Mastering Manga 2: sample illustration by markcrilley Mastering Manga 2: sample illustration by markcrilley
Today is the day of release for my new book, "Mastering Manga 2." Thanks so much to all of you who gave me suggestions as to what to include in this book. I did my best to cover all kinds of topics you don't usually see in how-to-draw books. Here is a link to my YouTube video giving you a guided tour of the book:

And here is a direct book for purchasing the book at Amazon:

A huge thank you to anyone who decides to get this book, or indeed any of my books. I greatly appreciate your support!

All my best,

Mark ^ _ ^

This one and the first one are on my wish list. I would've gotten the first one with my bday money a few months ago, but it wasn't at the store at the time and I was in a hurry

Oh geez, wait a minute, I recognize your name! You're the artist of Miki Falls, aren't you? I loved that series (got 'em all four!) Awesome to have found you (just accidentally) here on dA!

I just found a famous artist on DA

 

... Well, I might have heard a long time ago that you have DA, but...

 

This is just perfect. Now I can watch you and get stuff off of Youtube.

Hey, Q for anyone that knows. Is it worth buying the first Mastering Manga before reading the 2nd? I'd just like to know if they're a series, or just an update with further techniques. Either way, I'm certainly going to buy this in the new year when I have time to work on my drawing :)

I ordered Mastering Manga 2 and Brody's Ghost 4 from Amazon about a week ago. They said it would arrive in mid-November but I honestly cannot wait that long. I just want to get my hands on those books and start reading and drawing!
Thank you so much for taking your time to produce such helpful content for us aspiring artists :) You're amazing Mr.Crilley!

Mr. mark Crilley: Thanks.

i have been drawing in the anime style for two years or so always having been a drawer before hand.
i first saw you do it in a you tube video around the time a new friend of mine was introducing to me the foreign scene of anime and manga drawing.  i am an avid cartoonist and i want to say you are one of my main cartoon style influences your style is plainly anime but your style has a certain quality to it that is not overpowering as far as complexity, lends itself to realism a bit but totally shows the amount of experience you have.
also i can appreciate your approach to the style that comes from a purely educational, conservative teaching style (from my perspective anyway) wanted to thank you for that too.
that said, i saw your first mastering manga book (i picked it up after watching all your you tube how to draw videos...hooked on both resources) and i use it and lend it out to others (some younger artists who i know who look for some tips and basics) as reference, it is a great book that teaches the basics of the anime cartooning style but leaves breathing air room for peoples imaginations to fill the gaps. it doesn't hard line any point you make where one could do it differently based on their style i really liked the way you spoke the basics and encouraged creativity and not a do and do not list...very easy to understand and practice!
and the biggest value i believe it had was:
reference! reference! reference!
i use it still! to see how perspective and hand posture would look in certain situations
and for inspiration, just looking for things that may spark my next idea.
 i appreciate your help in showing others how to draw this style and i eagerly await the release of this book to my area so i can pick it up too! thanks for all your help!

hope this next book brings back more positive feed back!
