Publisher Comments:

Manga has taken the West by storm and people everywhere are inter-ested in learning how to recreate its distinctive Japanese style with large eyes, triangular faces, and dynamic expressiveness. Draw Your Own Manga was designed for beginners with no previous drawing experience. All the basic techniques you need to know are outlined, including everything you wanted to know but were too embarrassed to ask.

Draw Your Own Manga presents a manga story outline with a heroine and takes readers through the process of making a story from start to finish, discussing everything from materials and techniques, to proportions and facial expressions, to background and perspective, and layout and special effects. The book features interviews with two well-known manga artists, Toru Fujisawa and GTO Great Teacher Onizuka, who share information about their workplaces, tools and materials, and offer many helpful tips.

Most importantly, Draw Your Own Manga is simple and easy to understand, and features cute, easy-to-draw characters, including people of all ages. With clear and detailed instructions, this book can help make a manga artist out of anyone. The textbook of choice at Tokyo Animation College, the leading school for manga artists.
