Very easy steps to follow to produce all your favourite Simpson's characters. It really is child's play, my 12 year old produced a Bart in a very short space of time.
A lovely creative book for anyone who likes the Simpsons.

This book is basically an abridged version of the character sheets used on the Simpsons show, with a few extra notes inserted, so there isn't much to actually read. The foward by Matt Groening is amusing and has some useful pearls of wisdom buried in it for the budding cartoonist.
The tips given in the book are very good and are a boost to anyone wanting to draw Sinpsons characters, or indeed any cartoon characters as a lot of the tricks and tips can be applied to forms other than yellow people with freakish overbites.
The only real critism I have of this book is that it is too short and scimps on some important areas like body language, prop drawing, construction of hands and the like. The content which is there is very good, there just needs to be more of it.

As far as it goes it's very good. it's very good at mapping out the anatomy of the Simpson characters, but could have explored more stances and poses. Each pose and expression I would want are nearly all conspicuous by their absence but it does give enough for you to work it out with reference to what it does give you.

Interested comments and clear drawings. My 10 year old would benefit from a few more steps to get to the final drawings however the drawings are clear and fun. Any Simpsons fan will enjoy this book.

Quick, simple, zesty, and absoloutely to the point, this handsome shiny-covered tome lays out the exact understructure and detailing techniques used by professional animators to bring the USA's fave cartoon family to life. Read this, study it, work through it, internalize the time-honoured principles it espouses, and you'll be well on your beady-eyed little way to becoming the next multi-mega-millionaire creator of a smash-hit globally syndicated classic-n-beloved tv-toon franchise.

When you want to draw The Simpsons, but don't know how to, this is a good book. But it doesn't teaches you how to start, or tips if things are wrong.

When I bought this book, I was falsely led to believe that it would unlock all the secrets to drawing "The Simpsons" characters. In truth, if you aren't already an expert cartoonist and you don't have oodles of time to spend studying these instructions, this book is a total waste. So, unless you are the hardest of the hard core fans, don't bother with this book!

Kept number one son quiet for hours, a good investment for rainy weekends and half terms :)
