Description
Everyone loves chibi, the newest, hottest manga style out of Asia. Chibis--characters that range from hypercute miniature people to bizarrely sexy furry characters--come in all varieties, all roles, including chibi teenagers, faeries, schoolgirls, nurses, mermaids, devils, angels, and everything in between. Now Christopher Hart, the world's best-selling author of cartoon and drawing titles, shows readers exactly how to draw chibis, infusing them with personality and creating authentic costumes for them. Cute chibi-style monsters (small yet powerful), appealing cat-girls (humanlike, but with feline traits), superdeformed manga/chibi characters (used to make funny wisecracks)--every type of chibi character is shown here in crystal clear, step-by-step drawings. "Manga Mania Chibi and Furry Characters" will get every manga fan in on the chibi fun.
