An exceptional, all-in-one resource on basic drawing (non-subject specific), figure drawing, and perspective, with more than 500 color and black-and-white illustrations by both students and professionals, Drawing Essentials: A Guide to Drawing from Observation thoroughly covers the drawing elements that are most important at the foundation level. Award-winning artist, teacher, and author Deborah Rockman explains clearly and in depth what is essential to depicting form and space on a two-dimensional surface. Addressing and illustrating studio experiences that are not effectively dealt with in other drawing books, the text elucidates such fundamental (yet challenging) concepts and methods as sighting, scaling techniques, meaningful and descriptive line variation, observation and development of tonal structure, creation of interesting and instructive still lifes, the conceptual impact of still-life objects, the unique challenges of the human figure and portraiture, basic and advanced perspective systems, brainstorming and the generation of ideas, and the use of photographs as reference. Throughout, the author focuses on the cultivation of observational skills, increased sensitivity, critical thinking, technical refinement, and knowledge of materials. This second edition includes an entirely new chapter on color theory and color drawing (with nearly 50 full color illustrations), a division of the perspective chapter into two (the second covering more advanced techniques), new and updated illustrations throughout, 27 color additions to the gallery of contemporary drawings in the Appendix, and a new Glossary of Art Terms.

How To Kill The Fear Of Drawing: EssentialsThis book is different from the full books of How to kill the fear of drawing: Faces and Anatomy Basically it covers the methods and processes outlined in both of the other books, but it has significantly less examples and demonstrations. It's more like a "stripped down" version of both books combined into one.It's only 200 pages, but even though it has less it's still nonetheless valuable, especially if you don't have access to the other books.User friendly and extremly easy to follow, How to kill the fear of drawing: essentials will help you to discover and refine your artistic potential by teaching you how to simplify the human form and easily map it with 3D guidelines that will make the process of your creating art significantly easier, and you will never get stuck with a flat, lifeless drawing ever again!Perhaps you are in love with creating stylized characters or maybe using reference for a realistic result is more of your thing. Regardless of your style, the lessons within these books will skyrocket your mastery of art in a way that will lead you to killing all of the doubt that exists in your mind concerning your ability to draw.When creating fantastic works of art its not about "mindless" sketching. Your understanding of the construction of basic 3D forms and how they connect to build the human body will have an enourmous impact on your success or failure when it comes to drawing believable characters, and will also determine how many years it takes for you to master the craft of sketching people. Of course, some are more skilled than others, but it is a fact that every artist in the world is either helped or hindered by the methods they use to draw.If you have a firm grasp on the methods demonstrated within these books your sketching process will significantly speed up in terms of quantity and quality of artwork. By practicing and eventually mastering expressions and the creation of mannequins, drawing lifelike characters will become second nature to you, and you will no longer struggle with achieving progress.So take the leap, study these tutorials and apply these methods to your own unique style of drawing. Be courageous, and do whatever it takes to become a better artist!
