Description

Product Description

Here is a rare homage to the art of classic 2–D animation and the time–honored method of hand–drawing characters that come alive on the silver screen. The creator of "The Simpsons" and "Futurama," reveals the art of brilliant character design, backgrounds, and prop art in this lavishly detailed handbook that unveils the complex secrets behind the deceptively simple and universally loved Simpsons characters. With creative insights, artists'' sketches, helpful insider hints, and step–by–step instructions, enter the imagination of "master doodler" Matt Groening and receive some professional "how–to" advice from many of the animators and directors who have made "The Simpsons" the longest–running animated show and situation comedy in television history. In our technological era when animation has become increasingly digitalized, this unique handbook records the genesis of some of the most extraordinary examples of the art of hand–drawn animated characters.

About the Author

Matt Groening, the creator and executive producer of the Emmy® Award-winning series The Simpsons, as well as creator of the cartoon strip "Life in Hell" and the animated FOX television series Futurama, is the man responsible for bringing animation to prime time. In addition, Groening formed Bongo Comics Group in 1993 and currently serves as publisher of their four comic books—Simpsons Comics, Itchy & Scratchy Comics, Bartman, and Radioactive Man.

The most comprehensive book you''ll ever find about how to draw characters from a series. The five family members get ten pages each: head and body construction, body poses, facial expressions, hand poses. The back two thirds of the book shows how to draw Barney, Flanders, Moe, Ms. Krabappel, Chief Wiggum, Nelson, etc. The end of the book covers background design from the house interior to Homer''s workstation at the power plant. There are several wonderful gate folds with extra drawings of Krusty, Mr. Burns, etc. The last page in the book is a scene of the family on the couch. The base page is the rough construction drawing. On top of that there are two vellum overlays showing cleanup and ink drawings. On top of the drawings is a final color cel.
Whether you want to learn how to draw the Simpsons or if you''re working on your own animated series, this book teaches you what it takes to create a show like this. It''s pretty much a boiled down version of the show''s bible. It''s worth the full $50, but if you can get a used copy for $10 even better.

I don''t know if I can convey in words how truly incredible this book is. I have been a huge fan of The Simpsons since the Tracy Ullman show and now I can draw my favorite characters. The Simpsons staff artists really put their all into putting this book together with in depth sections on the 5 main Simpsons family members.

If you have an interest in drawing The Simpsons, I couldn''t recommend this book enough.

This book offers a good into drawing many of the Simpsons characters: all the family, plus many of the most seen extras. It has a lot of drawings that can be copied, and is a durable hardback. There are suggestions about how to draw each character consistently that many people would not notice. A great gift for any kid or adult who likes to doodle or draw cartoons.

I bought this for my son who enjoys drawing cartoons freestyle, and also enjoys drawing Simpson''s characters. Having watched them for a few years, he''s got used to drawing them, but this book takes things to an extra level with most of the characters in there, and sections on how to draw and perfect things such as facial expressions and the likes. My son is 10, and has been able to follow the steps to drawing each character, despite it initially looking like quite an adult-orientated book. It''s very well laid out, clear, and would appeal to anyone who likes drawing cartoons and/or the Simpsons.
