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 basically about materials, and though it's not how to draw the people, it is VERY helpful with the materials, techniques and skills you might otherwise be overlooking. It is written in a comic style, and so is easy and fun to follow, even at the parts that tend to get a bit complicated.
These and "Beyond the Basics" are the indispensable manga guide books.
