How to Draw Great-Looking Comic Book Women (Christopher Hart Titles)by Christopher Hart
Synopses & Reviews
Curvaceous Women, a top subject sought by comic book publishers, are the focus of this eye-popping instructional that shows aspiring cartoonists exactly how to master drawing a bevy of fabulous females.
From basic anatomy, musculature, body positions, and action poses to facial expressions, hairstyles, and costumes, this truly invaluable and unique resource covers in great detail every aspect of depicting great-looking women for comic books. The book also shows how to handle perspective and compose art specifically for comic book panels. In addition to chapters offering effective drawing lessons are sections on tricks of the trade, lists of comic book publishers and their submissions addresses, and interviews with industry professionals Bobby Chase of Marvel Comics and Renae Geerlings of Top Cow, who provide insiders' views of the business and give tips on how newcomers can land their first jobs in the field. Contributing illustrators have penciled and inked such famous characters as the X-Men, Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Catwoman, Supergirl, Green Lantern, Captain America, and many others.
"Hart writes in a brisk, easy-to-follow manner...and offers plenty of useful information for whatever type or gender character you want to draw, with advice on staging fight scenes, clarifying a cluttered scence and designing a dynamic cover, among others." Associated Press
