Amazing characters are what bring manga to life, and this guide-created in cooperation with COPIC-gives illustrated, easy-to-understand, and thorough instructions on how to create characters that jump off the page. As manga artists around the world know, COPIC markers are not simply for "coloring" . . . their blendability and color range mean amazing realism and special effects. For any of the five styles of manga (shonen, shojo, seinen, josei, and kodomomuke), expert artist Midorihana teaches 14 key techniques, plus in-depth instruction on the all-important details like fabric bulges, hair flow and shine, gloves, and eye expressions. Also features dozens of sample patterns to copy or modify. Techniques include gradation and shading; using white ink; color order; how to think about shadows; how to draw key elements like eyes, lips, and patterned items; how to create heaviness; and more. Master these skills in a hands-on way with the book's genius approach of guiding you through creating seven professionally drawn character scenes: "Demise of the Crown," "Ya! Summer Vacation," "Miss Blue," "Pretty Girl Who Works at Japanese Sweets Shop," "Trainee Succubus," "Evening Walk Time," and "Rosa the Maid." Each scene is shown from line drawing through coloring stages to completion. Also featured: a complete reference chart of all 358 COPIC Sketch and Ciao colors. Make your art come to life with this tool and with the companion book from Midorihana, How to Render Eye-Catching Textures with COPIC Markers.;
