ASIN : 0823014886
Description : The ultimate guide to creating chibis!
They populate manga with chunky bodies, oversized heads, and huge expressive eyes. They’re schoolgirls and schoolboys, magical girls and mad scientists, fairies and fighter princesses, cyborgs and sci-fi secret agents, bikers and bad samurais, robots and rebel leaders. They’ve even got chubby pets and zany monster sidekicks! They’re chibis!
Excruciatingly cute, highly stylized, and beloved in all manga genres (fantasy, magical girls, shounen, anthro, sci-fi-, and more), without them, manga would barely exist. And now you can learn, step by step, how to draw virtually every chibi out there, how to “chibify” ordinary manga characters—and how to invent your very own designs! Covering facial expressions, those iconic manga eyes, costumes, character interaction, and story settings, Manga for the Beginner Chibis has it all.

Review : A jem of a book
Flipping through the book, made us fall in love with the Chibis. Book is filled with dozens (hundreds?) of different Chibis accompanied with a description of what’s unique to the specific character and of course the easy steps to bring out this uniqueness.
The author has an amazing ability to point out the uniqueness of the each Chibi Character and demonstrate in just a few easy steps how to make it happen on the paper.
These techniques, tips and the way Hart views the a cartoon character constructive not only for Chibis but with all Manga characters.
In short, this is a magnificent book.
