LIBRARY JOURNAL Starred Review

This small but mighty book should be named the definitive guide to drawing awesome manga artwork. Instagrammer and expert manga artist Sharawna explains how to draw manga fashion, from casual clothes and streetwear to traditional Japanese attire. The designs are simple enough for anyone to accomplish. The book includes sidebars about all types of clothing accessories, which make the drawings customizable and realistic. Sharawna also adds sidebars of “Manga Art Secrets,” which stretch the book’s main lessons by tasking readers to do more with the details that reflect their characters’ personalities. After each chapter, there’s an “Exercise Roundup” that includes additional small activities that mesh with the chapter’s subject and are designed to hone one’s drawing skills. Between chapters, there are pages that highlight manga artists who draw for a living or for fun.
VERDICT An unusual but highly insightful guide that also looks at artists who do this kind of drawing and their multiple career paths. An essential purchase where drawing books and manga are popular.
