Most figure drawing books tend to avoid anything remotely sensual, let alone risqué or provocative. That’s not this book!

Intended for both experienced and beginner manga, hentai and comic book artists, Drawing the Female Figure will teach you the tricks of the trade when it comes to creating female characters with serious sex appeal.

Learn how to master a shapely figure, add personality, gesture and movement, and accurately portray the special characteristics of the female form. Annotated drawings — from sketches to finished designs — and detailed instructions from a master manga illustrator explain step by step how to draw the body, face, hairstyles, underwear, cleavage, boobs, and much ​more. You’ll also learn how to create a variety of different poses and angles for your characters.

A book full of inspiration to help you develop your skills, build your confidence, and most importantly, get you drawing!
