Description

Cartooning is celebrated as an art form by artists of all ages for its expressive, silly, and often exaggerated nature. Now young artists can join in on the fun with the relatable, quality instruction in Walter Foster's new "Cartooning for Kids" series. As the premiere title in the series, "Crazy, Zany Cartoon Characters" teaches young artists-in-training how to take their drawing skills from enthusiastic doodler to ace cartoonist through a series of engaging, easy-to-follow step-by-step cartooning projects. Children will learn the specific elements of cartooning, including how to exaggerate features, draw silly expressions, and create over-the-top gestures, as well as how to draw a variety of humorous animals and unique characters. They'll even learn how to develop and draw their own original cartoons. Featuring a variety of subjects, including quirky people and whimsical animals, as well as fantasy creatures, robots, and space aliens, "Crazy, Zany Cartoon Characters" provides the essential concepts for drawing in a true cartooning style. Projects start with simple shapes, such as a circle or an oval. Each step builds upon the previous and progresses to a finished final color artwork. Along the way, tips and tricks from a professional artist and illustrator are included to guide children in their artistic efforts, making this book an experience that is sure to create a new favorite pastime.
