5.0 von 5 Sternen Sketchbook with a lot of tips 11. Juli 2009
Von Parka - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
David Colman is a character designer specializing in animals. The Art of Animal Character Design is a sketchbook containing his wonderful caricatured animal designs.

This is not the step-by-step instructional art book. However, it does contain a lot of practical tips and points to look out when drawing animals. He workflow is to observe, to think and then to draw. The emphasis is on thinking and he talks about his thought process for the sketches in the book.

His principle is to draw what the animal is doing and draw the character of the animal, rather than just drawing the animal. To quote from the book, it's to draw the 'verb', not the 'noun'. This is the repeating theme throughout the book, and it shows in his examples.

There are a lot of interesting and useful insights provided. For example, he talks about the need to lock down shapes to preserve design integrity so that the animal is still recognizable. There are also tips on how to improve believability through the application of gravity and forces. Other than just drawing animals, he would also caricature humans into their animal form based on their behaviour. There's also a section on creating imaginary animals.

This book is a very good resource to character designers. It's highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Solid Fundamentals with an abundance of Creative Imagination! 29. Februar 2008
Von Jackson L. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Brilliant Designs and just enough concise prose make this the most outstanding Animal Drawing book on the market. I own many current and out-of-print texts that deal with the subjects covered here, but with the exception of Ken Hultgren's classic primer (sought after by every Disney animator of the past 3+ decades)The Art of Animal Drawing- no other book combines the necessary steps to get you to create original character designs without falling back on gimmicks or following current design trends.
I put it up there with Glenn Vilppu's series Vilppu Drawing Manual and the original FA course! Bravo!

5.0 von 5 Sternen All the advice that you'll need to make your illustrations interesting 9. September 2007
Von Chandra Calihan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Make no mistake, this is NOT a book that teaches you how to draw. This is for more advanced illustrators. It's simply a guide filled with wonderful examples and text that expresses how you can characterize animals (the same can be applied to people). All these tips and lessons and examples help you see what the artist is trying to tell you. Its a great book to learn from if you're seriously thinking about learning how to cartoon properly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE BEST BOOK ON CHARACTER DESIGN! 5. Mai 2007
Von A Reader From Southern California - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
David Colman has just put out an amazing book devoted to a specialized area in art known as "Animal Character Design". The Art of Animal Character Design is a much- needed book for those wanting to unravel the mysteries of good design and animal drawing. Packed with stunning drawings from both his personal sketchbooks and professional assignments, David Colman not only showcases his wonderful zoo sketches and character designs, but also gives us insight on how to go about making them. The book reveals the importance of drawing live models at the zoo and the study of their anatomy in order to get believable character designs no matter how exaggerated. This hardbound edition is beautifully laid out in full color and is a must have for any artist, student or professional, in need of guidance and inspiration in the making of good animal character design.

2.0 von 5 Sternen I was dissapointed When I saw the content of the book 6. Januar 2012
Von Ozan Ünlü - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is full of spectacular animal character designs and sketches. If you are realy interested in collecting good art images, just order it.

Do not expect anything but the amazing art works.

It is not an instructural or education book.

The price is another problem. A book from a very talented amazing artist.

The first book which made me ragretfull about my order.
