Reviews for Cartoon Faces: How to Draw Heads, Features & Expressions (Cartoon Academy):

I bought this book to help me with my Character Design class. I needed help developing cartoon/animation faces. My experience is with more realistic drawing. Like all the books I've gotten by Chris Hart, this is a very good, helpful book. I like how Hart covers every aspect of drawing faces and gives plenty of examples of different facial types based on the type of character. I would recommend this book to students of animation, illustration and cartooning.

This book is fun! I drew all the characters. Don't wait for the Drawing Exercises chapter. This whole book is drawing exercises!

Christopher presents a variety of interesting characters and highlights key aspects and teaches you things that you can focus on when drawing faces.

The reviews weren't wrong, this looks good. It's just about faces, but that's a pretty important part of drawing cartoons. And I like the faces more than the ones in the Dummies' guide. Quite a few insightful verbal tips as well.

The book focuses mostly on youthful, clean-shaven faces, but is easy to follow, if you can stomach the groan-inducing wit. The author has a strange emphasis on placing ears so low they are almost on the neck (to make the character look "funny"), but then in the hair section the ears are placed more naturally.
