Overview

With its stylistic characters and vivid colors, manga has captured the imagination of millions. However, creating it from nothing can be difficult, no matter how inventive an artist is. But now, following the success of Manga Matrix, which taught readers how to create manga characters, Super Manga Matrix will inspire and guide them to create both manga characters and manga stories!

Never has character making been approached as methodically as in Super Manga Matrix. Using the unique matrix system, the creation of manga can be plotted and cross-sectioned on a matrix diagram. The result is the remarkable creation of new types of heroes, evil creatures, and multi-formed beasts whose forms and costumes can be designed infinitely. Super Manga Matrix explores a myriad of creatures including angels, demons, dragons, monsters, phantoms, spirits, robots, human, beast combinations, and visionary beings.

Regardless of age or skill level, from budding artist to polished professional, anyone with an interest in creating manga will find Super Manga Matrix a valuable resource.

    Great Book

    This is a very good and well written book. If you are looking for a how to draw book, I wold reccomend the Mastering Manga books by Mark Crilley, but if you want a book on characer design, this is probably the best book( On the Nook Store) . This book doesnt teach you how to draw characters, but thats not what its about. It is about how to create characters.
