HASH(0x9e5b43e4) out of 5 stars Nice drawing guide, some drawings inconsistant Nov. 15 2007
By Serene Night - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Manga Mania Occult horror focuses on teaching the budding artist how to draw images of Occult Horror characters. Occult horror characters (according to Chris) are more mature-looking than the typical Manga Shoujo characters. The proportions are more like those used in the fashion industry.

I found this book to be pretty good. Granted, as with any Chris Hart book there are issues of drawing quality and inconsistency. Some art is quite good, others are next to useless. But the majority of the pictures were quite stunning and interesting. I would've liked to have seen a few more guides for drawing the faces.. Especially from different angles since the characters look a bit different from Shoujo.

Overall, though,this was an enjoyable book and a welcome addition to any library.

HASH(0x9e5b4630) out of 5 stars Mr. Hart does it again! Jan. 29 2008

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was so impressed with Mr. Hart's faery books that I had to pick this up and I am even more impressed with this book. The drawings are stunning and the instruction is clear and easy to follow, which allows you to get good results in a fairly short amount of time. What really makes this book useful is the different sections he has broken the drawings into. Learning to draw a really cool vamipire is one thing, but can you draw him in profile? In Victorian clothing? Can you draw his hands? What about color? Mr. Hart tackles all of these subjects and takes you through them one at a time. A little drawing experiance is helpful, but not really necessary as everything is broken down into shapes and he shows you how to fill in the details. This is a great book for anyone, kids or adults who want to learn to draw.

Christopher Hart never disappoints! He can teach the most raw beginner so much about drawing. He concentrates on showing how to draw different styles for different Manga characters.

HASH(0x9e5b48e8) out of 5 stars Love this book already, but don't know if it's very useful March 2 2008
By Belethchamien - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book. I have just bought it, and I just love all the beautiful pictures in it and I especially love the chapter on victorian fashion, since it's hard to get a book that really gives you exactly that gothic-style you're looking for. However, I'm not sure if this book will actually teach me how to draw. By copying the pictures, yes, maybe. But learning that way, I could probably learn a lot more from a book with actual fotographs of people and places, or something...anyway, to me, I think this book will mostly just be an inspiration, and a lot of nice pictures to look at. Which is not a bad thing. But it might not be what someone is looking for.
