I've always been a huge fan of cutesy illustrations so I've always loved Manga. Christopher Hart's latest how-to-draw book, Doodletopia: Manga, teaches you how to draw those adorable, big and shiny-eyed manga characters. While this book teaches you how to draw the usual manga man/boy and woman/girl, I really enjoyed the illustrations of the chibis and cutesy animals more. I specifically got this manga book for my daughter, and together, we both drew many of the insanely cute animals. We both love the pig: chubby cuteness, the chibis, curl girl, yummy treats, and tiny vampire. Every illustration in the book is just like the description, it's SUPER-CUTE. I plan to give a copy of this book to my daughter's friend who loves to draw.
The contents in the book are as follows:
2. Finish the Heads and Faces
3. Make Hilarious Expressions with Silly Selfies
4. Draw Your Own Versions of Manga Characters
5. Dress the Chibis from Around the World
6. Draw the Super-Cute Animals
7. Add a Team Leader
8. Have Fun with Emoticons
9. Stuff the Pages with Doodles
10. Master the Manga Mazes
11. Complete the Scenes
12. Create Manga Crafts
13. Doodle Free-For-All
