one of the best in the series

this book rocks. this has soooo much stuff all cramped into one little book. This covers every thing from face, hair, body, muscles, eyes and even a ninja section! and tons more. If your finding it hard to draw a pose, the simply flick to the back, heaps of poses, and even how to put glasses on your character and make them hold cigaretts (for some reason)..... get this book. Period.

Finally! A HTDM book on males

Finding a How to Draw Manga book focusing on males is quite hard to find and gratefully, this book is comprehensive. What it covers by chapters: Chapter 1: Approaches to Drawing the Male Form Chapter 2: The Male Body - Parts and Connectives Chapter 3: Basic Poses - The Figure Clothed and Unclothed Chapter 4: Male Clothing and Accessories Chapter 5: Representation Techniques Used By Manga Artists Chapters 1 & 2 covers the male anatomy from skeletal structure, body types, head, neck, shoulder, torso, arms, waist, legs, feet, hair, and hands. It even covers how to draw older men which is useful to know. The remaining chapters focus on clothing and offers an array of perspective when drawing a guy from sitting, walking, laying down, and so forth. It also shows various occupational uniforms, the traditional male kimono, and a nicely laid out reference of various hand gestures, footwear, and glasses. Overall, once you learn the male anatomy, you can keep this book as a reference.

A Worthwhile Book

This book is great for any manga artist who wants to improve their skills at drawing male characters. Although some basic knowledge is needed for you to use this book it includes information on poses, form, clothing and representation techniques. The book is easy to use with clear diagrams and a good easy to understand lay out. This book is also great value for money, in the UK you'd probably have to pay about $26 for a book similar to this. A must buy!!!


This book taught me how to draw the sometimes complex techniques to drawing the muscles and torso. At last, I can draw men! As far as drawing faces on them, My male characters all end up wearing hockey masks for some reason, lol.As it has been said before, this book is not really for a beginner.
