"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.

for the love of god, suck it up and buy one, you can get em for THIRTEEN DOLLARS
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/se...597983-2103069 and seriousely they wont help you at all ever. Hardly like they are out of print or hard to come by.
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.
Oh wow guys thanks for the input.
I have been looking for a couple Loomis books (ebook) but couldnt find any. Well, I did find one.
and for shelling out 13.0 bucks for the book, I would if I could but I cant, hence the reason I am aksing for any help of finding them.
Nevertheless guys, thanks for the input.
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.
Jeri...that is fucking fantastic, LMAO!
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"
HAHA. That image is stellar, Jeri.

i got all the loomis books on PDF. i don't use em though. i use the burne hogarth book "dynamic figure drawing".
" we blastin' off right now!"
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 am somewhat embarrassed to admit I have a copy sitting on my shelf... oh and it did look alright back then. (it was a present...from long time ago....)
