Book Description

Everything you need to start drawing manga!

In the jam-packed pages of Manga Crash Course, popular YouTube artist Mina "Mistiqarts" Petrovic shares with you all the techniques you need to create not just manga figures and faces, but full characters and scenes. After learning the basics for drawing and coloring eyes, hands, feet and other body parts, you'll move on to facial expressions, hair and clothes--the things that will make your characters stand out from the rest.

Then, you'll put what you learned to the test as you play the Character Idea Game. Roll the dice to create wacky character combinations like Scary Vampire School Girl or Noisy Winged Knight. Finally, put your characters together in full manga scenes and paneled pages to create a dynamic story.
