A book on the techniques of “Inhumanity”, infused with a wealth of knowledge and love for living creatures. The author of “Jinba” and “Warrior of the Iron World (Tekkai no Senshi)” explains how to design and draw “non-human” creatures!

The word “non-human” can be used to describe a wide range of expressions, from “anthropomorphic,” “beastman,” and “chemomimi,” which are more human-like, to “creature” and “monster,” which are more animal-like. The required expressions vary depending on the media in which the creature is depicted, such as manga, anime, and video games, and we will explain the different types of depictions.

The characters can be vividly expressed by understanding not only the external appearance of the creature to be depicted, but also its physical structure, the way it moves, and even its ecology, and projecting these into the character’s personality and behavior.

The explanations, which go beyond drawing techniques to include observation methods and ways of thinking, are backed by the author’s respect for and extensive knowledge of living creatures.

    I love this book. Sumiyoshi’s work is my biggest inspiration as an artist, and I always find it praiseworthy. This book contains a lot of insight and suggestions, complete with amazingly-drawn examples, of the process of designing and drawing anthropomorphic characters, and I’m sure it will bring me limitless inspiration.
    The print is nice, as the paper. I will cherish this book.

    (If your order has to be delivered in Italy be warned that FedEx will ask a huge custom duty. I am not sure if it’s just for Italy, but be warned nonetheless.)
