Drawing Anime from Simple Shapes: Character Design Basics for All Ages (Paperback)
Leading art instructor and bestselling author Christopher Hart teaches tweens and teens how to draw cool anime characters. When you start with simple shapes, who knows where you might end up? They're key to drawing just about anything--including full-fledged, expressive anime characters. This book, especially geared to the talents of teens and tweens, is loaded with more than 100 step-by-step demonstrations created by Chris Hart. He explains how to draw everything you need to make this popular genre come alive, from dramatic hairstyles to a comically bad kitty that's spilled the milk: faces, figures, emotions, gestures, poses, fashions, and more.
