However I realized that it would be a waste for it to just sit on a shelf with no one to read it, so I decided to post it here so that it could be of use to someone.
The book covers points such as: materials used, manga genres, character sheets, scripting and the process of drawing a manga.
To be honest, I'm self-taught and while I did purchase some of these types of books with the hope they would help when I first started drawing anime, I ended up not using them, didn't find them very helpful, and I haven't used them since I bought them many years ago. Instead, I relied on my own ability to draw, perceive, and render and I ended up learning more on my own than from what a book suggested. Having said that however, this is still an essential collection of information that you have, even if just for the materials you'll need, and the tips on how to make it successful; again, its more than can be said for alot of the 'pro' books.
I hope your project was successful, because it should be set apart from the slew of books that are currently on the market and sold as "how to" when they're really just saying "Here, I did it, now you do it". Your book takes the time to ease people through it, and I would hope that it would help people.
I noticed that a lot of books tried to teach the manga 'style', where they just draw characters, instead of how to tell a story. So I made that one of my priorities.
