Learn to Draw

For the slightly more advanced artist, who has conquered drawing cute little animals and cartoon people with basic shapes, comes this series, ready to accelerate you into drawing more realistic, more detailed, and more "wow", kinds of objects and animals, using a similar, but more complex "basic shapes" technique. I have in front of me Cars, 3-D, and Insects, and each of them are equally impressive in their broad scope of various subjects, as well as the very step-by-step, easy-to-follow guidance to allow you to achieve greater realism in your drawings. Each exercise begins with careful observation of the model (the artist's finished product in this case), and then a few sketched lines of the basic shapes upon which you will build your drawing. As the exercise progresses, the basic shape is completed, and more detail is added, paying attention to scale, perspective, and shading. This sounds a little unimpressive, but in Cars, although you start small, the first exercise is drawing a profile of a Dodge Stratus, and it only gets better from here, let me tell you. Soon they'll be sketching Corvettes, Lamborghinis, Dodge Vipers, and any other of their dream cars from any angle, in motion, and with all kinds of fun details. I predict very impressive results here. Insects is much the same, with the same steps taken to result in very (almost too) lifelike creepy crawlies. 3-D is slightly different, and while the end results aren't going to be immediate, in the form of snazzy racecars or lifelike animals, but will give them a sense of how to use proper perspective in every other drawing they create afterwards. Exercises included give them practice with various points of perspective in a wide selection of settings to hone their skills on. This series really makes it seem possible that anyone, with enough practice, can draw well. - Jess
