A Sure-Fire Introduction to Colouring Comics with Photoshop March 17 2009
By John Joyce - Published on
Format: Paperback

Unlike other books, that describe the process of colouring a cartoon or comic book illustration using Photoshop using text and pictures, this manual gives you an outline illustration to download from a website and then guides you through the process of colouring it through a series of step-by-step illustrated instructions (all 275 of them!!).

You won't get a lot of (if any) background descriptions of Photoshop or its capabilites. What you will get is a complete practical tutorial on how to use Photoshop for one specific application - the colouring of Manga comics. They say that the best way to learn how to do something is to do it! And that is exactly what this manual provides.

If that is what you want (and I did) then I thoroughly recommend this book as being unique in this area.
Amazing book! I want more like it! March 22 2012

I actually tried to make it from page one till the end and I did it!! It's so beautiful and professional! I actually surprised myself! I wish there are more books like this one!

From my copy:

* No drawing skills required! Download or scan the line art provided and start work straight away.
* Step-by-step instructions mean that even the Photoshop novice will not get lost or confused.
* Create a professional-looking and high quality image.
* The next best thing to having a mangaka [professional manga artist] teaching you at home.
* Suitable for all age groups.

Every manga fan needs Draw Manga Step-by-Step on Your Computer - the most detailed book on creating digital manga, ever.
