you sure seem happy about that. if he was really bothering you that much, you could've just ignored him. you flinging shit back didn't help either. oh, and after reading one of your posts from earlier in this thread, i wouldn't recommend ANYTHING by christopher hart. just so everyone knows.

anyway, shin, i've seen a lot of improvement just over the course of this thread. keep up the good work!

Why? That specific book is a newer one which is actually more like Japanese manga rather then American manga.

I endorse this comment.

Christopher Hart is a fail.

Nice work Shin! When I'm on sometime in the week you have to show me all your sketches.

Probably because he is one of those western artists that jumped the "how-to-draw-manga" band-wagon when anime and manga became popular to get good cash for little effort.

The thing with how-to-draw-manga books is that they teach totally wrong approach to drawing. They teach how to mimic some style but never tell why stuff looks like that. What is some expression based on, why there should be wrinkles where they are and so forth.
Why don't we share a solitude? Let's travel alone, together.

Well, the books besides the one I have are more like American manga. I never really encountered that in any books I have. The book I have actually doesn't even really tell you how to draw everything, just has stuff and has some how to draw X kind of characters, like some shounin characters, classic manga characters, anthros, etc. No real how to draw since it's "For the Beginner" it even says that specifically in the book. My other book actually has a whole little thing on wrinkles.

i'm sure he's better than a lot of people. that doesn't mean that he's good. but if his book helps you, by all means, use it. but personally i've read some of his books, and they didn't do shit for me.

Did you read the specific book I was talking about? Also, if they didn't teach you anything maybe it's cause you already learned that specific thing?

no, i haven't read that specific one, but i've read some others of his and didn't care much for them. and i don't care much for his art style in general. but to be fair, i suppose i could try taking a look at this one...if i ever see it in a bookstore, that is. i'm certainly not going to order it after i didn't like his other stuff.
