Cartoon Faces: How to Draw Heads, Features & Expressions

Make a Face: a funny face! From the world’s best-selling author of how-to-draw books, Christopher Hart, comes this comprehensive and fun guide to drawing cartoon faces. From head shapes to features to hair styles, Chris shows in step-by-step detail how to create funny characters of all types, from mischievous schoolboys to glamorous gals. Cartoon Faces is a must-have for any artist who wants to create eye-catching human faces.

Chris Hart has many published art books although Cartoon Faces is the first of his books that I’ve read/used. I enjoyed this review. The book is simplified, detailed, and fun.

A brightly colored cover: Inside there are short directions/suggestions for a particular cartoon look alongside a step by step drawing example of a character. (thumbnail gallery of all characters are in an index at the back of the book)

Fun book that I’d recommend. A good adition to the home school art curriculum. (most useful in teaching cartooning to grades 4 and up)

1 Comic Book Suggestion: I like the many character heads and facial features included but would like to get directions and drawing examples for just one (1) character with multiple expressions. (same dude when say he’s happy, sad, mad, scared, worried, in love, wants coffee…..You Get It!)
