This book is an awesome formulas book. It contains a ton of new and effective advances and information about Weight Watchers Freestyle formulas. On the off chance that you have enthusiasm for Weight Watchers get-healthy plan, you can go toss the book to take in more.
Written for kids, but can be read and used by anyone. Simplified shapes and lessons make learning how to draw very easy. At first, I was pretty disappointed when I opened it and saw some of the overly-simplified how-to's and the vocabulary lessons, but reading ahead showed me different. It might be meant for student-use but I found some of the lessons to be very interesting. As adults, we over-complicate so much, and this book teaches us that maybe slowing things down and using just the basics can give very surprising results. Definitely can't wait to sit down and unwind with some of the easier techniques tomorrow!
I have reviewed over 600 products, and this one really stands out. In case you're wondering--No, I do NOT know the author, nor has this review been requested. I thought the book would be good, but not THIS GOOD! There is a good reason why every reviewer is giving this book 5 Stars.▲ I was really intrigued by the intricate cover. This is a hint about the fun journey that is about to start. To open the book, the author provides an extensive section on suggestions for teachers helping the beginning artist. I saw lots of good ideas for encouraging the artist. From the Introduction: "Through Art we have the opportunity to showcase our personal strengths in a meaningful way."▲ Each drawing lesson has 3 parts: "KNOW," "UNDERSTAND," "DO." I thought this was an excellent idea--Theory first, then action. There is also a "VOCABULARY" section to introduce new terms. Excellent idea!▲ As you might expect from an art book, the artwork is excellent. The author provides a step-by-step process for each lesson. Excellent attention to detail. I think even I could learn art this way!▲ Many really fine and creative objects to draw. Some of my favorite drawing lessons: The "Ancient Masks" section, the "Basketball Hoop" drawing, and the "Foreshortened person" lesson. See also the "Back of the Hand" lesson.▼ A few suggestions: I did not see a Table of Contents. That would have been helpful. Also, the book ends abruptly (after the spider web.) Normally, there is a "wrap-up" of some sort.▲ Honestly, Catherine Holmes has produced a MAGNIFICENT book for students and teachers alike. Honestly, I am in awe of the author. The amount of time spent producing this book must have been enormous. I did not see even one advertisement, which is astonishing.✔ HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!♫ A Review by Chris Lawson
A discussion with a friend got me interested in trying out sketching and drawing as a fun and creative outlet. So I spent about an hour researching drawing and sketching ebooks. Since I wasn't actively reading my previous Kindle Borrow Library selection, I focused on Kindle Library ebooks. Of all those, I narrowed it down to 3-4 promising. The "How to Draw Cool Stuff" was one of them. The "Look Inside" preview gave me enough confidence to give it a try, and I'm glad I did!This is a great eBook for two groups of beginners: 1) the instant gratification type: you just got your pencils and sketch pad and you just want to start drawing things. You don't want to learn the history of art right now, you just want to draw. You can flip through this ebook and look at all the drawing exercises. Just draw whatever you feel like, skip whatever may look complicated or uninteresting. In this fashion, I went through the whole book and filled up a giant sketchpad page with small drawings. Okay, drawing attempts is a better description, but my bad art is not what's reviewed here :)The second group of beginners are ones who want to learn more, in an easy to digest format. Each section has a learning section of text followed by the drawing exercises. A smooth and stress free way to learn. The drawing exercises are step by step, except for the last part, where you add the shading and the finishing touches. Those are not explained step by step. This can be a bit jarring, since you go from step by step to the final step being a leap of creative faith. Especially for the uninitiated. The book has a section upfront on shading that can help, but still, some may find this jump a bit e other minor nitpick is that some of the drawings include erasing as part of the steps. I understand this is a beginner's book, but still, some may find erasing as some kind of "cheating". As a workaround, you can look at the steps ahead, and try to draw it without the parts that need erasing. But the whole point of the erasing is that it can help beginners draw things quickly. So we can't have it both ways :)The ebook is comfortable to read on the 7 inch Kindle Fire tablet (or anything larger), and you can zoom on the pictures whether you have your device in portrait or landscape orientation. They are very readable. Since this ebook has both drawings and text-teaching, you can use an e-ink e-book reader to read the text parts. The drawings are more challenging on an e-ink e-reader. Some of them have a semi-usable image zoom option (Paperwhite, classic Kindle with Keyboard), so if you are patient, you can also go through the drawing exercises with those. The tiny basic Kindle does not have image zoom, so it's not very useful if you are doing the drawing exercises (but still fine if you want to read the text parts). Regardless, it is a better experience on a tablet.
I got this for my daughter (who is a budding illustrator), and she was delighted with it. I've had a lengthy perusal myself, and agree that it is chock full of neat tips and tricks that we never got in the 'draw\paint a bowl of fruit' art classes I got when I was a young lad. Well worth the purchase for anyone who has interests that coincide, be it for yourself or as a gift for an 'artsy' relative or friend. Will it make you the next Van Gogh or Picasso? Well, not on its own (although it may assist with practice and dedication), but this also means you won't go lopping off one of your ears as a bizarre gift.
These are good concrete lessons that I use for my toughest class to keep them focused. It also allows me to deal with behavior because I don't have to give more than a minute of instruction, and they are still learning fun and important art skills. Win, win. However, you cannot print from the online version.
This is a great starter book for people who have no idea how to draw. It's also a good guide and refresher for those who do. It has excellent instruction on perspective and shading, and also has great examples of some of the most common tattoo ideas (tigers, skulls, goldfish, etc.) I'm very glad I got it -- I'll keep it in my reference materials and refer back to it as needed.
This is one of the best step by step drawing books for beginners. Anyone can learn to draw by Catherine's simple and precise instructions. Her projects age geared towards younger artists because of the subject matter but the lessons are still valuable for an older person learning to draw. You will learn how to see the basic shapes in everything and use those as your starting place, which makes drawing more accurate (not to mention easier). The projects cover shading, perspective, layering, contouring, detailing, overlapping, facial features, proportion and the list goes on. This book will also be excellent for anyone who likes to do holiday projects, make calendars or greeting cards. There's a lot of variety. Have fun!
This book is a great teaching tool. The author offers tips for everyone from the unskilled artist to those teaching art. I haven't made my way through the entire book, but have already learned so many things about making my doodles more 3D with curving and shading.* A great place to start for an introductory to drawing.* There are plenty of images to reference in this book.* The instructions take you step by step through the process of different drawing techniques.
Lots of exercises. Some of the designs are a bit on the creepy side for me, but they're popular, especially in tattoo art. Things like different kinds of skulls. There are also plenty of more of the kinds of things I like to practice drawing, like animals, faces, lettering styles. And there are a vast number of subjects covered in this e-book - SO much more than I've seen in the other e-books I've read on is book was a very pleasant surprise, and i recommend it to those new to drawing, or those who want to practice their skills.
