Amazon Description:

Cartoonists, art students, anime artists, and computer game designers will find inspiration for creating fantastic female characters in this heavily illustrated book. The author begins with several basic but alluring babes to get readers started—Schoolgirl, Princess, Geisha, Cat Girl, French Maid, Gothic, and others. He presents each of them in a full-page, fully rendered illustration, accompanied by working sketches, character sheets, and detailed technical instruction on how to recreate the design. He explains all techniques for both traditional and digital media, from creating black-and-white line art to adding color and screen-tone effects. Students will also find advice on creating a useful work space for themselves, choosing and using their tools and materials, developing drawing and painting techniques, working digitally, and learning to render correct proportions, scale, skin tone, and foreshortening in figure drawing. Here are femmes fatales, bookish maidens, punk and hip-hop babes, and even grandma and teacher types. More than 300 full-color, highly instructive, often provocative illustrations.
