A book that is friendly to read – that pretty much sums up how the book felt to read. Mr. Rayner’s voice and personality are captured in this short but very useful book. I have been a frustrated at every attempt I tried to draw. This book felt like a friend was at my side to help. I only wished that it were longer. A great book for the beginner. Check out his YouTube channel and you will better understand.
This at first appears to be a really simple, small book but if you go through it step by step it really teaches amazing things about drawing! This book is very suitable for adults and children who are old enough to be serious about drawing. Very good!
His youtube videos are great too. I bought this basically to support him and to have something on kindle for on-the-go goodness.
Easy to read and helped me decide to try testing myself to find out if I have any art abilities as a new hobby.
This is a wonderful book. Shoo knows how to break the information down and simplify it so anyone can apply it and succeed. It’s also a delightful book, one every beginning artist should own.
Shoo Rayner is s really neat and positive person. One of the good ones that makes art fun. And gives in this book great inspiration to draw and just not taking ourselves too seriously.
This is ideal for children.
Great Foundational book
Great book if you’re a young artist, or if you would like to support a great YouTuber.
I liked the book because it was clear with simple examples. It is a bit cartoony, however I think it is still a good start for the beginner. He discusses shape form and perspective.
Really useful and easy book to learn from, enough to get you started in drawing. You also have the added benefit of watchings Shoo’s videos on youtube. Some books can get too in depth and complicated so i end up packing my art stuff away but now im doing these easy drawings and adding watercolour to make them better again.
make drawings more lifelike. A more advanced tutor volume eill be necessary once these skills are mastered, especially for faces. Follow the instructions for reasonably rapid progress.
I can draw! I can draw! I can draw! lol well I can now….
