I haven't heard of this title, but it sounds great for it to be published in English! Anime smile

Let's draw Manga-Yaoi? o.O did I just read that right.

Ohhhh boy. Just what all these yaoi fangirls need, tutorials on how to draw their fave guys doing naughty things. *goes to make sure she's removed herself from the Death Note community*

No offense yaoi fangirls, I'm mainly joking. ... Mainly.

I'll never understand Death Note yaoi. I mean, even as someone who fancies herself to be a yaoi fangirl to some degree, I just can't see it......

*Ahem* Anyways, After looking this up on JPQueen, the art certainly looks pretty. I really like how DMP handles their releases so I'll be looking forward to this. It's a good time to be a yaoi fan Anime smile

That being said, a Let's Draw Manga- yaoi book sounds rather interesting. I wonder how they go about teaching something like that? Who knows, maybe I'll learn to draw some new.... positions Twisted Evil

\/\/007, a fellow disillusioned Death Note community expatriate! *glomps littlegreenwolf*

Let's Draw Manga Yaoi...Honestly, after overcoming my nausea, it's really kinda funny. I mean, teaching the amazing art of gay porn... Are there even such books in America? (wouldn't be surprised)

And quite honestly, I don't see how hard drawing such things could be...If one can draw and understands human anatomy, yaoi prolly wouldn't be that hard to draw...

OK, I should just keep my big mouth shut.

*shrugs* Have fun, fangals. *shakes head in wonder*

Sometimes I wish I were male...

Because it's a new license announcement. New aquisitions and con reports always get listed on the main page and being this is a report from Yaoi-con, of course they're going to list it. Although, judging by the snipet at AoD, they left out a couple details....

Well, drawing two people in close quarters is a different beast from drawing one body. I've drawn the occasional scene where two people hug, and it requires a bit more thinking than just posing a single person. You need an understanding of space, proportion, and how shapes deform/disappear when people touch.
