    so much for so little!

    i can't believe how comprehensive this book is for just 9.95! you get tips on how to draw in an 'animation' type fashion and it shows you how to manipulate 4 different facial types to come up with a variety of different features. combines comic art style with cartooning. an awesome buy.

    How To Cartooning Guide

    This is an excellent book on cartooning. Packed with info and picture drawings that give great examples as well as helping with ideas for characters both action and funny. This book is way better than a lot of the more expensive well thought of books. This is a must for anyone interested in cartooning. have fun.

    Interesting book, but there are other selections worth looking for...

    This is basically a fine book for beginners. Anyone who's eager to draw their own cartoons for comics, books, and/or illustrations then they've picked the right book, I guess. It's pretty much got all the basics of drawing your own cartoons down to a fine art, and there is more from the same author (Ben Caldwell) who gave his time and money to make his series of drawing books. However, in my opinion, I think manga cartoons are better. Mangas are more realistic even in sketch books and notepads while the "more" Americanized cartons are somewhat a bore. If there is anyone who still enjoy this kind of cartooning and is eager to get started though, this book is the one. But for those who'd rather do Japanese cartoons...

    more from this reviewer

    Got a budding artist?

    Our son loves to draw, especially comic book characters. This guide provides excellent examples and enough "how-to" to make it useful for anyone middle-school age and older.
