Manga Anatomy Like You've Never Seen It
You know that manga faces are different from those of regular, American-style comic book characters. But did you know that manga bodies are also different? Well, they are, and Christopher Hart is here, once again, to tell you all about it in his signature accessible style.
This book is loaded with clear step-by-step instructions and illustrations, anatomical charts and information, and before-and-after comparisons you won t find anywhere else all tailored to creating authentic Japanese-style manga. And in addition to the breakdowns of the various sections of the body, you ll also learn how all the different elements including faces and costumes come together to form complete characters. "Basic Anatomy for the Manga Artist" contains everything you need to know.
No aspiring "mangaka" (manga artist) should be without it.
