This is the second book in the Ultimate Manga Lessons. I own the first and the fifth one. This one gives you great insight on the tools used for drawing and creating your own manga. It gives great step-by-step instructions on how to use them as well. It also explains speed lines and how to start creating your own manga. I highly suggest this book to anyone. Each book that I have gotten from the Ultimate Manga lessons I have been extremely pleased with. If you want to draw great manga, these are the books for you!
