Christopher Hart's how to draw books are all wonderful. I own this one and a couple others and I often go back to them when I just can't get my sketches perfect. When I first received them I couldn't tear myself away. I was drawing up a storm 24-7. I've drawn realistic pictures all my life, but until buying these books, I'd never been able to whip out anything cartoony. Unexpectedly, his instructions and tips on cartoon drawing also helped me out in my realistic drawing and creativity.
I can't say enough about this book! You won't be disappointed! It's well worth the price and more. One great thing about it is that not only does the author really know his stuff, he's managed to present it wonderfully. It's a fun & easy read!!!

As a cartoonist and author myself ( of "Let's Toon Caricatures"), I have quite a collection of how to draw books that I've amasses over the years. This book is my all time favorite for drawing great, cartoony animals.

This book everything you want to know when it comes to drawing animaltoons. Great place for people to start learning how to draw. Great for cartoonists that thought you already learned everything you could from a book. ***I learned more from a month of reading Christopher Hart's books than I did from 2 years of HighSchool art class and 1 year of art college!***

Format: Paperback
This book is by far the best one in my collection:) It's stuffed with inspirational pictures and it's very easy to read:) It took me only about a half hour to create my very own cartoon character after reading a bit in this book:D

The step-by-step drawing guides in here are so easy to follow, and the book also show you different degrees of hardships in creating a character. You have the easily drawn characters, the medium hard-to-draw characters, and the really hard-to-draw characters:S

I'd say i was already in the "Medium" category when i bought this book, so the easily drawn characters were just to simple for me to even bother with. But still, they make good reference::)

If i am to say something about what audience this book is aimed for, then i'd have to say it's for beginners and people like me(A bit past beginner:p). There are VERY few hard-to-draw pictures in here, so i'm gonna have to buy another book soon if i keep progressing like i do:p

Different animals you can learn to draw from this book: Cats, dogs, horses, sharks, elephants, lions, tigers, bears and a few other critters...

I love this book :) I do not regret buying it at all:) I can actually REALLY reccomend this book to people who are out for learning this subject:)

I'm an experienced cartoonist and wanted to venture into animal animation. This book is good for the over all view of the animals body shape...but's that's all it's good for. So, pretty much the basics. Still, it's always good to have when you forget the shape of the animal...after all there are thousands of animals that are shaped differently!

I have several of his books and each one seems to be better than the one before. What a wonderful artist, full of imagination, who also has a unique way of teaching you how to create something similar. I would recommend it to anyone - young or old. You feel as if he is sitting beside you gently guiding your pencil.
