If you're interested in turning up the dial on your comic book character rendering, this guide will give you instruction that no other current book offers. It contains excellent material on basic anatomy and facial structure, including an extensive section on drawing the face from varying angles.
Hart illustrates how a simple lift of the shoulder, look in the eye, or furrow in the brow can make the difference between the ordinary and the cutting edge character, pushing you toward creating unique personalities that are the gold standard for designing extreme comics.
Dozens of fantastic, "how-to" illustrations accompany each section. There's also instruction on how to create intense coloring techniques such as knockouts and glows. Rounding out this rad offering is a collection of leading artists describing how they create original character designs, many issued exclusively for this book. There's also interesting commentary on perspective, getting an agent, and publishing your work.
