Renowned manga artist and comics creator Camilla d'Errico's beginner's guide to drawing her signature Japanese-style characters.

From comics to video games to contemporary fine art, the beautiful, wide-eyed-girl look of shoujo manga has infiltrated pop culture, and no artist's work today better exemplifies this trend than Camilla d'Errico's.  In her first instructional guide, d'Errico reveals  techniques for creating her emotive yet playful manga characters, with lessons on drawing basic body construction, capturing action, and creating animals, chibis, and mascots.

Plus, she gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at her character design process, pointers on creating their own comics, and prompts for finishing her drawings. Pop Manga is both a celebration of creativity and an indispensible guide that is sure to appeal to manga diehards and aspiring artists alike.

About the Author:

CAMILLA D'ERRICO is a product of her early addiction to Saturday morning cartoons, comics, and manga. Her client list includes Dark Horse Comics, Image Comics, Random House, Tokyopop, Hasbro, Disney, Sanrio, and Neil Gaiman. Her own characters and properties, Tanpopo and the Helmetgirls, are international sensations, and her emotive paintings have propelled her to the top of the ranks of the New Contemporary art movement. In 2011 she was nominated for the Joe Shuster Award and the Will Eisner Award--the two most prestigious awards in comics. D'Errico lives in Vancouver. Visit her at www.CamillaDerrico.com.

STEPHEN W. MARTIN is a screenwriter and story editor in film and comics. He lives in Vancouver.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"Whenever I’m creating a new character, I always start with the eyes. You get all the emotion from the eyes; they are the gateway to the character’s soul. Eyes are the manga artist’s catchphrase or calling card. Next time you’re reading Naruto, Chobits, or even Vampire Knight—some of my personal favorites—take a look at the characters’ eyes and notice the differences in the style and execution. Each manga artist has a signature way of drawing eyes. My eyes are “circle eyes,” and that’s the style you’re about to learn. But I want you to take the steps I teach you and run with them, altering them to match your own style and your own characters’ personalities. Remember, it’s your signature, so have fun!"
