Como Dibujar Manga Volume 1: Personajes (How To Draw Manga Spanish Language Edition)

Purchased it at Barnes and Nobles for $15.00, was not in stock here. This is the first book in the series. I have purchased the first 10 books along with tons of art supplies for a relative. He will be busy the rest of the year!!!


I don't have the book but my best friend does and she shares it with me. You should see my before and after pictures! She normally points out errors to me,now once in a while i can point out some errors for her. I used to do "tomato" heads as ahe would call them,(just plain circles) but since i've read through the book I've gotten much better.I've learned how to position the head just right, i learned that the body is half the size of the legs, a chibi is 3-4 heads high,an adult is 7-8heads high,etc... This book is a great help for beginers and vetran drawers that want to renew their skills. since it comes in a series it will progress as you progress and help you along the way.You don't need to be an Anime and Manga geek like me and my friends to draw this different and very Unique style of art.

A great addition to "How to Draw Maga: getting startted"

While "Getting Started" deals with the very basic aspects of How to Draw Manga, This book in the series seems to extend beyond the very basics and gets more in depth with the aspects of Drawing, character creation, and the elements of making a Manga comic.Though as an afterthought, this book, "How to Draw manga: Compiling Characters" could probably replace "Getting Started", as it does cover just about the same topics, in fuller detail. So if you don't feel like spending the $20 some odd dollars on "Getting Started", this one can easily take its place. but it certainly doesn't hurt to get both

Great Book

Excellent book, shows how to draw using blocks and lines.Mostly very easy to understand, with cute little characters showing you what to do ^_^Also showed some Japanese words and there meanings.This book had 2 or 3 wrong translations but was overall a really good book ^^

A true asset

This particular book of the "How to Draw Manga" series helped me a lot when I was starting out. I think this is one of the best books they've written and frankly I hope it helps others as much as it has helped me.
