The 256 page book is packed with step-by-step tutorials on every aspect of manga drawing, basing the instructions around traditional sketching and colouring techniques, and including digital tools for rendering and finishing artwork

The author is highly accomplished professional artist Sonia Leong, who has created 28 two-minute video demonstrations designed to link specifically to the content of this book.
