HASH(0x9c6ff264) out of 5 stars Want to know how to draw Garfield & Friends, this is the book Jan. 28 2011
By Trustina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book takes you step by step in drawing Garfield and his friends. Every page gives clear instructions, details and are easy to understand. Once you master the basic details, you can take a step farther and create your own scenes, add more facials, accessories to all of them. This book is excellent. My son loves it and is able to draw some really good pictures for his age (7).

HASH(0x9c6ff228) out of 5 stars After a long wait...an excellent surprise Aug. 11 2009
By T.R. Donovan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had been wondering when the folks over at Paws Inc. would be rolling out a "how to draw" book-- seeing as Garfield has had much comic-appeal over the last thirty years.

As an amateur artist myself, I was quite satisfied with the contents of the book. It offers many poses and angles of drawing Garfield. It was also great to see examples of how to draw Jon, Odie, Arlene, Nermal-- and even Pooky.

When I had first heard the book's title I had assumed it would also include the characters from "U.S. Acres," but it does not. That, however, does not take away from the excellence of how this book was put together.

What I found to be the added bonus was towards the back-- which detailed how the daily layouts of the panels are put together, and how it's even colored--using PhotoShop.

This definitely is a must-have for all Garfield enthusiast-- and cartoonists!

HASH(0x9c6ff804) out of 5 stars Just a few poses... March 5 2013

Children (older than 6) enjoy copying the poses, but after a while tend to get bored and became a coloring book instead.
