Manga is hugely popular in Japan and is spreading in popularity all over the world, appealing to people of all ages and abilities. Building on the massive success of Mega Manga (first published in 2007), this book provides everything you need to know to either get started in this exciting artform, or to build on what you have already learnt. As well as including all the techniques of drawing, inking and colouring, the book offers a focused approach by highlighting each subject of manga art in turn, for example hair, eyes, clothes and accessories, and showing you how to draw them using scores of examples. As well as the numerous step-by-step illustrations in Yishan Li's distinctive and sophisticated style, there is a gallery of finished artworks at the end of the book for even more inspiration and ideas. This book is a 'must-have' for anyone interested in manga art.
Yishan Li is a professional Manga artist who lives in Edinburgh, Scotland. Yishan has been drawing Manga since 1998 when she was in high school and she has subsequently been published internationally including China, North America, France and the UK.
