands, feet, etc. He also discusses wrinkles in clothing as well as perspective and the basics of creating a comic. I would recommend this book for anyone just getting started in manga.

For someone who is genuily intersested in drawing in the manga style, this book is going to help you out a lot. Mark crilley is a great artist as can be shown through his youtube videos and the tips and tricks he provides always inspires me to draw manga whenever i read his book. I recommend this for all levels, more so beginners, but there are definatley things in here for moderate to advanced drawers

Amazon has the ebook for $9.89, why is the nook version so much more? I want it but feel like I'm being cheated.

This book is really amazing! I've been looking for how-to manga books for beginners, but a lot of them could be frustrating for someone with no experience at all. This book is the best book you can find that is REALLY for beginners!

After reading this book, I can only say that this is perfect for people who are both new to the manga world and for those who just want to improve on what they have already learned. It has easy step by step instructions that increase in difficulty as you go along. From the eyes to the instructions on how to properly draw the features of the male and female body.

Really good very informative. I looked thru nearly 30 books before being completely happy with this. The only problem was I found it somewhat frustrating to try and draw from the ebook. I end up buying a paper copy of the book. If your an old school dootler u may want the hard copy
