Follow these simple basics to draw the guys and girls of various body types, in any pose. The Face. Learn how to draw an endless variety of features. Get the feeling across with facial expressions from a subtle quirk of the mouth to all-out crocodile tears. Then add the perfect hairstyle-the icing on the cake. The Look. "Shop" from an illustrated gallery of clothing and accessories for every season and occasion, from formal dresses to bunny slippers, with demonstrations and tips on designing your own original fashions. The Setting. Portray your character's world with demonstrations on how to create classic hangouts like classrooms, coffee shops and bedrooms. Complete with 14 start-to-finish demonstrations for drawing a range of character types, from the girl next door to the punk guy, from single characters to couples and groups, this book will help you bring a world of unique and memorable characters to life...and have lots of fun doing it!

Review quote

Good for any age group as it's not text heavy, [and is] well written. I must say that this book is one of the nicer drawn and laid out Western How to Draw Manga books out there. Pick it up if you're into this subject and need a decent drawing book. It's one book I doubt will ever become out of print." --"Manga Tutorials""This guide contains everything you need to know to create fabulous shojo manga characters with personality." --Arts Book Mix"
