A guide to drawing Japanese animation. Step-by-step, Christopher Hart demonstrates how to draw anime characters from a wide selection of styles: high-tech cyber punks who live in the world of the future; teen characters with troubled relationships at school, home and on the street; and mighty monsters, fantasy warriors and giant robots. Aspiring animators will find chapters on anime's special effects; the role of storyboarding in anime; sketching and the art of character design; and a mini-course in perspective. Examples and exercises are included. The book concludes with interviews with Scott Frazier, an American anime director working in Japan, and Mahiro Meada, a Japanese animation director.
