This is what I needed. It does lack in a few areas, and only really concentrates (in clothes) modern girls' clothes, which isn't a huge issue. It also mostly concentrates on drawing teenage girls, and doesn't put any focus on different age groups, but it does help a bit with drawing guys. It also covers, somewhat, drawing the attitudes for your characters. It's good for learning to draw proportions, poses, fabric types, hands and feet, hair, faces and heads, including profile views, whether you' [...]
I mostly picked this up because there's a large section in it on drawing clothes and hairstyles, which I really needed. I ended up loving the whole thing. I really like Flores' art style, which is part of why I like it so much. But also, the way the instruction is presented is very straight-forward and easy to follow.The part I was interested in--the fashion and hairstyles--is very well done. The only thing that was a little disappointing is that though there's a wide variety of hairstyles, only [...]
This is a really great reference book. It gives you lots of ideas on how to expand your wardrobe choices for characters and gives ideas for hairstyles as well.
If you are a self-taught artist of the manga art style, then this is a great reference to have on your bookshelf. Not only does it cover the basics of building a human body, it shows you how to add clothes without making them look almost painted onto the figure. There is even a section about how to draw multiple characters as well as some segments on perspective.The layout of this book makes it easy to find what you are looking for and has an index in the back for quick searches. There is also a [...]
Great for beginners.
Provides basic overviews of many things, and a slightly more in-depth look at clothing. I prefer the in-depth coverage of the second book, but this has a few tips that the others don't.
Checked out thru Kindle Unlimited since I already own Shojo Fashion Manga Art School Year 2; I really liked the brief but helpful section on drawing comic backgrounds and scenery in particular; definitely gonna revisit it!
It's Alright, better than most Manga books I've tried. Honesty I haven't found better in all the bookstores I've looked in, as far as the way it teaches you. A lot of Art books are more of a showcase than a teacher. This was the most "Teacher" Manga book I've found. So either I don't have access to better, or this is as good as it gets for Manga. A lot of artists are really good at what they do, but teaching is another talent that not all people have. Thus they show a lot of examples in their "S [...]
I loved this book so much. I bought 4 manga books for my 11 year old for her birthday, and this is by far my favorite. I love the drawing style, the format, the way every element builds up, but by far, my favorite part was the character studies in the back. She breaks down the posture, clothing, personality, etc. of each character, facial expressions, and really clearly illustrates the process. I've had a lot of fun working through this with my daughter. Seriously fun.I highly recommend.
To start off, this is a great book. Honestly it contains a lot of invaluable information relating to the drawing of clothes and styles. I love this book.What I do not love is the ebook I purchased. I purchased the ebook from the Kobo website and I was sorely disappointed. For although the content was great there was a lot of stuff that just wasn't right. It is not uncommon to be missing images and occasionally the words in paragraphs were all mixed around. I would recommend buying this book I wo [...]
Very interesting ways to draw people and the style of clothes.
I Really Want This!!!!!!!
Literally the best how to draw book I've ever read. Some diversity, great fashion & the drawing style is cute, effective and pretty accurate. :)
One of the few books I found very helpful in learning to draw and wanted to buy - I would definitely recommend this as a resource.
One of my favorite art books!
