Art of Drawing Manga
Fusing the Japanese terms man (spontaneous, whimsical, distorted) and ga (drawing, painted, or printed image), Manga has become the hot style for comic book and graphic novel aficionados. But what does it take to master this lively and kinetic technique? Take this unmatched class in the form, which provides drawing basics with a stunningly illustrated history that gives you a greater understanding of the genre’s diversity and richness. A discussion of tools, narrative structure, and composition set the creative process in motion, and it continues with guidance on character development, visual perspective, and depicting nuances of light and shadow. Find out how to move from frame to frame, change settings, imbue a protagonist with personality, and more. Every page is an inspiration!
