Manga Matrix presents an easy grid method for mastering manga, an increasingly popular comic style. Using this unique Japanese system, artists can plot and cross-section elements on a matrix diagram to create an infinite number of original characters, creatures, and multiformed beasts.

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.
