Publisher Comments:

Renowned manga artist and comics creator Camilla D'Errico's beginner's guide to drawing her signature Japanese-style characters.

From comics to video games to contemporary fine art, the beautiful, wide-eyed-girl look of shoujo manga has infiltrated pop culture, and no artist's work today better exemplifies this trend than Camilla D'Errico's.  In her first instructional guide, D'Errico reveals  techniques for creating her emotive yet playful manga characters, with lessons on drawing basic body construction, capturing action, and creating animals, chibis, and mascots.  Plus, she gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at her character design process, pointers on creating their own comics, and prompts for finishing her drawings. Pop Manga is both a celebration of creativity and an indespensible guide that is sure to appeal to manga diehards and aspiring artists alike.
