    Good For Young Beginners

    I gave this book to a pre-teen cousin of mine as a birthday gift and he loved it. As an artist myself, I appreciate the details in the book like the tracing paper, grid paper, etc. A great book for young artists wanting to learn how to draw Manga.

    ITS GREAT!!

    I got this book for me to practice my manga. (im a begginer) and it is a great way to learn the shape and structure of female manga heads, eyes, how to draw the body, hair, just about everything you need to draw a great manga character. The first time i read it, i got fustrated because i couldnt do it just like the illustration, but as i kept practicing, it was amazing!! I would really reccomend this for begginers! It even has outfits to dress up your characters!! From fantasy, to casual, to well... ANYTHING!! Again i highly reccomend this for anyone!!

    Wonderful for Cartoonist of All Ages!

    I bought this for my own pleasure. A small book on how to draw Manga. It comes with a grand amount of draw me now!, do not wait. Includes tracing paper and grid paper.
    It is a wonderful inspiring book. It lends itself to the artist on the go. Trip in the car or outing to the park. Wish more artist books came as well laid out. It is excellent for the new comer to Manga.
