You want to draw manga, and we’re gonna show you how. You’ll get VERY good at this. After all, we’ve been teaching people just like you for over 20 years.

How to Draw Manga: Character Pose Collection #1 features two dozen reference illustrations created by professional manga artists Ryo Katagiri and Hiroyuki Sengoku, whose work has appeared in Shonen Sunday magazine and other leading Japanese publications. You will learn how to draw like a professional because your teachers are professionals.

Manga figure drawings begin as a bunch of shapes sketched on a piece of paper or digital canvas. Circles, squares, triangles, rectangles and trapezoids connect to one another like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Once completed, the sketch can be inked with smooth, clean lines to form a dynamic, natural-looking figure.

Each two-page spread in this book features a reference drawing that resembles a mannequin, as well as a finished character drawing based on that model. The illustrations are accompanied by text boxes that highlight important aspects of the compositions.

This workbook is a great companion volume to Manga University’s critically acclaimed flagship book, "How to Draw Manga: Basics and Beyond."
