From the publisher,
> This volume is aimed at the advancement of manga and prepared by a group of assistants to popular manga artist Yu Kinutani.

japanese nibs”PEN POINTS
Zebra, Nikko and Tachikawa are well look insideknown nib manufacturers. For drawing cartoon characters, the G-pen and the Round-pen are most often used. Some cartoonists prefer to use the turnip pen (Kabura Pen) for the hardness of line it gives.”

zebra nibnikko nibHow to draw Manga; Compiling Characters is my personal favorite in the How to draw Manga series. The authors compares Japanese pen nibs from Zebra, Nikko and Tachikawa, including the G-Pen, School Pen, Turnip Pen, Round Pen, Tama Pen, Saji Pen and Spoon Pen. The book has images of all nibs and a small drawing made with each nib. For example, NIKKO G-PEN ”This pen has a very smooth and easy flow. It is suitable for drawing thicker rather than fin lines.”
