    Had lots of fun with this. The drawings are very easy to follow, and the results are fantastic! I was able to easily reproduce what the book showed in less than a minute or two for most characters. The book breaks down each drawing step by step, and explains why you do/do not do certain things. There are also "bad examples" that show you what happens if you draw certain parts too long, too small, etc. And the characters are spot on kawaii and look very pro. There are 2 main styles: chibi and moe Had lots of fun with this. The drawings are very easy to follow, and the results are fantastic!

There are 2 main styles: chibi and moe. The moe style is much much harder to draw and requires 3-4 times the time/effort compared to the chibi style. The bulk of the book teaches the very much simpler chibi style.

    I had bought this book to learn to draw the cutesy Kawaii style figures that the Japanese (and me) love!, and I have to say this was well worth it. This is a nice thick book with lots of gorgeous bright colour drawings in a variety of manga styles. Some of the designs come with step by step instructions and some of them don't but the the pictures of the cutesy food are easy to figure out. My daughters both love the book and frequently request cute food or little people.

My attempts are not bad but not good either!! Christopher Hart has a whole series of these books and they all look gorgeous, my only gripe is they are a little expensive at around £15 each but I managed to get my copy for half of that from Amazon Warehouse. All in all a great book for geeky adults like me and older children from 7 upwards To view my pictures from this book visit my blog! http://redheatherduff.blogspot.com

    MANGA FOR THE BEGINNER KAWAII not only shows really great step-by-step instructions for how to do Kawaii characters, but also takes the time to explain the difference between Kawaii and several of the other types of characters found in Japanese comics. I think for someone just starting out having that information is super helpful :-)

    Great book to learn all of the basic techniques and tools needed to begin drawing in the Kawaii style. Seemingly simple there are a fair amount of things to learn about this style, most interestingly of all (at least for myself) the differences between it and the Chibi style. It has a fair amount of examples and step by steps of various Kawaii characters and even includes a bonus chapter outlining the basics of the Moe style (pronounced Mo-eh I believe). I cannot say much about the Moe section ot Great book to learn all of the basic techniques and tools needed to begin drawing in the Kawaii style.

I cannot say much about the Moe section other then it is a nice bonus but not a style I am interested in in any way shape or form. As a disclaimer I am a complete novice in my drawing skills (working feverishly to get better) so take that into consideration when reading this short review.

    I enjoy using Christopher Hart books as references and help, and this one is no different. Hart goes over all the basics of Kawaii characters, as well as a section dedicated to moe style and food art as well. With discussions and examples of different body types, poses and coloring techniques, this book is a valuable source for anyone looking to better themselves in the art of Kawaii.

    This book was filled with lot of inspiration. The only issue I had was in the beginning, the author made it seem like there was only one way to draw a kawaii character, which to me meant that an illustrator could never change and adapt their drawings. Later on in the book he broke some of his own rules.

    This is one of the more basic anime designs so it's easy to draw but there are lots of super cute ideas. Quite a number of things in the book to draw and a Chris Hart shows a lot of them in a 4 or 5 step process. There's also a couple larger "scenes" to draw at the back of the book. Got this from the library but might have to buy this one!

    I have bought a couple of copies of this book now for my son and one of his friends who were both interested in this style of drawing. They are both 6 years old and while some of the later chapters were too advanced for them, they really have enjoyed the earlier chapters. From my sons POV he has really enjoyed he simple layout and clear directions

    Useful I'm encouraging my children to draw. They enjoy it but my oldest lacks confidence. It's helping him be more expressive and is giving him to confidence to try new techniques.

I found this book to be extremely engaging and motivational to those who want to learn how to draw Kawaii. Ever since I was a kid I have loved to draw despite not having the talent to draw very well, and have loved manga. This book is the perfect combination of the two. This is one book I think both manga fans and young artists will want to have. I highly recommend picking this one up! It's even one I think parents, teachers, librarians would enjoy having on hand.
