Hi everyone I'm a bit of a lurker on CA but I love the resources available, but the thing is I've been looking for some tips on cartooning and I'm having a bit of trouble finding them.
I don't want step by step "how to draw bugs bunny" I want to learn the principles that make his design great so I can apply them to my own designs. One thing I really struggle with is making my character's personality shine through their design.
To use an obvious example, everyone knows a broad chin and a boxy chest will make a character look strong but when it comes to more subtle methods of character design I'm completely clueless, how do you exaggerate the features on a face to make a character look cruel yet suave or use the shapes that make up the body to convey intelligence and eccentricity?
So to get to my question, would anyone be able to tell me of tutorials, books, advice or any kind of resources that would be helpful?
Thanks in advance to anyone who took the time to read this far in and offers help
