For anyone, and I mean ANYONE, who wants to learn to draw in a Manga, I’ve heard that Manga Secrets (art-ed by Lea Hernandez) is pretty good.
And Lea’s thinking about writing a book, and self-publishing it, that would essentially be a follow-up to Manga Secrets.
In her words:
I want to do another book on drawing costuming. This is stuff lacking in almost all manga how-to. Not just how to draw clothes that look like clothes (instead shapes defined by elective slashes), but how to show a character at a glance with hair, clothes and attitude. Plus, a few stern lectures on what’s Been Done To Death.
If you’re interested, let her know. If you know people who would be, let them know.
Hell, let *everybody* know.
