Synopsis

Chibis, Mascots, and More covers the popular genre of Chibis--tiny, highly expressive characters and their faithful but volatile friends. With lessons on the body construction, expressions, and character types that are unique to the chibi genre, as well as demonstrations that teach how to draw their critter friends, this book covers everything readers need to go from chibi fans to chibi artists. After an introduction to these elements, readers will have a chance to follow along Hart's in-depth step-by-steps, and will even be invited to draw on their own, right in the book's pages.

Excerpt

A chibi's emotions are easy to read-- just look at their facial expressions. Some chibis are happy, others are gurmpy, and some are furious! Just because they're small doesn't mean that they don't have BIG expressions, or even bigger reactions. In fact, chibi expressions are so over-the-top that they are downright hilarious! They react on a much, much bigger scale than regular full-sized characters. It's funny to see huge emotions coming from such tiny characters!
Let's compare the standard expressions of regular-size manga characters with their chibi counterparts. You'll see that the chibi face is distorted and elastic-- stretching way beyond what's normal. The key to chibi expressions is to make them big, broad, and highly exaggerated.
