Description : Manhwa—Korean for comics—is fast becoming the next big craze in Asian comics. Many fans of manga don’t realize that their favorite comics, like Priest, Ragnarock, and Island, are actually manhwa, not Japanese manga. This tutorial helps artists master the differences between manga and manhwa, including less focus on big eyes and more on expressions and personality, replacing spiky hair with a more natural look, and drawing characters that don’t typically possess magical powers but are instead fierce fighters made of flesh and blood. Artists learn through a step-by-step process how to draw the entire range of manhwa characters-from the extreme fighting-machine heroes and giant beasts to the sexy women, anti-heroes, and evil warlords.
For aspiring comic book artists and manga artists looking for the latest craze in Asian comics Author’s Manga Mania series has sold more than 350,000 copies in less than three years Manhwa is the Korean name for comics Includes artwork from the very best Korean manhwa artists working today

Review : Manhwa nothin’.
I got this book because I draw manga but decided that I wanted to do something a little different. The first few pages were great! They clearly showed the differences between manga and manhwa. Then he gives you a lot of pages for you to copy the drawings on and practice. Great idea! Except that its virtually all manga/anime stlye. It seemed just like some of the author’s other how to draw manga books. I got this book because I DID NOT want a manga book but that’s exactly what it turned out to be. If you’re interested in drawing MANGA, this book is actually not too bad.
