Well, Don Jardine can help all of us who have tried, without success, to create cartoon characters that “come to life” for the reader. All too often, beginners will go to one of two extremes; either by drawing, characters that have no personality whatsoever or by drawing characters that are so cartooned that they almost repulse the reader. And although we are surrounded by hundreds of faces every day, it is amazing how difficult it is to put all of the strange eyes, noses, mouths, and head shapes that we see together. And even as we progeess, it becomes still more difficult to create characters who can express a variety of emotions. Don Jardine can help you over these initial, difficult obstacles. He has the answer to the question, “How do I begin?” harks ft dhol, Charles M. Schulz (1922-2000) (Creator of *Peanuts”: Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Sally, Peppermint Patty, Woodstack, and Snoopy!)

And although we are surrounded by hundred of faces every day, itis amazing how alficutt itis to put all of the strange eyes, noses, mouths, and head shapes that we see together. And even as we progress, it becomes still more difficult to create ‘characters who can express variety of emotions, Don Jaraine can help you over these initial, cificuit obstacles, He has the answer to the question, “How Do | Begin?” Aorta th, debuts, Charles M. Schulz (Creator of "Peanuts": Chattie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Sally, Frieda, Peppermint Patty, Woodstock and SNOOPY!) OBJECTIVE The objective of this book is to help you have FUN creating CARTOON CHARACTERS. If you enjoy this ‘material, you will want fo spend alot of time developing your own cartoons. That's GREAT There is NO SUBSTITUTE for PRACTICE, ‘The more cartoons you daw, the better they will become. And the better they become, the more you will enjoy cartooning. And the more you enjoy I, the Tore you will want to craw! It becomes @ HAPPY MERRY GO "ROUND! If you ae interested in cartooning as a career, you will ‘be pleased fo learn that a GOOD cartoonist hos many options: ftee lance, advertising, television, marketing, Indust. education, entertainment, and publishing — to name a few. And if you can eam a living doing something you would nomally do for fun, you will have much happier lite! Just think about it; When you turn on the TV you see familiar cartoon characters cavorting across the screen... commercial comes on and there are more cartoon charocters..you pick up @ box of cereal andiits decorated with cartoon charactess.you want a new ‘shirt, but find it difficult to decide among the many which feature cartoon characters..you go to the store to buy a greeting card for a special occasion and it's decorated with cartoon charactes..then you pick up magazine or a newspaper and what catches your eye? MORE CARTOON CHARACTERS! We are @ cartoon-conscious people. We grew up with Chartie Brown and Snoopy. Blondie and Dagwood, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, Bugs Bunny, Beetle Balley and the Fintstone's. They, and other popular cartoons were “fiends” of ours — and stil re! ft you want to be a participant in the WORLD of CARTOONING, you will heed this advice: Study ar lean to draw well, research cartooning, practice, and, most importantly, PERSEVERE! You will never make it without ‘determination, so keep trying! Never be satisied with the fist effort, Most cartoons can bbe Improved upon. But don't become discouraged! Cartooning is similar to penmanship — no two people write alike and no two people DRAW alike. And every ‘cartoon you craw is another step in the development of Your own unique style, Finally, REMEMBER what you leam and USE IT — always! Good Luck! Don Jardine, PhO. TOOLS AND MATERIALS Allyouteally need to begin drawing cartoon characters is c pencil and some paper. Almost any pencil will do, ‘and inexpensive paper such as newsprint, bond or typing paper is fine. As you progress there are many tools which make cartooning easier, more fun. and more professional looking. Buy them as you need them, PENCILS — Graphite pencils are the most popular and have the widest range of application, but there are several other types of pencils you might also want fo iy These include carbon and charcoal pencils which blend well and give a wide ronge of values, conte ‘pencils, and wax pencils (most colored pencils are of the wax variety), You should try an assortment of pencils to determine your preference, but here are a few things to consider Harc-leaded pencils (the H Series) hold their point better than soft-leaded pencils (the B Series), The harder leads don't break as easily and the pencil work doesn't smear as readily, The disadvantages fo the harder leads ‘are that they moke lighter lines. they are often dificult to erase, and they sometimes “gouge” the drawing surface. Softeaded pencils make darker lines, are easy to erase when applied with light pressure, and are less ‘apt to damage the work surface, but they must be sharpened frequently, the leads are more likely to break. and the pencil work smears quite easily many sizes. There are also alphabet templates to help you with your lettering.) For making curved lines there {re french curves and flexicurves (spines that can be shaped fo most contours) PENS — Drawing pens range from firm to extremely flexible, Technical pens are very popular (use the fiber nib, NOT the felt nib). Most of the cartoons in this book were done with a technical pen, Experiment and ‘choose the kind that works best for you. BRUSHES — Miony cartoonists prefer brushes over pens. They are difficult to master, but they make beautiful, ‘expressive lines. If you decide to try brush and ink, buy the BEST QUALITY brush you can afford. A red sable #3 watercolor brush Is favored by professionals. DRAWING SURFACES — There is a wide vatiely of drawing Papers and boards available. These include newsprint, bond paper, tracing paper, bristol board, andiillustration board, The latter come in hot press (a smooth surface, best for detailed ink drawings), and cold press (a regular surface, used for many media). There are a few specialty surfaces available also; ask your art supply dealer if he has any examples of artwork done on these surfaces. ERASERS — A kneaded rubber eraser is preferred. Unlike the ort gum eraser, it leaves no “crumbs,” and it doesn't stain or damage the work surface. DRAWING GUIDES — Drawing guides enable you to Grow straight lines, accurate cicles and ellipses, and specific curved lines, For making straight lines there are bevelled rulers, triangles and squares (the plastic, see- thru type are prefered). To make circles and ellipses you can purchase plastic templates which come in SHADING SHEETS — Shading sheets are used to create interest ana provide contrast in cartoons. They come in many pattems and textures. To use, place one over the desired area and lightly rub it down (the backs ore covered with a light adhesive, or wax). Then, carefully cut around the area with an exacto knife or a razor blade, Peel away the areas vou don't want covered ‘and it's complete! This takes a it of practice to perfect, bbut the pattems and textures con really add to your cartoons. DRAWING CARTOON FACES Hete are four basic oval cartoon faces with assorted types of eyebrows, eyes, noses and mouths in various locations. Below each basic face is a male and a female cartoon face, each with features related to the basic cartoon face above. Examine the cartoons which resulted from each of the basic faces. Notice the addition and varieties of hair styles, ears, moustaches, freckles, earrings, the necklace, the bow tle, et cetera, aan 8 AN EASY METHOD... For Drawing Cartoon Faces Begin by drawing a variety ofhead shapes. Then create some hair styles. Try drawing an assortment of eves, ‘ears, noses, mouths, and eyebrows. Then CHOOSE and USE! By drawing different head shapes with various features you can create HUNDREDS of characters. I's fun! Try it Each of these female cartoon faces wos created by fst drawing an oval, then drawing the features selected from page 5. I'S FUN! Draw a few head shapes on scratch paper, then drawn features of your choice. The various combinations drawn in different sizes ond in different locations enable you to create literally THOUSANDS of faces, And, you can add more exagger- ‘ated eyes, noses, mouths. ond hairstyles for an INFINTE number of cartoon faces TRY Ml You may find it interesting, even fascinating, to dupii- cate the faces above in different head shapes and with different hair styles. Using tracing paper. trade features and draw them In different sizes and in different locations. ifs easy — and it works! These male cartoon faces were drawn using the same method used for the female faces. It doesn? take a lot of imagination to change the features in any head shape. or to substitute a different hair style. Use @ 38 graphite pencil on scratch paper o* tracing Paper ond copy some of these heads. Then draw in features from other cartoon faces, or from the features ‘on page 5. Draw the eyes larger or smaller, higher or lower, closer together or farther apart. Add glasses, freckles, a moustache, a beard, longer sidebums or a bubble gum bubble. Experiment, EXAGGERATE! Every NEW combination you use to produce a cartoon face makes it YOUR cartoon. YOU can develop THOUSANDS of mais and/or fernale cartoon faces — young and old. The more faces you craw, the easier It will become, PROFILES AND THREE-QUARTER VIEWS Develop the habit of REALLY LOOKING at the many —EXAGGERATE! That is the way to develop your own people you see every day. Each, obviously, has two cartoons. ‘eyes, a nose and a mouth — but, except for their hair, ‘what makes them DIFFERENT? Their age? Size?

