Y’know, there’s a shelf in my studio that creaks under the weight of a veritable library of how-to-draw books. From Andrew Loomis and Burne Hogarth to Boris Vallejo and Rich Buckler, I got ’em all. However, I’m now going to add yet one more. Colleen Doran, the artist on JM Straczynski’s Book of Lost Souls for Marvel, and the creator of A Distant Soil has produced an all-new how-to book on manga techniques. While I can’t claim to be the world’s biggest manga fan, I’m sure there’ll be a lot of good advice to be found in these pages.
