Publisher Comments:

Hold on to your heartstrings—a delightful, whimsical world full of glossy-eyed, pudgy-cheeked manga chibis and cuter-than-cute critters awaits you! In this colorful book, you’ll learn everything you need to start drawing standard chibis, super-chibis, and a range of two-legged and four-legged chibi animals. From using basic tools to capturing proportions, rendering facial features, creating expressions, and mastering poses, this book is jampacked with valuable instruction for drawing all things chibi! Along the way, fun practice exercises offer tips for honing your craft, while handy templates for photocopying or scanning allow you to put your newfound skills to use.

Synopsis:

With big glossy eyes and soft pudgy cheeks, it's hard not to love manga chibis and critters. In this latest addition to the Walter Foster Studio series for tweens, aspiring artists can learn all about these cute creatures as they follow along with step-by-step drawing projects that range from a mischievous chibi princess and a roly poly ninja to a furry manga bunny and a cuddly panda cub. Also included is a chapter on how to render any animal or person as a "chibi-fied" character. Instructions for adding color with markers or watercolor make this cartooning book perfect for any tween fan of manga or anime.

About the Author

More than 80 years ago, Mr. Walter T. Foster set out to prove that anyone can learn to draw. The “how to” art books he wrote, illustrated, printed, bound, packaged, and shipped on his own soon grew tremendously in popularity! Today the Walter Foster Publishing company carries on the tradition, developing books and kits that encourage creativity and spark imaginations.
