Drawing Manga

Art is a favorite subject in our household.  And, lately we've been exploring drawing cartoons.  We've never read much manga, but the art work is very interesting.  My 9 year-old son discovered a great series of books that give excellent directions on how to draw manga characters.  They are by Christopher Hart.

The first one he discovered was the Kids Draw Manga Fantasy book pictured on the left.  He was excited that his finished work looked like the pictures in the book!  That is always so encouraging, isn't it?

Then, he wanted more books, and he specifically asked for Christopher Hart.  So, we picked up a few more that were even more direct with their instructions.  They included the Xtreme Art titles Draw Manga, Draw Mini Manga and Draw Manga Monsters.
