Product Description

Expressive eyes, oversized heads and doll-like cuteness--chibi are beloved in the world of manga

Beginner's Guide to Drawing Manga Chibi Girls shows artists of all ages and abilities how to create their own kawaii characters in six, easy-to-follow lessons. Step-by-step instructions walk you through the basics every aspiring artist needs to learn, like body proportions and facial expressions. Once you've mastered those, learn how to add different hats, hairstyles and costumes to your chibi girls or pose them in fun positions--from jumping for joy to hugging a friend.

This all-in-one guide includes everything you need to start drawing these adorably exaggerated manga characters:

  • Photo-illustrated tutorials let you look over the authors' shoulders as they create original chibi characters from scratch, right before your eyes
  • Before-and-after comparisons help you pinpoint mistakes and avoid common pitfalls
  • Step-by-step progressions that help you master a range of head-to-body ratios and create charming figures that pop off the page

Professional manga artists and chibi experts Mosoko Miyatsuki and Tsubura Kadomaru guide you through the drawing process and essential steps as your characters take shape. Follow along as they offer a trove of tips and examples, which help you to track and assess your progress. Before you know it, you'll be creating super cute chibi girls all on your own
