Product description

Chibis are the cute, miniature characters and creatures of Japanese comics. Chibis appear in all genres of manga, from the serious to the broadly comedic, which is why they enjoy such a high recognition factor among manga readers. And because chibis are such stylized and fun characters, many manga fans are motivated to learn how to draw them. In this book, chibis are covered character by character, according to the various subgenres in which they appear, including fantasy, occult, shoujo, fairy and action. In addition, important and appealing character design instruction is discussed, such as creating chibi eyes, body language and action poses. New to this book is the introduction of adorable chibi animals, chibi witches and vampires (all cute!), as well as harmless and hilarious little bad guys. Completing the book is a section on creating chibi props and backgrounds, which is designed to give readers the tools necessary to make their own chibi scenes and environments.
