    This is absolutely AMAZING!!!! I love drawing manga, but I could

    This is absolutely AMAZING!!!! I love drawing manga, but I could never figure out the trick behind coloring it until I found this book. It makes things so much more simplistic than any other book or video that's tried to explain things. (Though when it comes to actually drawing the manga this is more for intermediate artists in my opinion.)
