Tom Bancroft is a talented animator, director, character designer, illustrator, and comic book artist. His new “how-to” book on character design, Creating Characters with Personality, is hot off the presses. I just received my copy in the mail and it looks incredible! Admittedly there’s a glut of “how to draw” books on the market, but this one is different in that it focuses exclusively on character design. In addition to Tom’s lessons and samples, each chapter ends with famous character desingers drawing their version of an imaginary cowboy named Dillon (artists include Butch Hartman, Jack Davis, Bill Amend, Mark Henn, Peter De Seve, and J. Scott Campbell). There’s even an introduction by Glen Keane! I’m super excited about this book and encourage you to order yours now!
