Creating Manga Characters Out On 23 July

UK manga creators Sweatdrop Studios have a new book coming out on Monday 23 July called Creating Manga Characters

Written and illustrated by five artists from Sweatdrop Studios, the book starts with drawing in the manga style before going on to examine the process of character creation and how to use your character to express different emotions and expressions.

Five original characters help to explain every topic, from character traits and personalities to the individual details vital to make your creation stand out from the pack.

Additional topics cover how to craft supporting characters to compliment your lead and world-building.

Subjects covered include:
- Anatomy and expression
- Character roles and how to look beyond them
- Creating a setting, side characters and mascots
- Examples of comic pages from thumbnails to completion

The book is 144 pages long with 162 colour illustrations to demonstrate the lessons.

Creating Manga Characters is published by the Crowood Press and you can order the book on their website.
