Book Description:

Who better to walk you through the basics of creating action-packed manga than a professional Japanese illustrator and animator? Containing 40 detailed tutorials, How to Create Manga: Drawing Action Scenes and Characters will add a whole new set of skills to your manga-drawing toolkit, offering tips and pointers only an expert will know for creating dynamic illustrations.

Enhance your visual storytelling skills with methods and ideas from the world of cinema and traditional figure drawing. Introduce perspective and angles, create more expressive characters and integrate them all to bring your story to life.

The first section looks at how to build your scene, while the second shows you how to pose and position your characters. Put the two together and you're on your way to creating artworks that will leap off the screen and page. The techniques covered in this book include:

  • Framing devices
  • Multiple perspectives
  • Split-screen viewpoints
  • Closeups and group shots
  • And much more!
Ideal for digital as well as traditional artists looking for new techniques to access the world of action manga, Drawing Action Scenes and Characters allows you to harness the wisdom and experience of one of Japan's leading master artists.
