The Best

Great! Even for this Dummie. I found out I CAN draw. I really enjoyed going through the different levels of techniques.

Funny and helpful book!

I love to draw, and when I got this book for Christmas, I was a little discouraged by the title. Of course, the old saying "never judge a book by it's cover" came into play. I decided to open it up and skim through the pages. This book was GREAT! Drawing for Dummies covers all of the basic and advance techniques of drawing ANYTHING! Catergories it covers include perspective, 3-D drawings, shading, texture, and more! There are picture examples along the way incase you don't know what the auhor is really talking about. There are many exercises from the simple practicing shading, all the way to drawing a VERY REAL looking three demensional teddy bear (listed in easy to follow steps). I really enjoy this book, and anyone who loves to draw or needs to improve, this is the book for you! 5 stars!

So far so good

I am currently working my way through this book and I am not only having a wonderful time, I am learning to draw. The exercises in this book are really made for you to see results and encourage you to move on the the next one. The author gives you a good dose of encouragement as well. I good book to get your feet or pencils wet!

This book is a must!

"Drawing for Dummies" is a great book. I use it to teach my drawing classes. It is easy to follow and is very readable. While some of the books in this series (and others like it) are over-simplified, this one is terrific. It is extremely useful for beginners, but even someone with a lot of experience in drawing could learn from it. I know I did. I would suggest that if you are going to only buy ONE drawing book, then make THIS book your choice.

An Art Course in one book

This is the best book on drawing I have ever seen. I was searching for an art book to help with some aspects of drawing I was having trouble with. This book went far beyond that. It is like an art course in one book. There are many other good art books out there which do the same thing, but the book is laid out in the familiar Dummies style, which is easy to read, and great to use as a reference book. The book includes all facets of drawing: line drawing, light and shadows, patterns and textures, perspective, elements of composition, drawing still lifes, plants, animals, landscapes, people (including babies), cartooning, as well as information about setting up your own studio, developing your own drawing style, crossing over from drawing to painting, as well as other information helpful to artists. The author's style is very entertaining, and she encourages anyone to try drawing. There are tons of pictures throughout the whole book, as well as about thirty projects to try. Whether this is your first attempt at drawing, or an experienced artist, this book is an excellent choice for any artist.
