This is the best book on a hot new topic!
Written and illustrated by a former Marvel Comics artist with brilliant hand-done images throughout, this graphic handbook of cartooning is without equal. It's simply larger, better illustrated, and more in depth than any similar title on the market. In elaborate detail, Action! Cartooning focuses on superheroes and their atmospheric world filled with speed and movement.
Every aspect of creating cartoons is taught: the supplies, developing mood, and the techniques that endow characters with personality. See how to draw a variety of faces (female, heroic, cute, and gaunt), and give the appearance of age. From the skeleton to the torso, to the arms, hands, and legs, readers follow every stroke that goes into producing bodies of all shapes and sizes.
Finally, there's instruction on sending those figures into running, jumping, punching, and kicking action in a fully realized scene. With advice so thorough, any amateur can become a pro.
