The publisher’s description is:

Free your inner drama queen by drawing fantastic fashion shojo manga (Japanese-style girls’ comics) with this resource that teaches you how to depict young characters with style using different elements for exciting results. Create fabulous shojo manga clothing and characters with different looks, primarily in pencil and ink. Loaded with techniques and tips from an exciting young artist, this book demonstrates the Japanese comic-book practices of stylized proportions, clean lines and contrast between black and white (manga is usually published in black and white), with some finished art in colour. It covers basic techniques; heads, including eyes, noses, mouths, ears, skin tones, makeup, hair and facial expressions; bodies; clothes and accessories; different looks; as well as, step-by-step chapters on putting it all together to create specific looks and cool settings.
