Filled with colorful illustrations and step-by-step explanations, How to Draw an Object is the perfect introduction to the art of sketching. The delightful illustrations are equal parts inspiration and tutorial and are sure to have even the shyest artists reaching for a sketchbook.
The book begins with simple explanations of drawing fundamentals—how to use perspective and draw basic shapes like cubes, cylinders, and cones. From there newly minted sketch artists will learn how to transform those simple components into realistic drawings. A cylinder becomes a many layered wedding cake festooned with frosting while a cone is transformed into a martini, a butterfly net, or a sea shell. Soon readers will see that even the most complicated drawing is really only a collection of these basic shapes.
The book also includes a range of more specific tips and tricks, such as how to mimic the drape of fabric when drawing clothes or adding texture. Soizic Mouton's How to Draw an Object will give anyone who’s ever wanted to learn to draw the confidence to pick up a pencil and begin!
