Synopsis

All of Chris Hart’s how-to-draw titles are best-sellers. And the best-sellers among all of his best-sellers are the ones about animals. How to Draw Cartoon Animals, just one example, appears regularly on the BookScan Top 50 Art Books list, with more than 190,000 copies sold. Now The Cartoonist’s Big Book of Drawing Animals is ready to roar onto the market! All the most popular animals are here, including dogs, cats, horses, penguins, lions, tigers, bears, and elephants, as well as the favorite sidekick animals—pigs, kangaroos, giraffes, turtles. Simple step-by-step drawings show how to capture every cartoon emotion, from cutesy-sweet to begging to scheming, and how to create every box-office type, from baby animals to villain animals to clueless animals and much more. Faces, bodies, paws, feet, wings, tails—every part of dozens of animals is explained in this bumper book by the world’s leading author of instructional art books. It’s a mega-menagerie for cartoonists!

Excerpt

Well, for a penguin, it doesn't take much to bundle up for a snowstorm. But even a mother penguin is known to nudge her child to wear a hat! 
While you can create a variety of penguin characters, there is one caveat: Penguins have to be cute! Even if you're drawing evil penguins, they have to be cute-evil. It's a rule. If you break it, you'll get hate mail from penguin lovers all over the world.
Here's an important hint that is sure to make them look cute: Penguins have almost no legs! Their bodies are basically plopped down on their large flat feet. They're all tummy! This gives them a stubby, adorable look, even though they've got a long torso, because the torso is always abruptly cut off at the feet.
