Synopsis

Using step-by-step instruction on how to draw Japanese manga and anime zombies, vampires, and monsters, best-selling author Christopher Hart teaches artists how they can create their own spooky manga characters.

With the occult running rampant in today's television, movies, and other media, it's no wonder that the scary, monstrous, and dark characters of manga have become so popular. From drawing monster eyes to goth boys, Manga for the Beginner Midnight Monsters teaches artists how to draw these creepy and mysterious characters that they just can't get enough of.

Packed with expert tips on drawing:
·         Zombies
·         Vampires
·         Werewolves
·         Goths
·         Witches
·         Sorcerers
·         And so much more!

Excerpt

Zombies are fun to draw because they're just about the most stubborn characters in all of manga. Arm fallen off? No problem. She'll just keep moving forward. Legs rotted away? A mere speed bump. She'll just drag herself along the ground until she finds a human victim. Zombies always make me wonder if we humans underestimate just how good we must taste.
