    This book is really excellent! It really taught me to draw the popular style of Chibi, really well. It's a really cute book that is simple to follow. This book includes monsters, robots, sci fi and fantasy chibis, animals, children and teen chibis. When I got this book, I was a complete beginner to manga and chibi, and I think it really helped me to be a better artist. I would highly recommend this book, and I am now considering buying the Shoujo book in this series! This book is really excellent! It really taught me to draw the popular style of Chibi, really well.

    I really do love a good manga book. I have reads books by artists that I like, and some that I don't like. Boy, I'll tell you this . . . if the art isn't very good, I have a hard time enjoying the book. Everyone could use a little help with their drawing ability, well, except for Christopher Hart, it would seem. He has turned his artistic talent to teaching others to learn how to draw something he obviously loves. In this case, it is the cute, little chibi.

He has turned his artistic talent to teaching others to learn how to draw something he obviously loves. In this case, it is the cute, little chibi. Of all of Christopher Hart's instructional books on drawing, I would have to say that Manga for the Beginner: Chibis is my favorite. How can you not want to learn how to draw one of these characters? The books is choked full of beautiful color drawing, informative lessons, and a plethora of characters. There is almost too much information in this book to take in all at once. With all of the different types of chibis in this book, an aspiring artist will find plenty to try and draw. Christopher Hart is quite the artist. He is great at showing all of the things an aspiring manga artist will need to know. His writing is easy to following and extremely informative. He is the perfect manga teacher. Overall, Manga for the Beginner: Chibis is another terrific instruction book by Christopher Hart. The book is informative and anyone who picks up a copy of this book and follows the lessons within, will learn how to drawn manga chibis very well. Of course, practice will be needed to polish their new-found skill. Chalk up another winner for Christopher Hart in Manga for the Beginner: Chibis. It is a great book.

    What an amazing drawing book for those who are interesting in studying & learning chibi art. This book is so well done. Step by step instructions with tons of instruction, tips, and a slight bit of humor. All types of chibis are address and compared to teen/manga. Animals, background, robots, and fantasy chibis are shown. Clothing explanations as well as a section that shows different views for walking, running, etc...

    I really liked this book. It was an easy to follow guide to drawing chibi. I would recommend using the Manga for Beginner book before starting this. It seems to expect you to have finished that first. It is mostly characters and animals.
