Summary

Learn how to create beautiful manga art from pencil sketch to finished painting, with this comprehensive guide.    As the popularity of Manga art continues to soar, manga and comic book artist Lisa Santrau shows beginners how to create subtle and beautiful manga pictures using pencil and watercolors—the simplest of art materials. Lisa explains the materials and tools needed and then explores the fundamentals of how to draw manga—from color theory and breaking down drawings into basic shapes, to body proportions and faces for both classic manga and chibi manga figures.   You will learn how to sketch, how to create depth in your work with shading, and a range of watercolor techniques including washes, wet-on-wet and layering, as well as special techniques involving masking fluid and an innovative “film” technique for creating texture and patterns. The exercises that follow the basics explore a wide range of techniques including manga poses, hair and eyes, then learn about backgrounds, textures, gradients and more.    Finally, there are twelve step-by-step painting projects to perfect your manga art skills, with downloadable templates if you want to skip the drawing and get straight to the painting. The projects are varied and fun, and comprise:    Sweet chibi girl on a slice of cake, using the dry technique  Fresh steampunk chibis against a bright background, using the wet-on-wet technique  Chibi sorcerer’s apprentice in a flying teacup, with a galaxy background  Chibi Harry, aka a world-famous wizard, teaching you character design  Young girl framed by a romantic floral design, using a monochrome palette  Sailor boy in a symbolic sun circle, created with masking fluid  Girl in a kimono backlit by a window with flowers, using the white of the paper  Historical heroine in a voluminous ballgown, using the film technique  Melancholic schoolgirl against a fluorescent background, again with the film technique  Silhouette in the evening sunset, using the wet-on-wet technique  Food overload boy in the land of plenty, featuring surface textures  Girl’s face with expressive eyes, exploring cool versus warm colors    This easy-to-follow book by the creator of the popular Mechanical Princess comics, contains all you need to successfully paint your own watercolor manga art.

    Personal branding is basically the way you market yourself to the world. Your personal brand is what other people think of you. In some ways it's outside your control, but you obviously have some influence over it.    Personal branding is unavoidable. As others interact with you, they'll automatically form mental associations that connect you with certain labels, often within the first few seconds. You can't avoid being labeled...

    'NBC University Theater’ initially started in Chicago with a remit to bring adaptations of classic novels, usually Anglo-American, to a radio audience.   
     
    Additionally, if listeners signed up they received college credit to a radio-assisted correspondence course.  A study guide, The Handbook of the World's Great Novels, was available for 25 cents.   
     
    In its later years it also included short stories and plays and went on to win the distinguished Peabody award. 
     
    Unlike many other radio shows University Theatre did not pursue the glamourous stars for its productions but instead relied on excellent distillations of the novels and first class acting alongside high production values. 
     
    But now its time to enjoy these timeless novels. Let’s begin.
