    Seeing a grown man wearing a Robin costume just isn't cool at allThis book is primarily for those who wants tips on creating characters for visual mediums comics animations video games but the tips would also apply to people developing character in written stories as wellStory story story is emphasized a lot after all Colors shapes design that's all here but since a written story will be describing these things yeah I'm going to say anyone can use thisIt's pretty straightforward the types of things you get in a class a chapter on say originality which ends with a homework assignment on taking existing characters you like and putting your own twist on themThere is a character sheet and and example of how it is used probably the only thing that is knocking this down from 5 stars to 4 in my eyes The example character and his sheet is re used in this book uite a bit Useful yup Needed sure However it's abused a bit in a book of this size Had it appeared even one time less oh the space that could have saved and then been used for even advanced tips and tricks

    Didn't really tell me anything I didn't already knowcouldn't figure out on my own And the writing was way too casual for me I ended up skimming through the end

    Very hands on I like it Great exercises and a genius and funny author explains everything fairly simple It's definately worth the money and will most likely get you kick started on your charactersAs he states in the beginning the book is not an instruction manual It must be read cover to cover for us to get the picture and if we fail to do so we will leave with less than those who finished it
