5.0 out of 5 stars A Sure-Fire Introduction to Colouring Comics with Photoshop March 17 2009
By John Joyce - Published on Amazon.com

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.
