    Hey everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone would where I could get how to draw anime or manga ebooks to downlod for free? or even PDF file format would be fine as well.

    Any of them would be fine, especially any that was by Ben Dunn.


    Thank guys.

    "How to draw manga" books are an abomination to the industry.

    I sugest you to pick up a "real" human anatomy book and keep practicing from your favorite japanese animation series and/or comic book.

    Is far more effective, even if you want to draw in that particular way.

    Ask around for Loomis PDF books or search this seccion of the forum using the word "loomis".

    Good luck to you....and don´t let an evil asshole take your money to make you take 3 steps backward.

    I have nothing against manga as a medium but all How-to books on the subject are going to do is teach you how to conform to someone elses templates and formulas. Untill you learn how to actually draw the human form before stylistically distorting it, it'll just be an arrangement of parts you've seen drawings other artists have made.

    Seriously, if you want to draw manga, getting a copy of "Even a Monkey can Draw Manga" is worth 10 of those "How To" books.

    ANime Manga ebooks or PDF format

    Of course the same goes for too many american comics as well. It's only a matter of time till Rob Liefeld Releases "How to get insanely rich off of someone elses story and drawing"

    How to draw manga books should burn, and also that one "digital manga workshop" book.... oh god it disgusts me just like Lindsays art.

    I suggest save up a bit more and get an artbook by Ito Noizi - GUREN, or Kozue Amano Ilustration works (alpha and stella).

    I have a decent amount of background when it comes to art and such. I just wanted to know the best way to approach of changing up an art style.

    Once again thanks everyone, very much helpful.

    well, how to draw manga can't help you with that.A personal style comes with time and mileage, actually.I can tell you cause i have one of those damn books too, and it didn't help at all.Keep your loomis and hogart books close tho.They teach the basics without trying to pollute personal style (and that is what you should be looking for).

    BTW, nice nickname

    ciao

    Why Buy Those Over-Priced Ebooks?

    Have you purchased any high priced ebooks recently? Nowadays, there are a great many 'experts' producing fluffed up 300 page, bloated ebooks that the sell for $67 or $97 a pop.

    The vast majority of these bloated ebooks would be less than a dozen pages if you removed all the useless fluff!

    A short while ago, I downloaded an over-priced ebook about how to make $30,000 a month from Google's AdSense program. After reading nearly 200 pages, all he said is to make the AdSense ads look like they're part of your website instead of looking like ads.

    These types of ebooks are fluffed-up in order to justify the high price. If this ebook was cleaned of all the unrequired garbage, it would shrink to less than one tenth its current size, but that wouldn't sell.

    Recently, a new generation of ebooks has appeared - ebooks without all that extra baggage that's only there to make you think you're getting value. Straight and simple information, quickly explained so you can make use of it without wasting a lot of time sorting thru junk pages. Prices so low that the $97 ebook gurus might have a heart attack!

    You want cheap? How does $7 sound to you?

    Well due to the popularity of Manga and Anime there are tons of "How to draw" tutorial online....everywhere.

    Mostly the human anatomy they feature is extremely simplifies and....nubile looking (young girls and young boys with little muscle defination).

    I mean Deviant art alone has hundreds of tutorials that just focus on how th draw the Anima eye...

    It's everywhere.. check around.... Google!

    Hey if you want those Loomis PDF's, just say the word and I can send you links to the copies. I've got them uploaded on my site but due to limited bandwidth I don't have them openly available.
