If you can see it, or think it, you can draw it! Learn every aspect of cartooning, from facial expressions to figures in costume, with this easy-to-follow guide.
Cartooning gives budding artists an opportunity to expand their skills in creating amusing characters and developing dramatic scenes. This accessible guide breaks down the entire process: drawing figures, both human and animal; capturing specialist areas such as heads, faces, and hands; conveying a range of expressions and distinctive features; and even designing appropriate costumes. Put your favorite medium to paper and make a monster, complete with effects; a personality-filled rat; an adorably grumpy bulldog; and a man riding a donkey. Duotone lines highlight each step, and the lessons incorporate various types of drawing materials, including pencil, pen, crayon, paints, and charcoal.
