Synopsis

Synopsis

Here is a comprehensive approach to drawing comic-strip characters in an appealing contemporary style featuring large-format reproductions that can be easily copied. A wide range of drawings depicting people of all ages as well as such animals as cats,dogs, birds, and fish show you how to capture the personality, mood, and character of a subject. The 275 drawings illustrate head and body construction, how to draw facial features and expressions, how to use action lines to depict body language, how to draw hands and feet, and ways to convey emotion and age. The author also offers valuable tips on developing a comic strip. He shows you how to place subjects within panels; make a layout; master reverse angles, medium shots, and close-ups; establish lights and darks; and utilize dialogue balloons.

Beginning and intermediate artists—from the younger audiences attracted to animation to more sophisticated artist who enjoy New Yorker-type spot cartoons—will find the book of great interest.
