Review : Very well researched and written
I have about 2 or 3 other ‘how to draw comics’ and this by far is the most researched and thought out one .
Here are just a few of the things you will learn about in this fantastic book . :
1:Getting started with cartoons and comics . (An excellent clash of examples based on the great comic creators of our time and before . Calvin and hobbes , Pogo ,Peanuts , Dilbert , ect … Plus a little history behind the comics industry .)
2:Creating cartoon characters : (How to create humans , animals,editoral cartoon characters , ect …)
3:Taking cartoons to the next level :(Here the author talks about placeing your comics on the interenet and introduces photoshop. )
4: How to run your own cartoon buissness . And how to get your comic strip or editoral out there for the world to see it .
There are 18 chapters in all (plus index).Those were just the tip of the iceburg .
The only problem I had with Drawing cartoons and comics for Dummies…
