Cartooning is ideal for all kids and adults who love the Lord of the Rings movies, anticipate the Christmas 2005 release of The Chronicles of Narnia film, or have ever read a Harry Potter book. As before, Ben does not merely teach readers how to draw a line here or a circle there; he provides much, much more. Artists will find true insider tips on how to create mind-blowing scenes, awe-inspiring monsters, bigger-than-life heroes, and really incredible, magical landscapes. And because Ben Caldwell knows the fantasy genre inside out, he explains all the complex stories and legends behind each image, too.

Format: Taschenbuch
Cartoons zeichnen lernt man meines Erachtens mit diesem Büchlein nicht, aber man kann sich Ideen und Anregungen holen.
Das Buch ist liebevoll gestaltet und der Autor gibt sich wirklich Mühe Unbedarften, dass Zeichnen näher zu bringen.
Wer ein Grundtalent zum Cartooning hat wird sicher mit diesem Buch sehr zufrieden sein.

A really fun book 20. Februar 2009
Von Parka - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is incredibly fun if you're into fantasy cartooning.

Ben Caldwell has filled the pages with sketches and tips to drawing all sorts of fantasy characters, ranging from heroes, villains, fairies to beasts. The tips given are not just on drawing, but also on developing characteristics and personality into them. That's character design. He talks about everything, from the hair, eye shadows, wrinkles, costumes, postures, smiles and basically anything that you can see.

There's a companion website to the book called Action Cartooning. You can find more art, comics and a community forum.

(More pictures are available on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

One of the best books of its kind. 9. Juli 2006
Von Robert C. O'neil - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Fantasy! Cartooning is simply one of the best books of its kind. I own many books on illustration and cartooning and am the creator of Blue Line Comics. I am constantly looking for new ideas and techniques and have found many fresh ideas in Ben Caldwell's books. One of the best things about his books is that he breaks things down step by step, but doesn't fully complete the drawings... that's your job. Most drawing books will show you the completed work, fully inked and often colored. Mr. Caldwell sets the stage on your sketchbook, it's up to you to decide how it is going to end. Not only is he teaching you the basics in drawing, he's also helping spark your imagination.

Whether you've never picked up a pencil in your life, or if you're a grizzled veteran... you're going to love this book. I also recommend his Action! Cartooning book (available at Amazon). These two companions can make a difference in your work.

Good addition to any artist's library 13. August 2005
Von A. Lung - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Good follow-up book that expands on the foundation set in Action Cartooning. The 2-3 step drawing process of beautifully rendered cartoon drawings of fantasy heroes, villains, and animals/beasts is effectively supported and enhanced with many design tips on how to portray specific traits/moods/archetypes along with concise explanations of their cultural/historical/mythological backgrounds. This book is suitable for beginner and intermediate budding artists as a foundation for self-study and a good source of inspiration for more advanced artists that may find Ben's cartooning approach refreshing and fun as they experiment on their own sketchbooks.

Fantasy! Cartooning review 27. August 2005
Von Wayne Cash - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Ben Caldwell loves to draw! And he loves to tell about how he loves to draw. His new book, Fantasy! Cartooning is a delightful and entertaining look at how to draw heroes, creatures, rogues and maidens.

Ben's style of art is reminiscent of the current(and popular)animated style, and he gives step-by-step instruction on how to construct characters. Along with his drawings, Ben provides annecdotes about the mythos of fantasy and heroes,and just what makes them all so appealing.

It is fun to first flip through the entire book, and drink in Ben's artwork, and imagine how much fun he had putting this book together. It makes you believe that its as easy to draw these illustrations as it is to watch them!

Ben is a master teacher, and takes the time to explain the steps in easy to understand terms, and gives tons of useful content that will benefit the professional and the beginner alike. I give it my highest reccommendation.

Beautiful Book 9. August 2005
Von Brian Huff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Any inspiring cartoonist will benefit from this book. Ben has mastered and combined styles from Disney and Don Bluth, as well as a few other influences tossed in. The renderings are beautiful, and Ben inspires the artists with interesting and different concepts on mythological and fantasy themes. This book is not intended to be a comprehensive volume on cartooning. Fantasy Cartooning is best used in combination with his previous work, Action Cartooning. Also, the book mainly focuses on character design and props. Unfortunately, there's very little on stage and background design.

Fantasy Cartooning is just great to look at, even if you don't intend to learn drawing.

Ben regularly uses Shane Glines' forum. If you want to see more of his sketches and recent work, I recommend stopping by.
