When I saw this book offered up on Netgalley, I knew I needed to take a chance on it. I've wanted to learn how to draw for quite some time. The Chibi style is one of my favorite styles. I LOVE anything chibi, so I figured this one would be great to help me explore if this is a style I would enjoy drawing in.

The book itself is outlined well, but I do wish it had more instructions. The body instructions were helpful, but I would have loved to have more detailed instructions on drawing the outfits

I love to draw and doodle. Despite not being super advanced and skillful yet, I find drawing very relaxing most of the time. This is an accessible guide full of techniques and cheerful upbeat

When it is snowy and cold outside (and my car is buried under 2ft of ❄ ), superspeed readers like me can read 250+ pages/hour, so yes, I have read the book and many more today. LOL

I requested and received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley, the publisher and the author in exchange for an honest review.

From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸.

I requested and received an advanced reading copy of this book from NetGalley and Shadow Mountain Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

I would not call this a step-by-step guide for learning to draw manga chibi characters, as most drawings only had a few steps. Even though it was not step-by-step, I did find this book helpful. I like the explanation of what makes it a chibi, they are basic instructions, but it gives you a good idea of how to turn any character into a chibi.

I really like

At the same time I got this book, I got another by the authors (You Can Daw Manga Chibis). I would rate them both 4 stars but this one is more like 4 1/2 stars while the other book is a low 4.

This book is far more useful as it contains the basic info in that other book + info for chibi animals too. Neither is what I would call step by step, as the projects tend to have 2-4 steps for the whole figures and those tend to be the only things in the book with step-by-step instructions. Most of the

Thank you NetGalley for providing me a copy in exchange for an honest review.
I'm such a bad artist, I had trouble even drawing the head of the Chibi character, leading me to get frustrated with myself. However, I believe that someone with patience and passion for drawing could really benefit from this book because the steps to drawing each character are simple, easy, and clearly outlined in this book.

While I'm not sure you can really call this step by step, it is a delightful, fun, entertaining way to pass time and learn to draw Chibi!! I love Chibi and everything to do with chibi. This goes beyond just chibi characters which is really nice and includes furniture, pets, clothing, props, scenes, and templates so you can make your own chibi. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

This was an easy to use and read book about drawing some very cute critters. My 9 year old and 15 year old had a fun time doing these step by step drawings. And of course with practice you can even make them your own! Great for the beginner and moderate drawler

I enjoyed this one I have looked at and tried to follow a lot of different art books before none were as easy to follow as this one. I love how all of the different components are broken down and shown even the different emotions. The beginning of the book also goes over some materials and drawing basics which I think is very useful. I cant wait to draw more of these cute chibi characters and settings. ...more

My daughter is very into learning how to draw. She asked me to request the Chibi You Can Draw Books. I thought the book really broke things down for children who are learning how to draw. The technique is more complicated, and I would not recommend this You Can Draw Book for younger children.

The best-fit age group for this You Can Draw Series would be upper elementary and middle school. The characters are complex, and the instructions require a lot of investigation/inferencing. There are many

Absolutely fantastic book if you love Manga characters you will love the Chibi characters. They are absolutely so cute everything that makes a Manga character awesome is even more amazing as a Chibi. This insightful book is very detailed and informative as well as having beautiful artwork. I cant say enough about it. This is a must have book for anyone who enjoys Manga art. I received this book from NetGalley for an honest review. ...more