Simplicity, strangely enough, is often the mark of o true professional. Note the works of today’s TOP Cartoonists. See how SIMPLE they recily are. 3 With experience and practice you will draw fester. The resulting line. a confident line, will denote Professionalism. Don't be concemed, at fist, about technique, That will develop with time, 4, Remember, a unique idea is often more important than a unique cartoon, 6. A professional cartoonist always has a number of examples (a potttolio) to show prospective em- ployers or customers. Published cartoons make the best examples, but if your work has never been Published, just use some of your best drawings. PAIL AND JUAN These two cartoons demonstrate the Importance of the background in your ‘artwork. In the fist cartoon, a shading screen was applied to the pail fo contrast ‘with Juan's white trousers, BUT, this makes the pail almost “disappear” into the background, In the second cartoon, you can see how the plain background of the pail is more effective and has better Contrast. A graduated shading screen was used for the second cartoon for ‘added interest To make a good comparison, squint your eyes and look at the two cartoons. This helps to eliminate unnecessary detail so you can identify the most important ‘elements of the cartoons. Notice how the second "Pail and Juan’ is much better than the frst 6 A second color adds A LOT to any cartoon, Professional masking material such as rubylth or ‘amberith (the latter is easier to soe through) is BEST, Just place a sheet of either one over your black and white cartoon, then cut and peel away all areas ‘except where color is desired. 7.

An easy way to transfer a drawing to another sheet of paper Is to cover a shest of tracing paper with graphite, then place it pencilside down between the drawing and the fresh piece of paper. Trace ‘over the drawing with a hard-lead pencil ond the graphite on the back of the tracing paper will transfer to the new paper — just like carbon paper (Dut the graphite is easy fo erase, if necessaiy). 28, Keep a file of reference material, It's well worth the effort 29.
