AnimeStyle Pro is a site aimed at people who want to learn how to draw in the anime/manga style as well as for those who simply want to learn more about the anime industry itself.
Cindy is an animator, animation director and character designer who has been working in the anime industry since the tender age of 16, and has an extensive list of credits that include classic titles like Akira, Record of Lodoss Wars, Ranma ½, Dirty Pair and Venus Wars as well as fairly recent shows like Kids on the Slope, Yona of the Dawn, Divine Gate and too many others to list here (please refer to Cindy's Filmography and Cindy's Bio for more information.)
This site originally started out as a team effort with Mark Giambruno, who was a 3D artist, art director and writer with 18 years experience in the computer graphics field, much of that spent creating game graphics and cinematics. He also was the author of 3D Graphics & Animation: From Starting Up to Standing Out and 3D Graphics & Animation: Second Edition.
Unfortunately, Mark passed away, leaving this site unfinished. But both agreed at the time that the English audience hadn’t been well-served by most titles of this sort, and felt that by combining Cindy’s experience in the anime industry with Mark’s experience writing instructional books, they could produce a book or site of their own. We are finally starting from where we left off, with more tips on drawing and updated news blog from Japan. We hope to put our skills to work to develop content and lessons to help YOU learn how to draw in the anime/manga style!
