The Art of Animal Character Design

DavidsDoodles is a great blog to see how David Colman draws. Who is David Colman? You have seen his work but never his face. He is what we call in the industry a character designer, his clients include Sony, Cartoon Network and Disney. David is making the rounds this year at comic-book conventions in both San Diego and Toronto, he is an amazing artist and his book The Art of Animal Character Design is a great reference in any artist’s collection right next to Preston Blair’s animation book.
