It doesn’t take an artist to learn how to draw – not when you’ve got drawing books that give you step-by-step instructions on how to put pencil to paper and make your favourite characters come to life! Check out our review of books that teach you how to draw Star Wars The Clone Wars, Marvel Heroes, Manga Characters and Bakugan Battle Brawlers!

Klutz: Draw Star Wars The Clone Wars

The art of drawing like a Jedi Master is yours, thanks to this hands-on book of drawing tips and techniques. Learn to draw 20 different Clone Wars characters including C-3PO, Obi-Wan Kenobi and General Grievous. Everything you need is included: nine sheets tracing vellum, black marker, three double-tipped metallic-coloured pencils, mechanical pencil and eraser. Klutz editors walk you through basic shapes toward finished, detailed drawings. You even get practice space and translucent overlays to help with initial tracings in this book. May the skills be with you.

Klutz: Draw The Marvel Heroes

No matter how artistically challenged you are, this Klutz book can teach you to draw comic characters just like the pros do … or at least similar to how the pros do. Spiral-bound and full-color with pages made of light card rather than paper, this book comes complete with an attached zip-lock pencil case holding a pencil and four felt pens. All you need is a pencil-sharpener! The book starts with the basics, getting you to trace the outline of pre-drawn art, then it gets you drawing stick figures, adding pipes, shading, muscles, etc. The pace is nice and slow, the writing and explanations are clear and the examples are helpful. To make life simple, when they want you to do tracing, they bind a sheet of tracing paper right into the book – so there's no excuse for not drawing RIGHT NOW!

The Manga Artist’s Workbook: Easy-To-Follow Lessons For Creating Your Own Characters

 

You too can master the basics of the most popular style of cartooning with The Manga Artist's Workbook by Christopher Hart, who is an old hand at the field of art instruction. You'll learn the basic proportions of the manga face and figure, how to draw those large sparkling eyes and how to create hairstyles and costumes that make each character unique. A sketchbook and art tutorial rolled into one portable journal, this workbook contains tracing paper, blank practice pages and exercise to help you become a true manga master.

Drawing Manga: Animals, Chibis, And Other Adorable Creatures

 

The world of manga is filled with strange creatures and adorable sidekicks. Just about every manga hero and heroine has an animal mascot, and all the most popular ones have a cute "chibi" form. This book teaches you how to create the funny critters that populate girls' manga and the more gritty, gothic creatures found in boys' manga. It starts with the basics of creating manga-style characters, everything from drawing heads and faces to eyes and expressions, to creating incredibly cute chibis. Part two features a reference material on the mythological and real animals that have shaped Japanese artwork and stories. The last section has step-by-step demos on using computer programs to create manga art and comics. So whether you're just starting out and want to draw a cute, simple mascot, would like to try something more complex like an Asian dragon or are ready to create your own otherworldly adventure, this book has something for you no matter what your skill level.

Create & Trace: Bakugan Battle Brawlers

 

Want to get in on all the action of a Bakugan Brawl? All you need is this book and a pencil. Inside you'll find great pictures and tracing paper to use as you create your own Bakugan brawls! So grab a pencil, pick your Bakugan, and start tracing and creating!
