Good how to draw manga books.
I was wondering what are some good how to draw manga books. Im at an intermediate level if that helps? I’ve been searching for ages on amazon and ebay but can’t seem to find a all around good book, if one even exists. What are some general drawing books that helped you?
Most “how to draw manga” books written in English are bad. This is because manga are Japanese, of course. The good books about manga are also presumably written in Japanese.If you’re trying to find out how to make manga, get a book on comics. It will teach you what you need to know about panel/dialog composition and, and necessary tools (if you’re making traditional comics).If you’re just trying to pick up the style, imitation is really the best way to go for that. However, it should be backed by a working knowledge of anatomy, shading, composition, etc etc. All of which can be learned from more basic books on figure drawing and artistic basics.

Drawing books to read.
Hello folks,I have 3 drawing tutorial books:1.Fun with a pencil2.Drawing the head and the hand (Both by Andrew Loomis)3.Drawing for beginners by Dorothy FurnissI’m a beginner and I’m confused, which one should I choose or which to read first?Thanks in advance!
I never read a book on how to draw when I was a beginner…Reading books usually have inspirations and different types of drawings with a lot of examples. I recommend them for getting new ideas and trying out different styles. There is no harm in reading them, it might be better if you have no idea what to draw at first. But sometimes it overwhelming and kind of depressing if you start out as a real bad artist and your trying your best. Pick the book that appeals most to you and open it, and explore. (There’s also something called the internet and google if you want to learn how to draw and not spend any money)What I did was try to draw on my own (with shading, cartoon, anime, real life, humans, animals) and copy pictures (don’t say it’s your own, it’s just for practice). It really helps, trust me, because your actually drawing instead of reading a book and doing nothing. (For example: You can’t learn to swim by reading a book you’ve got to try first) I’ve been drawing since I was 4 and it wasn’t even that great. But now that I’m older and can use photoshop and everything. So grab a pencil (any will do, but don’t use a lead pencil if you want to shade) and a paper. Your hand will get used to the strokes and patterns and your eyes will see dimensions, depth and much more. It might be hard a first, but it’s just your hand getting used to it. Use soft strokes, and don’t press too hard but visible enough to see. Also sharpen your pencil and grab an eraser. Do anything you want to! Art is art. But if you think it looks silly, probably you should try again.A teacher that actually knows art is good if you want to get a job in art or something.I can go on, but you probably won’t want to read so much and I might be spending 5 hours on this…Search up on the Internet on how to draw. Youtube it also pretty good because you can see what people are actually doing.Best of luck on drawing! 🙂 ♥Hope I helped.

is there a book on how to draw traditional chinese/Japanese clothing.
or ancient chinese/japanese clothing?
I don’t know if there’s a book on how to draw Asian clothing. There might be if you look hard enough, but my suggestion would be to find a book on ancient Chinese or Japanese fashions and use the photos as reference. Try to find books with photographs of people wearing the clothes so you can see how the fabrics drape over the human body.Of the few books like that I came across, “Chinese Fashion: From Mao to Now (Dress, Body, Culture)” by Juanjuan Wu is one of the few with photos of real people wearing traditional Chinese clothing. Although, if the preview on Amazon is anything to go by, the book is a little too text-heavy for art reference. It’s also freaking expensive. You can find it hear:http://www.amazon.com/Chinese-Fashion-Dress-Body-Culture/dp/1845207785/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1325835295&sr=1-1That was about it in terms of books I found, unfortunately. The other thing I found, close to what I was talking about was a website. http://jimbei.com/ But like I said, try changing your search to books about traditional Chinese and Japanese clothing in general, and you should find references easily!
How to draw manga books.
Can anybody reccpmend some good how to draw manga books?Or any books on drawing human anatomyIts all because me and my friends have good ideas for manga. But i want to get betterSo any good drawing books would be nice
one does not simply suddenly draw good manga.One book won’t make you van gogh. Several books and a few years/months later, you’ll be van gogh.First and foremost, manga, like any other art style, can only be achieved after practicing realism. As all art styles are based off life. Some good books to develop this are; “How to draw what you see” and “drawing on the right side of the brain.” I know thins may sound like something you don’t want to do, like omg I don’t want ugly human faces but pretty manga ones. well like it or not, you have to learn it in order to be good.Then from there on you need some individual studies and develop your manga styles, there are no good books for this. You have to do it yourself. Look at what you like, look at others and just go. And of course, learn how to panel and what not.I could add more but that’d be too much too read, so good luck 😀 If you need anymore help I’m available.
Is there a book on how to draw Sesame Street Characters.
I have been trying to find a book on how to draw Sesame Street Characters. Is there one? I have found books on “How to Draw Disney, or Sponge Bob, or Warner Brother’s Characters”, but I can not find one on Sesame Street Character’s. Does anyone know of a book? If so, can you include the name and…
I found a “Learn to Draw the Muppets” by Joe Ewers, 1998, ISBN 1560103981. “Simple step-by-step lessons for drawing five favorite Muppet characters–Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo and Animal.” http://www.amazon.com/Learn-Draw-Muppets…You could also check out this book, which has the slightly odd library subject heading “Puppet making — Drawing.” I’ve never seen that one before!Sesame Street character book :featuring Jim Hensons Muppets.Jim Henson1979English Book 78 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 29 cm.[New York : Children’s Television Workshop,No ISBN given, but there is a LCCN: 85-109868The second one appears to be pretty rare, but the Library of Congress has it and may lend it. Inquire at your local public library if you are interested, because I can’t find any copies for sale online.I hope this helps!
