The children and I all love to draw. However, some of us feel a little less than crazy about the end results of our drawing, so I have been looking for some drawing instructions and tutorials as I have time for all of us. So, when I received the opportunity to review Doodletopia Cartoons: Draw, Design, and Color Your Own Super-Fun Cartoon Creations, I thought it would be a good fit for us in helping us to learn how to draw.
Doodletopia Cartoons is a large highly-illustrated workbook, filled with step-by-step tutorials and examples of various cartoon drawings to inspire and to instruct users. In fact, users are encouraged to write directly into the book as they work, completing drawings and adding shading and colors. Many common cartoon topics, such as animals and expressions, drawing of clothing, cartoon lettering and ridiculous inventions are covered. There are also excellent examples of completing cartoons and drawing the other half of a drawing to provide even more practice.
I really found this to be a fun and excellent workbook for myself and the children to work out of. My only problem is that pretty soon the kids are going to each want their own copies to draw with!
