Whether your character is jumping for joy, kicking and grappling with an opponent, or fighting to the death with sword in hand, this book provides all the essential techniques to draw more lifelike action figures in the classic Japanese manga style.

Whether your character is jumping for joy, kicking and grappling with an opponent, or fighting to the death with sword in hand, this book provides all the essential techniques to draw more lifelike action figures in the classic Japanese manga style. The comprehensive introduction first shows the reader the physical anatomy of male vs. female figures and gives important tips on proportions, perspective and small but often-overlooked details such as the relative differences between male and female hands, fingers and feet.

Each chapter provides professional tips on the use of colour and shading for greater realism. Special sections contain information and tips on particular topics of interest, such as how to draw clothes, hair and facial expressions or how to create special effects. At the end of the book, an actual 6-page comic strip gives readers the opportunity to practice what they have learned by filling in the missing elements.
