Wow, was this a great book to learn how to draw cartoons. As the book promised I learned to bring my drawings to life. Since trying several of the projects I have shared my final designs with friends to their delight.
Very easy to follow instructions, and especially enjoyed the side-by-side comparisons. This helped me clearly see where I could easily make mistakes.
Although I know necessary, the only thing I found a little too long was the beginning introduction.
Overall, I loved this book and anyone interested in learning to draw cartoons should definitely purchase this book.
I was provided this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book for anyone who loves a good, well-written tutorial for drawing cartoon. 📕👍🏼
I GIVE IT A 5 STAR: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
