Review : Not bad if….
…you’re looking to depict your characters primarily in one set of pants, a skirt, one loose shirt and a leather jacket…and only if they’re female. I bought this book thinking it had more information on how to draw clothing in general (folds, drapes, wrinkles) but the book only very lightly touches on that subject for about two pages in the beginning of the book. It’s predominantly a "pose file" and there are other much better pose file books you can find.
A lot of the "How to Draw Manga" books seem to assume you’re already an artist of some skill and training, so this book is definitely not for beginners. If you’re the type that can learn by sight alone, by all means, give it a try. Otehrwise I’d suggest going with a more basic instructional.
