    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.

    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).
