Le style graphique simple et efficace de Ben Caldwell est très plaisant.

Ben Caldwell has filled the pages with sketches and tips to drawing all sorts of fantasy characters, ranging from heroes, villains, fairies to beasts. The tips given are not just on drawing, but also on developing characteristics and personality into them. That's character design. He talks about everything, from the hair, eye shadows, wrinkles, costumes, postures, smiles and basically anything that you can see.
There's a companion website to the book called Action Cartooning. You can find more art, comics and a community forum.
(More pictures are available on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
Whether you've never picked up a pencil in your life, or if you're a grizzled veteran... you're going to love this book. I also recommend his Action! Cartooning book (available at Amazon). These two companions can make a difference in your work.
Ben's style of art is reminiscent of the current(and popular)animated style, and he gives step-by-step instruction on how to construct characters. Along with his drawings, Ben provides annecdotes about the mythos of fantasy and heroes,and just what makes them all so appealing.
It is fun to first flip through the entire book, and drink in Ben's artwork, and imagine how much fun he had putting this book together. It makes you believe that its as easy to draw these illustrations as it is to watch them!
Ben is a master teacher, and takes the time to explain the steps in easy to understand terms, and gives tons of useful content that will benefit the professional and the beginner alike. I give it my highest reccommendation.
Fantasy Cartooning is just great to look at, even if you don't intend to learn drawing.
Ben regularly uses Shane Glines' forum. If you want to see more of his sketches and recent work, I recommend stopping by.
