Profile Picture

The Manga Artist's Workbook is a mix between a How-to-Draw book and a Sketch Pad. It goes over head positions, eyes, eye expressions, hair, body form, hands, clothing, and more. In the midst of informing you on basics and essentials to this style of drawing, it has tracing paper and graph paper to help you learn the lining and spacing. Often times the book gives you an example drawing and asks you to either recreate it or recreate an aspect of the drawing on a partially finished example.
