While I grew up on Manga Mania and its subsequent titles, Doodletopia has a different format. There are spaces left intentionally blank for the reader/artist to practice the techniques being demonstrated. And while this is not great for a public library, it’s a perfect solution for anyone who doesn’t want to carry around a bunch of supplies.
This book has a lot to offer a range of artists from beginners to advanced. Sometimes experts need to practice some of the basics too, and this book allows you to be as simple or as complex as you want with the drawing prompts. There are already other titles out in this series (i.e. Fairies and Cartoons), so go on out there and pick one up. Learn something new, or keep practicing what you love. Either way, this series is a great place to start!
