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 Mixshow more
