Being someone who is interested in manga, and has dabbled a bit in the art style, I’m looking forward to reading and learning from Beginning Manga. From the previews that I’ve seen, the instructions are easy to follow. Sonia Leong teaches readers how to draw through the use of pencils, brushes, and pens, etc. It really does seem like a good instruction book to teach everything there is to know for a mangaka to start creating their own unique work.
