Présentation de l'éditeur

If you are an artist in search of further knowledge about drawing to enhance your skills, then this is not the book for you. This book is for the individuals who wants to be an artist but know nothing about drawing.

I know how it feels when you want to illustrate an idea but you just don’t know how to start. And when you finally grabbed the confidence to mark that paper but then it turned out really terrible and you didn't want to show it to anyone.

Table of contents



• How to grip a pencil properly

• Warming up


• Starting with sticks and shapes


• Design

• Texture


• Casting shadows

• Hatching

• Cross-hatching

• Scumbling

• Stippling

• Smudging and layering



This instructional manual is for making the ‘two circles’ cat of yours into

something more pleasing and distinguishable, for enhancing that sheep which looks like a cloud with a face, for turning your stick figures into cartoons, and more.

Learn the very basics of drawing easily by following this step-by-step tutorial and realize that drawing is something that is fun to do, and not something that becomes a cause of frustration.

To give you a hint of what this book is all about, look at this short list of tasks that you will learn to properly initiate after reading and following the tutorial.


* Start with a loose sketch.

You need to define the first look of your drawing by sketching it first so it could serve as a pattern for your permanent outlines (defined outlines). If the lay-out of your primary sketch is too far-off from the final piece that you are after, the latter parts are going to be difficult.

* Define permanent outlines.

Trace your sketch to clearly define the contour shape (primary shape) of your drawing, and clean it up by erasing the sketch markings.

* Show/illustrate some texture. Texture contour provides a better portrayal of the shape’s dimension values. The details such as scales, fur or any print and texture should curve and flow with the contour shape of your subject and adjust with it accordingly.

* Draw the necessary details. Use a variety of line thickness and line weight (given pressure on the pencil) to show the right balance to the whole drawing, use thick lines for the parts that should visually dominate the drawing, and less visible and thin lines for the secondary details and parts that merely describe the object/subject’s form.

If you have always wanted to start drawing, this book is an excellent introduction, actually it is a tutorial that shows in great detail how to proceed: You learn what physical exercises will make your hand and arm "lighter", how to grip a pencil properly and how to use its tip and side, how you warm up for drawing. Next is sketching the drawing. You learn how to use sticks and shapes for the creation of fast cartoons, and how to detail your drawing by applying design, texture and shadows, smudging and layering. All instructions are well explained and illustrated, so it is easy to get started with your own drawings.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Anyone Can Learn Reading This Book 30 juin 2013

Really impressed with this book. Not only are the descriptions easy to follow but there are step by step drawings so that you can see what the writer is explaining. Reading and visual exposure is the best way to learning a new skill.

There were a number of different shapes, ideas, techniques and skills to allow a beginner to come up with something quite artistic in just a short while.

The book would suit anyone old enough to read the instructions and upwards. I would even go so far as to say that someone who is not a complete beginner would learn from this book because they may learn techniques that they may not have tried at that point.

Would highly recommend.

I got this for my nephew who doodles all the time. I think he will really enjoy this book - it has a lot of examples to look at and the descriptions are short and easy to understand too - about all most kids would probably read. Some good little tips in here too. Can't wait to let him read it.

I bought this book today and I really lo0o0o0ove it!!! This one is for a real Beginners. Finally I found something that explains so perfectly how to start from A..B..C.. (I bought other books before and they are not really for beginners though they promissed to be so!)

I feel so safe to start now from the Basics. John Davidson did a REAL GREAT JOB on this book. God Bless him! This book is EXACTLY what I need and what I was looking for. I finally found it. -YESSSSS! (Y)

Good tips, clear illustration. I'm a lifetime crafter who has always wanted to draw free hand, not just trace others work. This little book is giving me the skills. confidence to put my picture thoughts on paper or wood, etc.
