Cool Things to Draw eBook
Drawing visual reference at your finger tips
This visual reference book will help you... • Draw still life's with set lighting and shading so that you don’t have to worry about your drawing changing from day to day • Draw people, animals, and objects you would never be able to see in real life. Over 100 ideas are included • Gain a deeper understanding of drawing more realistically through practice I don’t get it. Isn’t this just a book full of pictures? It has been proven the best way to learn how to draw is by drawing from visual reference. Ideally an artist would draw from a still life or a live model but as you know these change over time. The benefit of drawing from photographs is that the lighting doesn’t shift and a person can hold the same pose or expression without getting tired. Also photographs allow you to draw things you would never be able to see in a real environment. Many drawing books teach children how to draw through a series of steps. The problem I see with these books is they focus on the steps to make the author’s drawing and not the original subject being drawn. So you are left with a copy of their drawing without being able to compare it to what they had originally referenced. Cool Things to Draw™ contains over one hundred ideas you can take wherever you and your sketchbook go. The ideas contained in this book will challenge your drawing skills as you practice perspective, value, depth, composition, and photo realism. Sound fun? Then go grab your sketchbook and flip through the pages to find something to draw. Draw what you see and not a series of steps Drawing from visual reference helps the artist develop their own techniques and ability to draw what they see. Eliminating the need to find a particular drawing tutorial to fit a drawing idea you have. A wide variety of ideas will keep you drawing longer The variety of ideas will keep you drawing for hours. You will be able to practice drawing things like a snowboarder, a horse, a lily pad, and many more! Zoom in to see every detail The great thing about digital books is the ability to zoom into images to take a closer look. Now you can make sure you capture every detail in your drawing.
