The book, Manga Art for Beginners by Danica Davidson & Melanie Westin is a wonderful way to learn to draw your own characters! Ever wanted to draw those animated characters you see on TV, in a comic, or advertisement, well you can! This book covers everything from Hero/Heroines, Male and females, maids, butlers, gothic, magical girls, chibi, and much more! They will fill you in on all things Manga and help you design your own. There will be basic skills covered, from facial expressions of eyes and just the features. You will see step by step images and many examples of how it will look or appear as a final result. I love how easy this book makes it easy to draw Manga and nothing complicated inside this book! I love the different types of characters I can draw and how fun it would be to create my own Manga image. I knew someone when I was going through high school that could draw Manga characters really well and I know I love art and can draw, but never understood what made the Manga characters a bit different from normal images, except for the eyes. So with this book, I feel well informed and can easily draw up my own with each step and helpful tip inside! Finally, this is an excellent book and a great help!
