Monstrously Funny Cartoons ★★★★☆

vampireLet’s start this review with a quick notice that I am not Picasso. And I felt that attempting to do the drawings in this book would help to showcase how good it is for someone without natural artistic talent. 

Now that that’s out of the way:

zombie-girl2Christopher Hart does a great job talking to both beginner and intermediate level artists. Monstrously Funny Cartoons has step by step instructions, not only for drawing each monster type, ranging from Zombies to Mummies, but also for drawing expressions and bodies. There are even tips and tricks for creating your own aliens and monsters.

Hart walks you through the whole process starting with heads and facial features then moving to body types and postures and ending with backgrounds. The tools and techniques from this easy to follow book will help you not only create monsters but also jazz up your other cartoons.

I highly recommend it for you regardless of your level of artistic talent.
