Much better than I expected - while much of the book is photoshop or illustrator-specific commands that are already far out of date, there's some good stuff here about the principles and techniques of digital art (as applied to cartooning) that are independent of the programs themselves. I was particularly helped by the advice on efficient use of layers and paths. But the focus is particularly on digital finishing techniques - particularly the possibilities of computer inking and coloring - so don't look for how-to-draw lessons. And the example art is good enough to let me trust the authors, without being so good as to intimidate (the authors won the Tokyopop Rising Stars of manga contest for new American manga artists.)

Interested in creating comic-book style coloring effects on your computer with Photoshop, etc. but not sure how to get started? Not satisfied with other 'How To' and 'Step By Step' books that are not as advertised? Look no further. 'Digital Manga Workshop' is an excellent beginners guide to computer coloring, whether you're an afficianado of Japanese comics or not. It offers easy-to-follow, simple directions on getting started with scanning, formatting line-art, coloring scanned images, and using layers, adding highlights and shadows, and much more. This is a superb effort and a great resource.
