The Master Guide to Drawing Anime: Romance
How to Draw the Popular Characters of Japanese Cartoons
By Christopher Hart (Author)
The newest addition to Christopher Hart’s bestselling Master Guide to Drawing Anime series takes on one of the most popular styles in Japanese cartoons: Romance. It provides an overview of romance subgenres and teaches every aspect of drawing anime romance, from common male and female character types to the dramatic—and funny—situations they find themselves in. Hart covers the complete arc of romantic anime stories—bliss, arguing, breaking up, and getting back together—and explains how to draw the anime head and body, match poses to the characters’ personalities, craft emotional expressions, design standout features, draw couples that click, and create a romantic setting. Fans will welcome this deep dive into the genre, and newcomers will be drawn in by the dynamic artwork that is a hallmark of Christopher Hart’s anime and manga titles.
