This how-to book was fantastic. It helped me bunches with practicing my drawing skills at manga. I do wish there were more detailed steps on how to draw some of the parts of the character but it was still a good book with few steps. There were tons of examples of manga girls and lots of ideas for setting and what the plot could be. Overall just a fantastic gift I received for my birthday! (Thanks Abby)
