Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School--A superb, comprehensive guide to the realm of Web-based cartoons, comics, and animation. The brief history of cartooning begins 35,000 years ago with the cave art at Lescaux and traces a time line to today's developments. The book takes readers on a creative trip from initial sketches to posting a finished product on the Web and covers the basic processes of creating a cartoon, choosing a format, developing a character, and writing a story line. Withrow discusses sketching backgrounds, composition, coloring of characters, lettering, editing, and posting the work. All along the way, readers find invaluable suggestions and comments from leading digital cartoonists. The book is also visually rich with photographs of cartoons and animated characters, and illustrations on how to produce digital animation. This is a satisfying read for anyone interested in state-of-the-art animation, and it is sure to be popular with young adults.--John Kiefman, Fairfax County Public Library, VA

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Charley Parker on September 25, 2004
Format: Paperback
This is a suberb overview of the current state of digital cartooning. It showcases many of the top digital cartoonists and comics artists working today. It features beautiful full-color spreads of digital art, reproduced large (thank you very much), and details on the background and approach of each featured artist.

The book also includes many useful tips and techniques for digital cartoonists, although its real strength is as a showcase of some of the best digital cartooning and comics art out there. A beautiful book.

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Spidercake on March 31, 2012
Format: Paperback
It says it was published in 2003, but it feels like it came from the 90s. Everything in this book feels amateur and rushed (some images even have the Mac's cursor left on them!). A lot of the images are pixelated and blurry too. I have no idea what that 5 star review before me was on about when they said "showcases many of the top digital cartoonists and comics artists working today", because it would be more accurate to say it showcases many of the artists who are doing so poorly that they would accept to be published in any sort of book.

This book is basically a guide to everything an artist should avoid, and that is probably the only good use for it.
