good gift for starting Manga artists

This was a holiday gift for my brother (who is an adult). He has been enlarging and copying (by hand) Manga drawings for at least a year, and his work is beautiful. He just couldn't seem to make the leap to making up his own characters. I flipped through this book once it arrived, and thought it (along with 2 others I got him) would go a long way towards teaching him how to draw his own characters. I don't know how much overlap there is within this quite extensive series, but at least with these first few books there didn't seem to be much. When he got the books he praised them highly and he seems excited to put the new techniques to use.

It's all about backgrounds and tones

A complement to the first book in this series, this edition focuses on backgrounds and effects. That said, it covers action lines, perspective, and toning with insider techniques such as drawing motion lines using a thumb tack, etching, applying tone, and creating tone effects. I also rather liked how it used actual panels from manga's printed like Those Who Hunt Elves, Angel Arm, and Lucky Rakuun. This book is more for the aspiring mangaka who will use the knowledge of toning to great use unlike the average artist who just want to learn the drawing style. This book has four pages of nudity near the end as it covers shading the body using tones. If you're buying a toning book for a younger reader, get the Pen & Tone Techniques edition which has no nudity present. Other than that, is you're not adverse to nudity, then this is the best book to start learning how to tone.

Good,but not the best

This is good book, but really expensive and short.This is about backgrounds in manga,and this book teaches how to make background , what shows mangahumans feelings.This book has about 4 pages whit naked mangahumans, so this is up 13 aged.Im 13 and i like this series
