Manga Art Inspiration and Techniques from an Expert Illustrator by Mark Crilley

"I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review."

The book, Manga Art: Inspiration and Techniques by Mark Crilley have been super helpful understanding and learning how to create my own manga drawings! It's packed with tips and realistic examples inside. I love the clothing design and so many examples to learn from! The book is always better to have and use to draw while learning. I could never stand using download images or books on my tablet. I have a hard time to work up ideas and clearly see the images in one shot without zooming in on the image.

The best part is that it's from an expert, who draws manga characters often, Plus, with each image drawing inside, it doesn't matter if they are small or tall or huge, there are so many creative ones inside that really help the reader, such as myself! I honestly thought it is hard, but this book makes it a piece of cake! This book is simple enough for a beginner and helpful for those already starting out. It's quite a lesson book and should be great for children to learn as well!

I honestly have no negativity towards learning from this book, it keeps me interested. Also the guidance with each scene or if you want a specific character design. It will cover mermaids, fantasy style characters, weather changes, Lolita girls and just so many things that everyone loves to imagine or want to create, even for comics! Why not try to make your own book it's pretty cool if you know how to draw it up and have fun with it. Finally, this is an excellent book, and love that the steps aren't childish but large photos with easy to see lines for anyone to follow.
