3.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent, but there are better books out there... 14 février 2010
Par CB - Publié sur
Let's face it - drawing faces is probably the most difficult task for an artist of any skill level and no single book is going to teach you what it is you need to know. As it is, "Making Faces" is a valiant effort but spends too much time on "fluff" that really isn't helpful.

The goal of "Making Faces" is to teach the eager student of drawing how to draw facial expressions - specifically, to get beyond the big expressions like, as the book says, "happy," "sad" and "angry" and be able to communicate more subtle emotions. Here, the author (8Fish, an animation/design/illustration group) attempt to do this via an exaggerated, cartoony style meant to help those interested in comic book and cartoon illustration. The book begins with some words of wisdom (principles behind expressions, the tools of the trade, basic facial features and construction) and then gets into little mini "tutorials" for drawing expressions based on different scenarios (a superhero slugfest, for example, or a first date). Here they focus on one or two characters in each scenario and discuss how to portray their expressions. The final chapter focuses on storytelling, encompassing body language, page layouts, etc.

The Good: There are some great tips in this book, everything from how to slowly build up a drawing with light sketches first and then darken what you want to emphasize, all the way to how to maintain an expression when a character you're drawing is far away (something I've always had a problem figuring out). Also, the methods presented for how to initially construct a face are well presented and easy to learn overall.

The Bad: For all of that, what this book offers is a little too shallow and fast. There are discussions on how to construct draw faces head-on and from profile, but the more difficult and frustrating 3/4 views are rarely, if ever, covered. Additionally, the "tutorials" aren't especially helpful since they don't teach how to apply the lessons learned into other drawing styles. Essentially, the expression being drawn works for the particular character, but the underlying principles aren't clear enough for you to transfer what you learned to your own creative work.

For those just starting out in drawing and trying to learn how to draw faces, "Making Faces" will probably be a good purchase. However, those who already know the fundamentals and want to innovate their methods will want to look elsewhere. Probably the best books on the subject are Facial Expressions: A Visual Reference for Artists (a must for any artist of any skill level), Secrets to Drawing Heads (an ingenious and easy-to-understand book that will revolutionize your artwork almost instantly) and Drawing the Human Head (Practical Art Books). Good luck!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A book after my own heart! 6 décembre 2008
Par Danielle Abel - Publié sur
This book was something I picked up as a quick inspirational read. But I find that no matter how many times I read this book, I learn something new or come up with new ideas for my own art. As a character designer and concept artist working for a professional studio, I'm always looking for ways to improve my designs and come up with the best characters to fit the current project of a competitive industry. This book shows designs of multiple styles and creates a story behind each character to fully test the expressions per personality. With a documented thought process and heartwarming characters, you'll find this book a pleasure to browse through or study. Whether beginner or expert, this book is sure to please!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not much depth to this drawing book 12 mai 2009
Par R. Clark - Publié sur
This was one of several books I bought to help advance my understanding of comics and to give me insights into techniques used by profressionals to help advance my own skills, practically. This book isn't too big on understanding the subject, it's way more about doing. It could go a lot further in explaining what builds up believable characters, body poses, facial muscles, anatomy, how to achieve shades of emotion as opposed to extreme ones. It should also tone down on #1 putting the authors on a pedestal, they could almost be the centrepiece of the book. And #2 There's a lot of superfluous commentary, especially on the pages where the reader is guided through drawing various expressions. However there are a lot of good insights and useful tips interspersed throughout the book. This book is much more suitable for an artist who wants to mimic the style of these artists rather than learn about comics drawing in general.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Terrific instruction on drawing expressions 24 décembre 2009
Par A. Juhasz - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The book uses cartoon faces to show you how to express emotions.
Because expressions are more extreme in cartoons, you learn what to
do easily. I plan to use these skills in making drawings for carving
caricature figures. Neat stuff.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Introduction to one of the most difficult aspects of drawing 17 mars 2009
Par John Joyce - Publié sur
Virtually Maria (Virtual Trilogy)

As someone who wanted a simple guide to creating realistic expressions on my cartoon characters, I was delighted to find this book on Amazon. While many artists (myself included)find the task of conveying emotion in their characters challenging, this book gives a series of simple step-by-step examples of how an entire spectrum of facial expressions can be conveyed in a well laid-out easy to follow style.

While by no means as academically comprehensive as some of the more advanced manuals that go into anatomical detail about the movements of various muscles in the face during different emotions, this book has the one great advantage of being fun to read.

Starting with basic chapters on 'Materials and Equipment', 'Drawing & Sketching', 'Inking and Shading' and notes on the various features of the face - eyes, nose, lips etc. that make up the foundation of expression, this book then proceeds to a series of beautifully illustrated "scenarios" that evoke a range of expressions, with wonderful graphic illustrations to match.

As an introduction to the world of facial expressions, a source of ideas and inspiration, or simply as a great book to flick through and appreciate, I would heartily recommend this book to lovers (and artists) of comics and cartoons everywhere.
