These artists goes through tips on their colouring process with their tools: markers, coloured ink, water colour, acrylic paint and digital colouring.

These are step by step tutorials with detailed captions. Right at the end is a gallery containing illustrations created from a variety of medium.

These are from other manga artists. This book is a great book for beginners. Experts might learn something new too, especially on exploring new colouring techniques and medium. If you like this book, check out other Comickers books too. This review was first published on parkablogs. There are more pictures and videos on my blog. It includes information about painting materials like: markers, oil paint, acrylic paint, watercolour paints, coloured pencil and more.

On the next two pages, the book talks about "Overlaying Colours", "Colour Gradiation", different types of brushes and paper. These pages This is a beautiful book. These pages are very informative too, and will definately be some use to you if you are starting out. These pages are very nice, albeit a little complicated for the absolute beginner. Then, the book talks about markers, which is, unlike the other two pages, very simple to understand.

The pages about her work are gorgeous, but I would not think they would be be any use to a beginner, as her work is vey advanced! Saya uses Copics, too.

The book then talks about Coloured Ink, which, again, is very simple, and then introduces Hiroki Mafuyu, a wonderful artist. The book then shows Hot New Talent, which is great, and then a "Story Manga", which personally, I do not see the point of, as it is all in Japanese, and the artwork is quite simple, most of the page is taken up by the Japanese writing.

The book then finishes on the "Master Artists" gallery, which includes some beautiful artwork in. I would recommend this book to a little more advanced manga artists though, becuase the book is lovely, and I will be buying the other books in this series, becuase I perosnally loved this book.

Due to this I discovered the name of an artist whose work I have loved for years, Range Murata. I loved the illustrations and was inspired to begin work on a comic I have had floating in my brain space for years.

I enjoyed the interviews and the art from newer rising stars towards the end. I had a psychological epiphany which had already been in the back of my brain. Art is quite subjective, Quite good, not particularly in the notion of information about art but more in the vain of an artbook. Art is quite subjective, one may love a piece while another struggles to find beauty in it.

This should be common sense but it did not click until a student a few years under me made comments about sexualization of characters in certain illustrations. This prompted an entire discussion upon the freedom of speech and the inherently mental side of sexualization especially towards images which are simply showcasing the human form. I realized that I should do what I am capable of and strife for greater heights instead of sulking about not being able to portray something in the ideal fashion even after countless hours of work only to throw away my work.

I do not consider art to be a primary profession of mine as carpotunnel highly limits the time which I can actually draw, but I can still say that this is one of the most gratifying art related books I have checked out from my library To view it, click here.
