However, if you've ever seriously sat down to draw your own cartoons, you'll know that it can be incredibly difficult to do on your own. Friends and family might compliment you on your work, but you may secretly feel that your characters are flawed, or that your cartoon hands are unrealistic.

Well as it was free from Kindle books I thought I would try it, I still think you need a basic drawing skill, but the tips are useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Find the artist in you 8 Nov 2013
This is one of those books that I really wished I had read when I was a youngster, trying to get his hand around painting something, anything that didn't look like a scratch on the paper.

While reading the words and going through the simple, yet detailed images I felt like, yes, I could try start drawing again, now that I finally got to know how. This book promises to help the rookie navigate the world of cartoon drawing and it does exactly that, in a straightforward and impressive in its simplicity way. I'd recommend it to everyone out there who'd like to discover the hidden artist in them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great How-to Book 10 Nov 2013
By Sue B. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book is a well written technical guide for a cartoon artist who wants to take his work to the next level. While this book is great for individuals with intermediate artistic skills, the beginner will also benefit. Included in this book is information about the appropriate pens and brushes needed as well as the type of paper you should use. There are tons of easy-to-follow basic cartoon sketches for the reader to practice copying. With entire chapters focused on the basic components of the cartoon, you’ll learn how to draw the comic head, hands, and feet, for example, one feature at a time. This book is definitely recommended more for the advanced artist who wants to improve the basics of drawing cartoons than for the beginner or drawing enthusiast.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good beginning 16 Mar 2014
By Robert Lange - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
If you're new to cartooning this is a good starting point. Nothing earth shattering for the medium or advanced cartoonist and nothing overly complicated for the beginner. The key to any drawing activity is practice, something most people are unwilling to do these days. There is no great secret or technique that will instantaneously transform all your brilliant ideas into cartoon or comic gold, you have to work at it. I've been doing it on and off for forty years, for fun and for profit and I'm still not totally happy with my abilities. Pick a book, pick a style, then practice, practice, practice!
