This book is a great way to break into drawing. Other books were okay but this one helped me get over certain hurdles, both technique wise and psychologically.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grab your art supplies, ready, set... go! 30 Aug. 2004
By M. E. Volmar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This beautifully illustrated, easy to follow, step-by-step, how-to guide is the first book you should buy to learn the basic drawing techniques you need to accurately depict each cartoon character from the Superman universe (in the Bruce Timm/Animated Series style).
The information and instructions contained in this book are wonderfully organized and presented in step-by-step format (from rough sketch to finished drawing), include a list of tools and materials you need to get started and cover topics that include: guidelines on basic figure drawing, head and figure proportions, movements and expressions, comparisons of male and female figure features, and perspective and foreshortening for backgrounds and figures. The book also contains a detailed treatment on how to draw each character, including Superman (and Clark Kent), Lois Lane, Martha and Jonathan Kent, Jor-El and Lara, Lex Luthor, Parasite, Bizarro, Mr. Mxyzptlk, Metallo and Brainiac. As a bonus, the book teaches us how to draw settings and accessories like Metropolis, The Daily Planet, guns, cars and Superman's X-Ray and Heat vision.
This book is a simple, yet excellent resource on how to create your own adventures for the Man of Steel, at the same time that you begin to understand the basic principles of cartooning and animation.
A must buy for kids and adults who want to draw the Superman universe like professional artists in a relatively short time. If you prefer a more general book on how to draw DC Comics super heroes, I recommend buying How to Draw Batman and the DC Comics Super Heroes by Ty Templeton instead, since it contains around 90% of the characters featured in this book, plus a lot of other characters from other DC Comics universes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Style, Superman, and fun! 9 May 2000
By S. Arellano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book, as well as the how to draw the animated Batman book are incredible. Not too complex, colorful examples on an oversized book make it easy to learn the style of the animated Batman series, and it's similar style counterpart Superman. It has good tips on perspective, so beginners will be able to learn the basics, and more advanced fans of this kind of style will be able to work on the examples to hone their skill. Plus the writing is upbeat and fun, the characters often tell you how to do different parts of the book. 5 Stars for Fun and Style!

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent book for fans and kids, not quite up to artist 17 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is geared mostly to kids and fans of the show. It does offer good drawing tips and how to draw in the animated style. There isn't enough attention paid to the bad guys and other characters. But overall, it would help out those wanting to draw in the Bruce Timm style.
