Pressestimmen

"You've researched your character extensively, tailored her to your audience, sketched hundreds of versions, and now you lean back content as you gaze at your final character model sheet. But now what? Whether you want to use her in an animated film, television show, video game, web comic, or children's book, you're going to have to make her perform. How a character looks and is costumed starts to tell her story, but her body language reveals even more. Character Mentor shows you how to pose your character, create emotion through facial expressions, and stage your character to create drama. Author Tom Bancroft addresses each topic with clear, concise prose, and then shows you what he really means through commenting on and redrawing artwork from a variety of student 'apprentices.' His assignments allow you to join in and bring your drawing to the next level with concrete techniques, as well as more theoretical analysis. Character Mentor is an apprenticeship in a book."--CartoonBrew.com "If, like me, you are always looking to push yourself as a character artist I cannot recommend this book enough... Each chapter is a lesson on a specific topic, ranging from Posing to Shape-based composition. At the end of a chapter [Tom] sets you homework followed by examples of completed tasks by fellow students. Tom himself has gone over each example, annotating and thoroughly explaining each one in order for you to see how to bring your own work up to scratch...The best thing about this book for me, however, is that it doesn't end. You can never be truly finished with it as the teachings within are always relevant...it's like having a teacher on your shelf that will never be too busy to help you out and will always give you good advice."--Robin Liebschner, Skwigly.com

Kurzbeschreibung

You've researched your character extensively, tailored her to your audience, sketched hundreds of versions, and now you lean back content as you gaze at your final character model sheet. But now what? Whether you want to use her in an animated film, television show, video game, web comic, or children's book, you're going to have to make her perform. How a character looks and is costumed starts to tell her story, but her body language reveals even more. Character Mentor shows you how to pose your character, create emotion through facial expressions, and stage your character to create drama. Author Tom Bancroft addresses each topic with clear, concise prose, and then shows you what he really means through commenting on and redrawing artwork from a variety of student "apprentices." His assignments allow you to join in and bring your drawing to the next level with concrete techniques, as well as more theoretical analysis. Character Mentor is an apprenticeship in a book.


Professional artists from a variety of media offer their experience through additional commentary. These include Marcus Hamilton (Dennis the Menace), Terry Dodson (X-Men), Bobby Rubio (Pixar), Sean "Cheeks" Galloway (Spiderman animated), and more. With a foreword by comicbook artist Adam Hughes, who has produced work for DC, Marvel Comics, Lucasfilm, Warner Bros. Pictures, and other companies.

Ich zeichne seit über 30! Jahren Karikaturen und Comics. Also denke ich, ich kann mir hier ein wohlwollendes Urteil erlauben:

Das Besondere an diesem Lehrbuch ist, es werden hier u.a. Zeichnungen von Emotionen, Mimiken und Gesten gezeigt, die ausnahmslos talentierte Schüler der Comic-Kunst gemacht haben. Und dann der Meister himself. Der Unterschied liegt im Detail.
Wer Feinschliff sucht, statt der immer wieder zu findenen Basics, ist mit diesem Buch mehr als nur geholfen!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wundervolles Buch! 6. August 2013
Von Blue
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich war erst von dem Cover des Buches nicht so angetan gewesen, bis ich hier auf Amazon in das Buch geschaut hatte und war Positiv überrascht. Ich bestellte mir es also.

Ich bin sehr Begeistert davon!

Es wird Schritt für Schritt erklärt, wie man Posen Dynamischer und Interessanter Gestalten kann. Diese Beispiele sind immer anhand von 2 Möglichkeiten und im Vergleich zweiter Comic Zeichner gezeigt. Was ich persönlich sehr Interessant finde, da doch jeder Zeichner seinen eigenen Stil hat.

Sehr Interessant finde ich den Teil mit den Emotionen. Es ist doch sehr schwierig das Zeichnerisch fest zu halten und in diesem Buch wird es erklärt. Ich kannte bis jetzt kein einziges Buch oder Tutorial wo es erklärt wird.
Im Buch ist übrigens auch Perspektive erklärt anhand von mehren Beispielen, in verschiedenen Blickwinkeln.

Ich bin zwar eher im Mangabereich präsent, aber dieses Buch gefällt mir wirklich ausgesprochen gut.

Kaufempfehlung :-)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good book on bringing your characters to life 18. Juni 2012
Von Parka TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
Länge: 1:01 Minuten
Character Mentor is sort of an extension of Tom Bancroft's earlier book Creating Characters with Personality.

The first book focuses on the actual designing of characters. This book focuses on bringing the characters to life with body language, specifically by using expressions, poses and staging. In other words, this book is about acting using your characters.

It's filled with tips and insights, just like the first book. As the book title suggest, the teaching style here is one of mentoring. There are many assignments included, and Tom Bancroft has included his students' work, together with his mentor notes on the different ways to improve the result. You'll feel the years of experience seeping through the pages as he explains. It's all very simple and practical tips you can use to improve your characters instantly.

