Westport, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/25/2013 -- Christopher Hart, bestselling author of dozens of well-known “how to draw” books is now offering several of the most popular titles in his blockbuster Manga Mania series on sale for a limited time at Amazon.com, including Manga Mania Shoujo: How to Draw the Charming and Romantic Characters of Japanese Comics.
“It is my intention that you are not only exposed to the rich variety of characters and sub genres that make up Shoujo, but that you develop real skill in drawing manga as a result of reading this book,” says Chris Hart.
Shoujo manga is one of the most popular styles of Japanese animation, featuring the most recognizable characters in manga-seen everywhere in comics, books, toys, television, film, and video. Since shoujo is based on stories that focus on peer pressure, romance, and friendship, it initially appealed to young females, but today more and more boys are attracted to this genre, which inevitably includes young male heroes.
Best-selling author Christopher Hart once again reveals the secrets and techniques that go into building all the basics of the shoujo style-the big eyes, the miniscule noses, and the cute or angst-ridden expressions. Teen body language is explored. In addition, artists learn to draw teen clothing styles and also different character types, from school kids and cuddly creatures and cute pets to heartthrobs.
“If you Shoujo, and you like to draw, you can't miss by picking up this book,” explains Chris Hart, “the keys to drawing the most famous manga genre are now at your fingertips. Let's get started!”
