Simpsons Comics / Simpsons Super Spectacular # 13
« On: February 23, 2012, 06:16:32 PM »
A Simpsons parody of The Watchmen graphic novel. And the downside is that you really got to know the original to understand many of the jokes in this issue. I am not sure having seen the movie will help much.
But if you know the original this is a big mess of jokes. Sometimes a bit to much of a mess, but you get loots of jokes with references to booth Simpsons and Watchmen. The story is in some places rather complicated, and holds several surprises.
Drawings is only slightly off canon. And there is a great number of Simpsons characters put in new costumes.

Book review.

http://www.amazon.com/Simpsons-Handbook-Secret-Tips-Pros/dp/0061231290

If you want to draw Simpsons characters, this book is a great help. It starts out with a few basic tips about how to organize your workspace. And then on to the actual drawing.
First up is how to draw Homer. You get some standard drawings and a lot of tips about how to get the right proportions on your drawings. Have you ever seen those sketches where there are a lot of blurry extra lines behind the actual drawing? This book explains how these lines help make Homers head the right size.
Also there is some fun descriptions about how to see the deferent parts of the drawing, as common day object. Homers body can be seen as a light bulb. ;-) And there are small hits on how to get some details right.
After the basics there is several pages filed with details. Like a page full of deferent face expressions. All of them with the help lines visible, so you can compare with the first pages. There are also a semi transparent page to show how the finished drawing compares to the one with all the help lines.
After Homer the other main family members get the same treatment.
After the main family a bit more than half of the book is filled with basic descriptions about how to draw many of the supporting characters. Now and then a character gets a few more pages to put in some fun details. But you do feel the lack of details on some characters.
Lat there is a few pages on how to make the right perspective on the background. And a bit of other extras.
Al in al a book with a lot of useful tips and trick if you are serious about drawing Simpsons characters the official way.
