2.0 out of 5 stars Should be called "cute cartooning" 1 Jan 2014
By Chandler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was looking for inspiring ideas to add interesting details to my drawings and I looked through the "see inside this book" feature and saw things to inspire me. Unfortunately, opening the actual book once I got it was quite different.

The little cartoon girl on the front is more the focus of the book: it is mostly focused on doing cute children, a fox housewife, a fish putting on lipstick, a cartoon cat in a tutu, a frog playing a guitar, teddy bears, etc. but all in cartoon style. Not my style at all...and I have no kids which I feel is the main focus here: doing cute kid's drawings.

Too, there could have been so much more done here: Many pages are mostly white space with just 3 or 4 flowers, and then tons of totally blank pages. While it's said this is for you to practice, I wish the space had been utilized with more tips and inspiring ideas in other styles. For example, I like this way this artist does her organic shapes: the leaves, the flowing doodles. I like her watercolors and her borders. I found it odd to use whole pages for things like: sign your name as if you are a librarian, sign your name as if you are a rockstar, sign your name as if you were a teenager, a kindergartner, a teacher...there seemed to be lots of space fillers.

I did pick up some new tips and reminders of things I'd forgotten...I had, for example, not used graphite paper for ages and she mentioned using it for tracing and that is a great tip when transferring really detailed designs or sketching quickly. So, don't get me wrong, there are a few tips in here but it left me wanting more for sure...more variety, less silly cute.

I think this would be a fantastic book for a teen or pre-teen girl interested in drawing, however. The cartoon kids on skateboards and dogs dressed up in clothes might be a fun style for sure.

It was sadly lacking in much else but these--I REALLY liked the pages that were more on illustration and less on cartooning, as it's always good to expand one's style, but even though I like whimsy VERY much in my art, I think cats in tutus and such are fine for some but expanding the boundaries of style since she does so many other things well would have been so much greater for a wider audience. This could have been done if the book wasn't divided so greatly into all blank pages for practice.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as expected 30 Dec 2013
By Susan Conklin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is ok but my interpretation of the writeup was that it was "inspiring tips, techniques, and ideas…" but it focuses more on a pre-teen, cutesy-girlie esthetic. Not what I was looking for.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 1 Mar 2014

Expected more than a couple of sketches and a blank page, the cover of this book just about gives you the book

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Inspiration!!! 7 Mar 2014
By Bethap916 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to get out of the idea rut that I was in. There's different things you can do in the book and you can use it for getting new ideas. There's some really cute ideas. I have ended up drawing some things that I never thought I could because I never would have thought of it on my own. Everyone has their own style but getting outside ideas helps you expand your style. Great book!!! Go buy it!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun,but for journaling! 16 Dec 2013
By Maria Weisenberger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It"s more for Journaling, so I will probably give it to my sister. The illustrations are fun, but not my style.