There are many wonderful illustrated examples in the book to show how important acting is to creating believability. One look at them and you'll be able to guess accurately how the character is feeling, who the character is or what the scene is about. These are all done without dialogue. The goal of the book is to impart the knowledge of getting to that level of clarity with your characters, the same sort of clarity you would expect from a masterful silent movie.

The book also includes a section on composition. It teaches you how to frame your scene with your characters to better tell a story. While this section is not technically character design, it's still useful knowledge. Several guest artists are also invited to have a go at an assignment. Artists such as Stephen Silver, Sean Galloway, Terry Dodson, etc.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lange gesucht 18. Juni 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Bücher wie dieses habe ich vor zwei Jahrzehnten verzweifelt gesucht. Schön, dass der englischsprachige Markt durch Amazon jetzt zugänglich ist, was sich für mich gerade für Bücher übers Comiczeichnen bezahlt macht. Der deutschsprachige Markt hat ja noch immer meistens nur Comiczeichen-Anleitungen für Kinder zu bieten. Das Buch hier kann aber mehr. Was mir für die Figurenentwicklung viel bringt, ist die Darstellung, wie ein Mentor, also ein erfahrener Zeichner, die Posen nochmal "nachwetzt" und verbessert und mit mehr Dynamik und Ausdruck versieht, die ihm Studenten abliefern.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another excellent work by Tom Bancroft! 3. Mai 2012
Von wandrlust - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Since I was 3 years old I wanted to be a Disney animator. I've practiced and practiced and gotten pretty far studying the masters of animation. But there was always just a little something missing. This book has already given me the boost I need. It has tons of helpful advice for anyone from novice to advanced users. Most books on character design really only scratch the surface. Tom Bancroft takes a chisel and turns that surface into a carefully sculpted work of craftsmanship. He allows us on the "outside" of the industry to finally get at all the juicy tips he learned in his time at Disney. Outstanding work, Tom. I'm forever a huge fan.

This is an insightful book to character design. It's a great addition and supplements the first book well. Recommended to artists with some basic knowledge on character design, which is to say you should check out Creating Characters with Personality if you haven't done so.

5.0 von 5 Sternen BEST HOW-TO BOOK ON CARTOONING EVER? 7. Mai 2012
Von Eric C. Martin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I don't know where to begin praising this book. Sure, there's TONS of how-to books on cartooning out there
but FINALLY here's a book that is hyper-specific on the little nuances of creating characters. "Twinning", using depth,
specifics on how wrinkles work on clothing, etc. In addition, there's contributions by other artists like Terry Dodson,
Stephen Silver, etc. Also, there's some assignments for the reader to do. Tom's Disney-esque drawing style is just bursting with
life and energy. (Obviously a graduate of CAL-ARTS.)

Please note that this may not be a book for beginners. The book focuses more on bringing life and energy to your
characters.

I highly recommend purchasing Tom's previous book "Creating Characters with Personality" too by the way.

A MUST for any aspiring cartoonist!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Real Deal 8. Mai 2012
Von B. Wong - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
In the fields of animation and illustration, the craft of character design is often completely overlooked by the casual observer. Instead, the human eye perceives the most well-crafted characters as living things, whether we're looking at a sequence of frames or simply one static image, because the finest character designers have learned what exactly tricks the brain into seeing life in lines.

There have been a handful of books over the last thirty years or so that have touched on this topic to one degree or another. However, these are very often oversimplified, starting with volumetric shapes and hurrying through the details to arrive at the quickest complete character possible. Such methods are certainly valid and universally applicable -- for first-year animation students, perhaps, or fledgling comic book artists. Up until now, the question of what makes a character truly unique and lively has been left as something the novice must explore him/herself.

Tom Bancroft's book is probably the first one of its kind that goes past this basic level. Right off the bat, Tom assumes the reader is not only intelligent but avidly interested in the details. He explores perceptual cues, the various methods of conveying emotion and personality (which are far more numerous than simply drawing a smile or a frown), and the tiny little decisions that can completely alter the way an audience will see a character, for better or for worse.

Tom's experience as a veteran of Disney's traditional animation era really shines through here. And in an age where technology provides an ever-increasing range of shortcuts, it's ultimately all the more important that these techniques be detailed and passed on to the next generation of artists. Check this out -- you won't regret it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Buy The Print Version, Not The Kindle 30. November 2013
Von Scott Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Don't buy the Kindle version of this book. As good as the book is, the Kindle conversion mutilates it. Section headings frequently appear at the bottom of pages with the accompanying content on the following page. Captions are separated from their illustrations. Special characters are omitted from words (such as naive, which comes out as simply "nae"). Some of the art doesn't download fully. This book has every indication of being run through some automatic conversion application without any proofreading (or even a proof look-at).

Buy the book in print and avoid the Klumsy Kindle Konversion.
