Summary
In recent years, the computer has become an all-important cartoonist's medium, and this practical, hands-on guide shows how to create professional quality digital cartoons. The author opens with advice on setting up a digital studio and gives tips on how to work smart, work fast, and keep operating expenses low. He follows with advice on transforming good graphic ideas into finished work, training the imagination, striving for originality, and developing the technique of self-criticism. Other details covered include planning and writing scripts, writing captions for single-frame cartoons, storyboarding, making preliminary sketches on the computer, and mastering line art, color, and 3D techniques. Finally, he offers detailed advice on how to get one's digital art seen by potential buyers, how to get it published, how to set fees, and the importance of time management and meeting deadlines. Here is a textbook and reference volume for today's cartoonist, with information and advice that will remain pertinent for years to come. Approximately 400 illustrations in both color and black and white
