If anyone wants a PDF copy of "Cartooning With The Simpsons" (Matt Groening's book; it has a number of model construction tips and guides for each character), PM me or e-mail (, and I'll be happy to share (I can only e-mail it to you, since I don't have a website)

I think i got just the same PDF from hangover.

I've looked at it and i admit it's very interesting for the tips it gives, but as any "professional" tutorial, i think it mixes up too much stuff in too little time, and it gives TOO MUCH for granted (especially for a starting artist). Although i admit it would be pretty impossible to make the "perfect tutorial" as i mean it without turning it into a full scale art school.
