Reviews

I'm in no way a professional cartoonist. I draw for personal satisfaction. My work is ok best so take my comments in that context.This book is not a step by step instruction on how to draw comic book heroes... It assumes you know the basics and are looking to draw in a more streamlined manner similar to modern action animation being produced today. That being said it does give a lot of great tips and tricks that have really boosted my skills in a short amount of time and I'm not even finished reading the entire book yet. My only reason for giving it 4 stars is that I don't love the authors writing style. I'm a technical person and he obviously isn't one. I wish he was more organized and too the point. But that's a personal preference. He does know what he's doing and he's great at it. But for me I had to dig a little to get the good stuff out but it's there and it works.One note about comments stating the drawing are inconsistent... I have to say I actually like that... Gets your mind working in order to form your own style rather than just copy what you see. It all works for me. I've very tempted to buy more of his books. I have the "Cartoon Cool" book but haven't started reading it. At first glance that one looks good too.
