Ben Caldwell is an excellent cartoonist who teaches us his techniques in this book on how to learn to draw characters. Ben, who has published many children’s novels, has a very particular and striking style that makes his characters have a special dynamism and vitality.

The book explains in great detail and emphasizes the most important elements of design. We can also learn about Ben’s own style, to be able to generate illustrations similar to his.

All the illustrations contain not only the explanation of the most important elements of the design but also small tips that will help us give more character to our character.

Inside we will not find color drawings since everything is very focused on the black and white sketch. In this way we will better assimilate the concepts without the distractions of color.

A really good book for those interested in improving their cartoon character creation. Highly recommended.
