Amazon Customer Review

This book covers all aspects of drawing female and male figures, the instructions are easy to follow and the illustrations are colourful.

I really like the chapters on inking and colouring, there is information on composition, backgrounds and how to use colour, light and shade.

There is advice on using markers to colour skin, hair and eyes and also chapters on using other mediums. I found this book very helpful and inspiring, it contains all the information I need to start drawing in the manga style.
