Summary

Summary

Nothing brings anime artists more satisfaction than creating original characters to use in a comic strip or graphic novel. Bestselling how-to-draw author Christopher Hart helps them reach this goal by providing insight into the six most popular anime types: schoolgirls, schoolboys, preteens, vengeful bad guys, humorous personalities, and fantasy figures. He supplies templates for each; an extensive array of "menus" of head and body types, outfits, and accessories; and detailed, accessible, step-by-step demonstrations and drawing exercises. Plus, Hart showcases some of the best anime artists in the world for this title--including Inma R., Tabby Kink, Ayame Shiroi, Euro Pinku, and Tina Francisco. It's the guide every would-be anime artist has been looking for!
