It doesn’t matter if you prefer drawing traditionally or digitally because both methods are welcome here!

With in-depth what-to-use and how-to guides at the front of the book, the tutorials are divided evenly between traditional and digital. Spanning from simple to advanced, each focuses on honing an area of drawing, such as basic body shapes, shading, and coloring. Say goodbye to art books that don’t explain what they’re doing and pick up this one today for detailed, easy-to-follow lessons.

Including all-new material, these 20 step-by-step tutorials will have you nailing that distinct anime style in an array of mediums, including:

  • Pencil drawing
  • Inking line art
  • Shading with colored pencils
  • Coloring with markers and watercolors
