I thought the book would be a compilation of works from several artists, but instead, it looks at the work of a few, maybe less than 2 or 3 artists. They pretty much look the same. What the illustrations DO show (in no particular order because the pictures are grouped by subject) tips that make a drawing "good" but not "good" in the sense they will transform the amateur artist into a professional.

- Make sure you note the direction of light in your drawings. (curious seeing the drawings have so few shadows...)
- Be mindful of perspective so your drawings do not look flat.
- Use clothing, hair, and accessories to create a feeling of motion.

Some Expert advice I would have liked to learn FROM MANY ARTISTS are:

- Compare and contrast mediums of different types and from different manufacturers
- Inking techniques including fills and line variations
- Color palettes and choices rather than "use earthy colors..."
- Tones (no offense, but the pics are rather flat)
- Markets for distribution, tips on entering the market, who's buying?
- A list of notable manga-ka
- Perhaps some tips for those wanting to become "experts" so they can then become "professionals"

I also would have liked to see the methodology behind proportions explained. Although this is not a book on HOW to draw, seeing how or why choices were made would have been nice. "The girl is young so make her head a little bigger..." No, a lot of manga heads are typically larger than average. Manga characters also have larger eyes, smaller feet, tiny noses and mouths...the drawings stray from the typical manga. These are akin to good cells from Saturday morning cartoons in the U.S...not a real good representation of manga art.

I have a lot of experience with graphic editors, but unless that part of the book covers hardware -- pens, tablets, and other digital drawing technologies, that section is pretty useless to me.

Otherwise a good book -- heavy, well-contructed, arrived in great shape. I'll probably give it to my 9-year old daughter. She likes to draw and probably wouldn't bother to read it any way, but she might find it easier than drawing from photos. A slightly disappointing purchase.

It's got a lot of good information in it, I have been drawing for a good 5, 6 years since college, and this book brings good supplement to my knowledge base. I was never much of a fan of manga, did a lot of pencil and charcoal realism painting, but only in the past year have started digital work and started to appreciating anime style (as it gets less and less homogenous on character and drawing designs)

I wouldn't use this book as a "teach me how to draw" starters, but rather a reference guide for those who already have experience in drawing. Chances are, if you don't have a few sketch books complete and already have an established portfolio, this book probably isn't for you. But if you have a good grip in drawing already, this is a very, very nice reference, and for those who are new to photoshop and things, this book also has nice pointers on how to work with channels, RGB hues, etc. I find it tremendously helpful.

Overall, this book is well worth its price, it teaches all you need as far as digital coloring and modifications, the drawing aren't breathtakingbut is down to earth and easy to refer to, and I think that's the focus of the author, giving good pointers and references for those who want it.

4.5/5 stars.

Although this book has 300 pages, it does not go into great detail when it comes to sketching out each character that is depicted. To some, that might throw them off if they're just learning, but for me, the images were good examples to use as references.

Each chapter deals with different genre's, such as Girls, Fantasy, Monsters, etc. Several of the illustrations are good in detail, but they lack any major guidance for beginners. Vague captions are inserted here and there around the images, but that's about it. I suppose the author assumes that you have some knowledge of drawing and digital coloring, which is probably why he doesn't go into great detail.

For me, this book is great to use to form ideas for character concepts. My favorite portion of the book is towards the end, where you're given a better idea on how to digitally color your drawings and how to utilize Adobe Photoshop. It's a shame it's one of the shortest chapters.

Overall, if you have a good grip on drawing and you don't need a great deal of guidance, then this book is for you. Every page shows a step by step progression of a character.

However, if you're just learning how to tackle this style and you're looking for in-depth detail on how to make things look right, then this book may not be for you.

Great illustrations throughout and they're all in color, too.

I give it an OK rating (3 out of 5). The book is thick, colorful, and full of different characters and monsters. It's also very cheap and made out of good materials.

However, this is not what I would call authentic manga. The artists are great, don't get me wrong, but the artwork is simply not authentic Japanese comic style. Ever watched The Boondocks? Totally Spies? Though they may look anime (Japanese cartoon) style, it's simply not anime. Same goes with this book.

I don't know about anybody else, but if I want to learn something, I want to learn from the real thing. However, if you just want to look at different styles to make your own, then this book is pretty decent. It's not a real "how to" book, but more of an illustrator with little comments on the sides.
