My name is Christopher Hart, and I am a professional artist and author of many popular, how-to-draw manga books.
This instructional pad is an exciting, new way to learn how to draw manga. It features the high-quality paper you've come to expect from Strathmore, as well as my drawing techniques, which are easy to follow - and fun! You'll learn to draw the most popular manga character types including schoolgirls and schoolboys, chibis, adorable monsters, even action fighters and cat girls!
The first 4 pages of the pad feature the basics of manga drawing, followed by 30 step-by-step lessons with space to draw each character. We've even included 8 blank sheets in the back of the pad for practice and creating your own manga characters.
To help you get the most from this instructional art pad, I've developed video tutorials for 10 of the lessons. You can watch me draw these manga characters online. Just look for this icon: in the table of contents to identify lessons with an accompanying video. Go to videos.
