Following the success of Japanese Comickers, this book profiles twelve Japanese and Korean artists working in anime and manga -- all of whom eagerly discuss their work and share their thoughts on this incredible and increasingly popular genre. Some featured artists use digital tools to create their work, while others work in more traditional media.

Each of the twelve profiles in Japanese Comickers 2 includes a brief biography of the artist, a visual of his or her most representative work, and a pictorial gallery with detailed explanations of their techniques. Also included is information on the materials used by each artist and a glossary of terms unique to manga and anime.

A showcase of the cutting-edge vanguard of anime and manga illustration and a valuable how-to guide for aspiring artists, Japanese Comickers 2 is an essential addition to every fan's library.

Comickers Magazine is the authoritative guide to the Japanese comics trade and provides unique information on the worlds of manga, anime, illustration, games, fashion and cinema.Published quarterly in Japan by Bijutsu Shuppan, Comickers Magazine enjoys a circulation of approximately 120,000 copies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful artwork from an array of Japanese artists. I have both this book and the first book in this series, they are both wonderful books with beautiful artwork inside. They not only show you artwork of different artist which are great sources of inspiration but they also include the artists age (if provided) as well as the materials and operating system they use. Each artist has a step to step guide on how they created the first piece that is shown of theirs in the book. This is a perfect book for any art book collector. Also who says that anime/manga all look the same?! Show them wrong by all the different styles and approaches in this book.
