Doodletopia: Manga is fun! I love to draw, and Manga has always been one of my favorites. But I’m not great with Chibi characters, and I was able to get in a lot of practice with this book. The artist sets up various scenes and projects for you to complete as you work your way through the book. I can’t wait for this book to come out in hard copy so I can fill in the pages.
