In This Chapter

^ Improving your cartoons with the proper layout ^ Using various drawing strategies to create visual interest ^ Adding details to spice up your backgrounds

7 he way you draw the background, the details you include that make up the environment, and the manner in which you place figures all contribute to the story that your cartoon tells. Even the simplest sketch benefits from a proper layout and details that make the cartoon background come alive.

You want your cartoons to be more than just characters walking around in blank space. The characters need a home — a background that lets the reader know where they are. In this chapter, I take apart cartoon layouts to explain what components make for a great layout. I also show you how to add the background details that make your cartoons fun and visually interesting.
