Ever wanted to draw manga but didn't know where to start?
Ever felt there's something not quite right with your drawing but not sure what?
Draw Your Own Manga: All the Basics is the book for you! The textbook of choice at Tokyo Animation College-the leading school for manga artists in Japan, it covers all the basic information you need to get started on drawing manga with clear and easy-to-understand instructions.
* Which materials and tools are essential and how to use them.
* How to draw characters, and what proportions to use for dodies and faces.
* Techniques for creating simple but effective special effects in ink and screen tone.
* Easy-to-follow rules for drawing in different types of perspective.
* How to use photographic material for backgrounds.
Draw Your Own Manga: All The Basics also features interviews with two famous mang artists, Takao Yaguchi and Toru Fujisawa, who share their thoughts on the important features of manga and what it takes to become a manga artist.
Explanations are brief, and there are plenty of illustrations, but the content has plenty of meat, and the book would suit older children or teenagers who already have a strong interest in drawing.

Overall, though, very good.
-It doesn't describe how to draw people very well. If you've mastered that (which I haven't), the book's fine.
-It barely has any information on paneling.
-The first few pages are colored digitally. A bit ironic that there are pages colored digitally in a book that gives instructions on how to draw traditionally, don't you think?
Overall, if you're still a beginner, this book is not for you. But if you've gotten pretty good at drawing people and are ready to move on to publishing your own manga, buy this book immediately!
Tip for you all: Ignore page 73. It doesn't know what it's talking about.
I don't consider this a "how to draw" book but rather a "how to get started making manga books with all the appropriate materials." Give me a black marker and some colored pencils and I'm happy. This book isn't worth it.
This book is divided in 6 parts(chapters).
2.Draw your own Manga: All the basics
3.Lesson 1: Materials
4.Lesson 2: Drawing Characters
5.Lesson 3: special effects
6.Lesson 4: Background.
Part 2 tells u alot about materials and how to finish a draft while part#3 explains in more details all the materials you need and alot of variety you can and should use if you are serious about profesionaly final drafts. This chapter its very good because it gives u alot of insight on materials and how to take care of them!!!
Part#4 Drawing Characters is very good as well for a beginner. The only thing is that it focus only on the body proportion, the face/head position and the eyes, of course. Nothing about ears, hands, feet, clothe, chibis,fairies, dragons, etc.
Part#5 Special effects its all about what it says. Very good chapter and a lot of basic techniques to make your drawings look very cool.
Part#6 Background. This chapter is more about "Perspective". There is no how to draw a Beach, Forest, Sky or any fancy background.
Overall: Half of this book is informational and half Instructional. If you are looking for a book saturated with examples and exercises and how to draw body proportion from lots of angles, many eye style, ears, dragons, chibi, etc...This book ain't for you. I still love it and i will keep on using it and learning from it.
