The best part is that the beginner (me) can learn this interesting art form and have lots of fun in the process!
After giving the reader the basics the book shifts more into an encyclopedia reference book. If one were to do all the studies presented in the book, it would take a very long time and, I would guess, lead to a comprehensive understanding of basic cartooning. It does not cover anime or magna style, but once the basics are learn, figuring out other forms of cartooning was not that difficult (for me).
But thanks to this book, I've drawn quite a bit and have gotten many compliments on my cartoons.
The best way to learn cartooning is to study examples, sometimes trace over the examples.
This book is *filled* with examples. Hundreds of pages, many per page.
It also covers many subjects. I love the faces section, especially how to convey different emotions, but my favorite is the objects section. Bruce Blitz shows you how to break down any object into a few basic shapes (cylinder, cone, etc.). Basically you need to do is practice drawing the shapes, but once you can draw them decently, you can draw basically any object. You don't need to learn how to draw objects individually. You just need to learn how to "see" objects as a combination of a few basic shapes.
A few tips:
*Blitz says, rightly, that you shouldn't go overboard with art supplies. All you need to start with is a pencil, some regular paper, and a nice eraser. Yet he describes many fancy art supplies, which may confuse some readers. I suggest starting with the following: Pencils of a few different hardnesses. A good eraser; Blitz recommends a kneaded eraser, but I think Staedtler(R) Mars(R) Plastic Erasers are better. A small lightbox proved a great investment. Don't bother with the fancy screens and colors that he discusses.
*If you don't have great natural talent, begin by tracing over his drawings. It helps a lot to first imitate.
*Prepare to spend time than you think. Great cartoonists can churn them out in a few minutes, but for us non-cartoonists, it takes tons of time. I was surprised how long it took for me to produce a great cartoon, but it's been worth it, as I've gotten many compliments on my cartoons.
I can't believe how much you get from this book for the price. It could cost three or even four times as much, and it would still be well worth it.
