"Foundation Course Cartooning" is the first step to producing fantastic illustrations - whether hand or computer drawn. Beginning with a fully illustrated overview of the history of cartooning, it gives a fascinating account of early caricatures through to development of modern strip cartoons and animation. Providing everything you need to get started, the book's practical advice includes which equipment and materials you'll need for hand-drawn cartoons and guidance on computer hardware and software. All the major cartoon-drawing techniques are covered, plus easy-to-follow instructions on topics such as how to create characters, convey mood, personality and emotion, give the impression of movement, tell a story in pictures, and much more. Finally, masterclasses provide sample illustrations and practical step-by-step cartooning projects, giving valuable insights into how cartoons are generated and how you can improve your skills and develop your illustrations for a range of applications. This book teaches not only how to draw but also how to bring those cartoons to life.
