It is clear throughout this wonderful book, that Christopher Hart really understands and appreciates Manga. The joy comes through in every page. He covers it all - different action poses, athletic types, various scenes and manga professions :-) You will be entertained for hours and yes, your drawing "chops" will increase exponentially!

I think Chris Hart did a really good job on this book. The book provides the reader excellent step by step sketches from start to end. I personally don't get caught up in the "Magna Authentication" controversy by judging someone else's work as too American or westernized. What is important, if you are drawing Magna and your work appears like magna then your work is in the spirit of the art and that is good enough for me. I think Chris Hart does a wonderful job here showing the reader the magna style in the form of cute and sexy females. Some of my favorites are found on pages 138 and 139 and all the adventure girls on pages 53 through 65.

The book details instructions for drawing human form in magna and specifics like eyes and hair. Chris also delves into different styles or oontexts such as Kodomo, Princess Power, Pretty Tomboys to name of few. I recommend it for any artist desiring to draw magna.

Chris Hart is very talented and it shows in his artwork. Most manga books I've saw at the library are low-quality looking compared to his. I have two of his manga books and hope to get many more. 5 stars for Chris Hart! If you are new to manga I suggest you use his books. He is very informative and has a step by step on almost every page. I am a beginner at drawing manga and I hope to become professional thanks to the inspiration this book gave me. Try this manga book!
