Everything you need to become a manga artist, with step-by-step instructions, exercises, and tips and tricks and feature spreads from other artists.

With the interest in manga-style art now stronger than ever - its influence can be seen in the Pixar films Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph and other movies - this is the perfect book to slipstream into manga drawing. Packed full of step-by-step sequences for face, body, and poses, you too can draw in the manga-art style.

Learn how to draw figures in the characteristic style of your favourite characters by building a portfolio of drawings. At the end of each chapter is a series of practice exercises where you're encouraged to trace or freehand draw subjects from earlier on. You'll end up with a portfolio of sketches charting your artistic development. There is also an inspirational artists-in-residence section, where cool artists share their manga-art secrets and showcase their own art.
