Review

"The perfect book for anyone who wants to understand and draw the Japanese world of Manga characters. If you are new to Manga it explains everything from the different types of humans and creatures as well as the personality traits of each one. The book goes way beyond just simply drawing for drawing sake. You can see how J.C. is able to build a character up from a sketch to a fully clothed and properly posed figure and how to give them the appearance of thought. Something a lot of other books on drawing leave out, but extremely important if you are drawing a comic or creating an animation." --Marc Spess, author of Secrets of Clay Animation Revealed
