Review : Nice drawing guide, some drawings inconsistant
Manga Mania Occult horror focuses on teaching the budding artist how to draw images of Occult Horror characters. Occult horror characters (according to Chris) are more mature-looking than the typical Manga Shoujo characters. The proportions are more like those used in the fashion industry.
I found this book to be pretty good. Granted, as with any Chris Hart book there are issues of drawing quality and inconsistency. Some art is quite good, others are next to useless. But the majority of the pictures were quite stunning and interesting. I would’ve liked to have seen a few more guides for drawing the faces.. Especially from different angles since the characters look a bit different from Shoujo.
Overall, though,this was an enjoyable book and a welcome addition to any library.0 Likes
