    Ich fand das Buch sehr übersichtlich und die Erklärungen sind sehr gut gemacht. Es gibt einen guten Überblick über das Comic Handwerk. Besonders gut fand ich die Referenzbilder und die Skizzen dazu. Die letzten Kapiteln waren für mich persönlich weniger interessant, da ich Zeichnen nur als Hobby betreibe.

    An excellent resource! The frequent comparison between model reference and figure sketch was a lightbulb moment for me as to how valuable it is to spend time building up specific photo references for facial expressions, poses and locations when planning out an idea.

    Not for kids. Not a beginners book but entertaining and educational.

    There are a lot of tips and tricks worth the entire read. My current style is becoming more defined and is somewhat different than examples given so my personal interest was limited. But that is another reason to look at this book, to see what individual contrast of techniques you have already developed. I.E. I use a different method of eyes and lips, size proportion of characters is 7 instead of the elongated 9. To each his own.
