Planning your layout

Comic Strip Layout

Layout is such an important facet of drawing cartoons. You don't want a flat and boring cartoon, so make sure your cartoon world is as graphically interesting as the real world. Experimenting with different perspectives, angles, and background details can help improve your story line and increase your cartoon's visual impact. The basic layout of the art and the placement of the characters and scenes are dependent on the story line. After you write the script what the characters say in the word...

Similar to the revised drawings featured on the previous pages, the amount of information contained in the drawings done at the level of an absolute beginner is different to that in advanced work. This is illustrated by the difference between nos. 1 and 8. The observer the person who set the task of drawing the boxes would be expecting only to see what was asked for, that is, a square box. Nos. 6 to 8 exceed these expectations. You cannot say...

Building An Action

Step Step Hero Drawings

Comic book heroes and villains are made to move, jump, leap, and soar. But when you start to position your figure in dynamic poses, things can get tricky unless you've taken care to maintain its essential building blocks. This is done by taking a moment to sketch out a solid rib cage, collar bone, pelvis, and the other major bones before executing the finished drawing. Contrary to what your instincts might tell you, muscles alone do not make a character appear sturdy. Solid bone structure does....

Lines for hair should flow away from the scalp and continue in the direction s set by the particular style. Instead of trying to draw each individual hair, draw large shapes and tufts. Don't make the hair appear too uniform. For women, especially blondes, you can create the illusion of luster by bunching some black lines together, provided that these...

The tips of the fingers bend at a more extreme angle than on a normal hand. Artist Frank McLaughlin says, The key to all comic book-style illustration is to exaggerate the form at the outset, then tone down whatever looks too extreme. Don't draw realistically and then try to soup it up. Your drawing will look overworked that way. Below are some helpful hints on drawing the heroic hand. The tips of the fingers bend at a more extreme angle than on a normal hand. The webbing between fingers...

About This Book

Extreme Facial Expressions

Curiously, there have been very few books on the subject of facial expression for the artist. To my knowledge, the last one was Sir Charles Bell's Essays on the Anatomy of Expression in Painting, published in 1806, and it wasn't a terribly good book in the first place. Many more recent drawing books have included short sections on expression without shedding much useful light on the matter. In fact, artists familiar with such sources have generally had the good sense to prefer their own...

There are as many facial expressions as there are faces, but some are better suited to comic book illustration than others. You could draw a guy with his eyes popping out and his jaw on the floor, but chances are you'd be better off working in an animation studio or locked away where you wouldn't be a danger to yourself or others. Draw only the lines that actually create the expression. The width of the jaw will vary, depending on whether the character is clenching his teeth. Eyebrows curve...

The Heroic Female Figure

Draw Girl Body Line

The heroic female figure has a fairly wide collarbone, resulting in square, well-muscled shoulders. A woman's rib cage, bones, and all of her muscles are smaller than a man's. Her torso tapers sharply at the waist, but her pelvis is wider. As a rule, comic book women are drawn with more curves, while the men are drawn with more heavy angles. For detailed information on how to draw comic book heroines, see Beautiful But Deadly, pages 56-75. The center of balance is an imaginary vertical line...

Space Between Biceps And Triceps Forearm

The important basic idea to get here is that the torso doesn't flatten out when the figure turns sideways it retains a great deal of thickness in profile. There's a lot of mass on the back and behind the arms, especially on big characters. Notice, too, that the upper body is defined by bunches of muscle groups while the legs are defined by longer, leaner muscles. There are two separate muscles located between the biceps and the triceps in the inner view of the upper arm the triceps brachii and...

Male and female bodies

How Draw Skeleton Male

Everything you've seen so far applies to both sexes. Although the illustrations show a skeleton with male proportions, the blueprint is the same for women. There is some overlap in the range of characteristics between the sexes, so keep in mind that everything you read here only applies to the average guy or gal. You'll find exceptions to every rule. Women have less muscle mass, and I'm probably risking my life by saying this more fat. Everybody stores fat almost all around their body, with a...

The receding lines may be drawn at any convenient angle. Upward and to the right at either 30 or 45 are most commonly used because these angles may be drawn with standard triangles. The choice of which receding angle to use depends on which angle best shows the object involved. Dimensional values are directly transferable from the front view of the orthographic drawing to the front view of the oblique drawing. Circles transfer as circles, not as ellipses as in isometric drawings, and angles...

Head Tilts and Turns

What gives our modern leading man his sleek look Primarily, it's the contour line that flows from the zygomatic arch the cheekbone just behind the eye down to the chin.
