Learn to Draw with Over 1000 Cute & Easy Step-by-Step Illustrations
Drawing is easy with this fun, hands-on book on using a ballpoint pen to create simple, cute pictures. From animals to flowers, food to people, world landmarks to hobbies there is something for all occasions. This book would be ideal for anybody who enjoys the current trend for planners and journals. These simple drawings are perfect to add the personal touch to any type of diary, and a lot cheaper than stickers. While other books suggest pencils this one dives straight in with all types of ballpoint, from simple biros to gel pens and pens that can be used to write on a variety of surfaces. There are some tips for shading and ideas about use of colour, but mostly you just dive straight in and get drawing. Each image has steps showing how to draw it, with none of those baffling-to-beginners jumps from a basic line drawing to a professional shaded picture. These are very simple graphics ideal for the total beginner and would be very suitable for children as well as graphically challenged adults. All kinds of subjects are covered from the ones mentioned above to items associated with holidays, vehicles, alphabets, borders, frames and useful planner icons to mark events or appointments. I love the way you can just do this quickly and simply if you have a few minutes and there are no expensive materials or tools to purchase. This would make an ideal gift to slip into a stocking, or buy to take on vacation. Lots of fun. -- Rachel A Hyde * Amazon *
