How to Draw Cool Stuff Shading, Texture, Pattern, Optical Illusions by Catherine V. Holmes


How to Draw Cool Stuff Shading, Texture, Pattern, Optical Illusions by Catherine V. Holmes is the second book in the How to Draw Cool Stuff series. Inside you will find simple illustrations that cover the necessities of drawing cool stuff. Specific exercises are provided that offer step-by-step guidelines for drawing a variety of subjects. Each lesson starts with an easy-to-draw shape that will become the basic structure of the drawing. From there, each step adds elements to that structure, allowing the artist to build on their creation and make a more detailed image. Starting with the basic forms, the artist is provided a guide to help see objects in terms of simplified shapes. Instructions for shading to add depth, contrast, character and movement to a drawing are then covered. The varieties of texture and pattern that can be included in an artwork offer another layer of interest and depth to a design.

My Opinion: This is the book, to begin with especially if you have not drawn anything before as this explains and shows all I enjoyed learning and practice drawing.
