He supplies templates for each; an extensive array of "menus" of head and body types, outfits, and accessories; and detailed, accessible, step-by-step demonstrations and drawing exercises. Plus, Hart showcases some of the best anime artists in the world for this title--including Inma R., Tabby Kink, Ayame Shiroi, Euro Pinku, and Tina Francisco. Its the guide every would-be anime artist has been looking for.
