With manga becoming increasingly popular in the West, more and more amateur artists now want to create their own original manga art. This book covers everything the beginner needs to know about drawing their favorite manga characters, including people, monsters, and mascots. All the basic techniques are covered with clear instructions and plenty of step-by-step illustrations. There is advice on drawing figures, adding expressions, designing clothing, and posing characters. An essential section on creating different characters explains simple anatomy and examines the design points which make each character unique. Other sections cover the practical techniques needed to create comics—developing storyboards, creating layouts, scripting, including backgrounds, and using inking and coloring techniques. A final chapter includes more advanced techniques to enable readers to create finished artwork on their own.
