Drawing Cute Manga Chibi walks you through the steps needed to draw these adorable characters, while sidebars offer expert tips, pointers on the pitfalls to avoid, and how to use details to bring your drawings to life.

In this book, readers will learn how to imagine and express:
  • Facial expressions
  • Body posture
  • Hairstyles
  • Different ages
  • Poses
  • Bringing your characters into full-color
  • Different character identities—from a punk rocker to a samurai
