Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Jane Van Wiemokly
Hart's How to Draw titles are part of a series that includes his How to Draw Comic Book Heroes and Villains (Watson-Guptill, 1995). They begin with the basics: how to draw heads and bodies. Hart continues in Dogs by showing different types and breeds, anatomy, and variations from reality. Bad Guys is essentially the same corresponding material, except that we get different bad types of men and women rather than dogs, including mutant and otherworld villains. These are not for beginners, but for those who already have some knowledge of drawing and ability. Bad Guys comes across as more sophisticated, geared for older teens, partly attributable to the subject matter. Boldly colored illustrations combined with the line drawings add to the professional look of the books, from which readers can get some ideas for drawing their own villains. Draw 3-D is a gem of a book. While Hart's books are better for eliciting ideas than giving exact how-to instructions, DuBosque takes readers step-by-step to teach perspective drawing. He assumes the reader has no knowledge of how to achieve 3-D drawings, so he uses clear, concise directions that are complemented by his illustrations. Anyone who wants to (forgive the pun) "add depth" to their artwork, but does not know how to accomplish it, would find this an effective source for learning linear perspective. DuBosque has done other books in this series on specific subjects such as Draw Ocean Animals, Draw Insects, Draw Cars, and Learn to Draw Now!, among others. Note: This review was written and published to address Draw 3-D: A Step-by-Step Guide to Perspective Drawing, How to Draw Cartoon Dogs, Puppies & Wolves, and How to Draw Comic Book Bad Guys and Gals.

I like all of his books because they teach you step by step. They don't just throw the pictures at you and have a title saying ' Now get a pencil and draw this!'

I bought this book...my second of Christopher Harts...and enjoy it greatly! It has several of the more popular breeds such as the Doberman, Cockerspaniel and Sheepdog, and they are all relitivly easy to draw. This book also shows how to make your dogs look more human...a must have for any cartoonist! I love it!
