How To Draw Anime & Game Characters Vol. 1: Basics for Beginners

Volume 1: Basics for Beginners and Beyond.

If you ever wanted to draw manga this is the book series for you! Ozawa starts at the very beginning with the very basics such as the typical problems a very beginner creates - what are you doing now that's wrong? There's even a section on how to hold your pencil! Learn the secrets behind perspectives, line drawing, poses, facial expressions (both regular and exaggerated), bodies, and in-depth details like hairstyles and feet! The final chapter of the book walks you through the little problems that might come up, such as getting the balance of the eye perspective just right.

Written by Tadashi Ozawa - a freelance animator for such companies as Studio GHIBLI and Mad House.
