Draw Modern Looks!

Expansion on the "Drawing Clothes" and "Cool Looks" chapters of Shojo Fashion Manga Art School, this title shows beginning and intermediate artists how to dress and accessorize their shojo characters in stylish clothes and accessories to fit any occasion.

Readers find modern looks and fashions for all the classic shojo graphic novel themes such as:

  • high school romances
  • complex dramas
  • stories about friendship and sweet comedies

Starting with basics like materials (primarily pencil and ink), color, movement, lines and shading, the book covers casual styles, school clothes, work attire, glamorous fancy dress and seasonal/situational looks. Loaded with techniques and tips from an exciting young artist and writer with a fresh style, this book includes great step-by-step instruction from initial lines to black-and white inked illustration to finished art in color.

I just got this book the other day--absolutely wonderful. This is more for people who already know how to draw figures & such, and it gives great examples of ideas. It doesn't just show you how to do one little thing & then move on, but it gives you an example, then suggests how you can tweak it to make it your own, and explains more on how to show character by their clothing. This book is definitely now one of my favorites, because it does what other books don't do--it shows you how to draw clothes on a human figure, which I think many books lack in not having enough detail. I highly recommend this book!

I've seen this book before, and if you like Hetalia, you'll see some...familiarities with the nations and some of the examples. For example, there is a blonde hocky player with the last name "Williams". If you didn't know, Canada's human name is Matthew Williams. Its a good book, but I found so many Hetalia refrances, I'd buy it just for a good laugh.

When you get a free sample and it is way too short, it can totally defeat the whole purpose! Like, if all the samples show are the cover page and copyright, how are you supposed to know what the actual book is like? Or if you get a drawing book sample andall you get is a summary of what materials to use! No one needs a book to tell them to use a pencil when drawing! And if that is all you get, how do you know if the lessons are good? LONGER SAMPLES!!!!!
