Then, practice inspirational prompts on coloring, composition and creativity to inspire endless story ideas. Use symbolism, mood and accessories to draw fantastic or realistic scenes. Use both traditional and digital coloring techniques to find your own engaging manga style.

More than 30 step-by-step tutorials teach you:

The basics of human anatomy and manga-specific proportions
The fundamentals of coloring skin tones, clothing and backgrounds with markers, watercolor and digital enhancements
Compelling character ideas, like Gijinkas–cute personifications of food, nature and objects
