Year 1 — This book demonstrates the basic manga practices of stylized proportions, clean lines, and contrast between black and white, with some work in color. It covers techniques for drawing heads, eyes, noses, mouths, ears, skin tones, makeup, hair, facial expressions, bodies, clothing, and accessories, then shows you how to put it all together to create specific looks and cool settings. Author — Irene Flores.
Year 2 — What you wear (and how you wear it) reveals as much about you as what you say and do. The same goes for the characters you create. This book helps you visualize what's in your characters' closets — from T-shirts and sleepwear to work clothes and school uniforms — giving you a wardrobe full of options for dressing your characters with style and personality. Authors — Irene Flores and Krisanne McSpadden.
