Manga's popularity has spread well beyond Japan and is now firmly entrenched in North American pop culture. Manga has even come to influence visual arts, advertising, and increasingly anime-infused cartoon programming. There are increasing career opportunities for talented artists in this field. This book introduces readers to the art of manga and is a guide to creating one's own images and stories in the distinctive manga style. It explains, in easy-to-follow text and logical step-by-step photographs, the basic techniques required for mastery of the manga style, with particular emphasis on distinctive, dramatic, and striking expressions and poses. These progressive drawing and coloring instructions are followed by several projects designed to reinforce what has been learned, hone the drawing skills, and produce quality manga artwork.
