Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful This is a wonderful book that is great for kicking-starting your talents in character creations! It is absolutely helpful when you are having an 'artblock' in creating characters as the grids offer endless combinations of character traits! The illustrations are nice too~lots of styles for inspiration =)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best How to Manga book- for the advanced. Beware little nubies- this book is not for the beginners of the manga arts. Theres no how to draw an eye, nose, hair- but something much more detailed. It's a beautiful character creation theory, using grids and whatnot to create amazing characters. The visuals and examples are amazing. There was not a picture in this book I did not like. I love it. You should too.
