"Dogs and cats, lions and tigers, and all the rest of the animal world are everybody's favorites in cartoon land - and they are the most fun to draw. Now the ever-popular Christopher Hart offers all the best tips on creating the essential critters in the cartoonist's repertoire - for comic strips, animation, illustration, and every other breed of cartoon creativity!" Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. "Because people are captivated by the "human" traits in animals, especially those that make us laugh; animals have been an endless source of humor for cartoonists. We chuckle at the antics of Marmaduke and Garfield, recognizing in them amusing behavior in our own pets. We also find humor in more human-like characters such as the irascible Donald Duck and the gloomy Eyore because their personalities remind us of people we know. With their ability to make people laugh, animals are essential in the repertoire of every cartoonist. In this book, Christopher Hart teaches an easy method for capturing the forms and expressions of animals. The book begins by showing how to create simple drawings with just a few strokes of the pen. Following the basic shapes, Hart goes on to depict animal personalities that are based on their physical traits. He covers many different species, from exotic African beasts to common breeds of dogs and cats. A final section shows how animals can be turned into "human" characters that stand upright and wear clothes. "
