The Art of Cartoon

 By: Deepak Saxena
Humor is a very important part of life. It makes our life a pleasant experience. Cartoon is an art form that relies heavily on humor to express various emotions and views.

Humor is the ability to see funny or contradictory aspects of life and make people laugh. Jokes, cartoons, satires and comedies are forms of humor that entertain and enlighten people. Humor has an amazing ability to make people see a unique aspect of the situation without using harsh words. People are fond of humor and they do not mind if any harsh reality is shown through humor. The importance of humor becomes more significant in today's world of political correctness, where people do not like to say anything against anyone even if the person is doing something wrong. Humor is a polite and interesting way of showing disapproval of a man or his actions, without seeming rude.

Cartoon is an art form that describes a funny aspect of a situation using drawing. Cartoon drawing requires lots of practice as well as thorough knowledge of the situation being portrayed in the art work. People who draw cartoons as profession or hobby are known as cartoonists. A cartoon is a funny illustration of a person or a situation. When physical characteristics of a person is shown using a cartoon then it is known as a caricature. People drawing them are known as caricaturists. Drawing a caricature requires a lot of practice as it is not easy. To draw caricature of a person first of all it is important to study the facial characteristics of the subject. They find out the prominent features of the face to exaggerate in the caricature.

In today's world, the art of cartooning is used in various ways. Newspapers use political cartoons, drawn on political current affairs. Comic strips are also published in newspapers that have a set of characters shown in different situations in each new strip. There are animators who use computer software to draw and animate cartoons for making animation films. Even advertising agencies use cartoon to portray any funny situation in an ad campaign.

The search for top 100 best Marvel villains of all time can be compared to an epic journey. The initial idea was to come up with a top 10 list. A top 10 list was quickly thrown away because limiting this list to 10 would be an injustice. The top 10 transitioned to a top 25, then to a top 50, then it was clear a top 100 was needed due to the sheer number of villains to choose from.
Psychologically complex and realistic characters are not exactly what one would consider as "old traditions" in the comic book industry. Indeed, during the earliest decades, the concept of a "flawed hero" was discarded in favor of the "Superman" ideal. However, as readers became more discerning and Stan Lee's Marvel Comics began to create more realistic heroes, things had to change. Superheroes had to progress from the simplistic motivations and personalities of the old days, adopting increasingly realistic and complex identities. Quite arguably, the most psychologically complex casts of characters to have ever been created is the so-called "Bat family" of DC Comics.
In a world where there isn't exactly enough time for all the things people have to do, almost everybody still finds themselves hooked to a certain hobby. Collecting baseball cards or stamps, buttons even, knitting, wood crafting, landscaping, what have you. And in this long list, comic book collection seems to place itself amongst the top.
