I'm searching the volumes of "How to draw manga: sketching manga-style" for free on the web, but I've found them only on sale on websites like Amazon, exc...

How to Draw Manga: Sketching Manga-Style Vol. 2: Logical Proportions (April 2007)

Here there are two pictures:
Does anybody know if there are some free versions of them in internet? (there are some old volumes like "how to draw manga: dressing you character in casual wear", but i'm not looking for them..)
Could you leave me a link?
If somebody knows some other good guides to draw manga (particulary how to draw perspective), could he/she leave me a link?
the "How to Draw Manga: Sketching Manga-Style" is a collection orientated for advanced artists, so they are quite expensive and the only pages I've seen from them are videos or photographies, the only chances to get them are buying or getting from a friend who owns a copy. I have neither
PS.: I'm also interested in learning perspective/proportions ^^

I'm pretty sure I found some of these in Japanese before, are you still looking?
Those seem rather good. I bought a few how to draw manga books myself at Akadot.com, you might get good deals there, for me it worked fine. Good and fast shipping, great quality price ratio.
And about other how to draw books I have one I bought there called "How to draw manga : Putting things in perspective", which is very good, and my personal favorite, Pen and Ink, the Manga Start-Up Guide.
Pen and Ink only costed me about 6 $ and contains colour pages, all manga phases from sketching to ink and tone, and close up looks to the techniques used by great artists like Yasuhiro Nightow (Trigun, Trigun Maximum), Oh!great and Satoshi Shiki. It also has alot of advice from storyline if you want to make a manga, to common mistakes when inking, making backgrounds,etc.
Btw, all thought this looks like a advertisement for Akadot, I speak for real when all the stuff I bought for them helped me, specially books.
EDIT: If you want you can P.M me and I scan my books of How To Draw manga, I have about 5 or 6 of them.
