Interest in anime and manga—the arts of Japanese animation and comics—is exploding in the US children’s market. Pokémon, Digimon, Dragon Ball Z, and Sailor Moon are just a few of the anime phenomena delighting kids ages 4–12.
Kids Draw Anime, the eighth book in the popular Kids Draw series, is the first book specifically designed to teach kids 6–12 how to draw the popular anime style themselves. Focusing on shõjo- and shõnen-style anime, the book teaches the familiar “big eye” look, in which characters are drawn cute and young as opposed to the angular, dramatic characters of -oriented styles.
Young artists will find a complete introduction to anime style, taught with engaging text and full-color art. Dozens of fun, hands-on lessons demonstrate how to draw heads, eyes, expressions, hairstyles, the basic body, hands and shoes, good guys and bad guys, goofy characters, fantasy characters, robots, and much more. As in all Kids Draw books, each dazzling spread is easy to follow, fun to look at, and guaranteed to charm a new generation of artists!
• Anime is a multi-billion dollar industry in the US alone
• Offers age-appropriate instruction and illustration
• Continues the wildly successful Kids Draw series
