The sixth book in the bestselling Master Guide to Drawing Anime series, Expressions & Poses focuses on using principles of figure drawing to create anime characters and scenes.

The classic concepts of figure drawing are a perfect place to start to learn to draw for the aspiring anime artist. This anime drawing book gives readers step-by-step instructions on how to apply basic figure-drawing principles to the anime style that fans love. Chris covers figure-drawing fundamentals—such as proportions, posture, and poses—along with the finishing touches that infuse anime characters with personality. For example, a simple hand gesture can define an entire scene! This figure drawing book teaches readers how to draw hands and gestures, along with faces, contours, poses, anime costumes and clothing, scenes, and more. Each lesson offers tips and tricks that will demystify the drawing process, giving artists a solid figure-drawing foundation that they can apply to the anime style and beyond.

Drawing books are a perennial present to inspire young artists and a popular gift for teens. There is no greater tool than an art book to spark creativity, develop new artistic skills, and help kids and teens channel their energy towards positive self-expression.
