The Drawing Lesson

Our teenage son is a very gifted artist.  Although we have not wanted to stifle his personal style and creativity by a formal art class, we do encourage him to learn techniques to enhance and perfect his craft.

This book is really great in that it teaches using a comic book format versus a textbook one.  That makes it very easy to read and follow along with, which is especially helpful with those who would rather draw than read.  Some concepts covered are shading, negative space, starting with a loose sketch, and proportions. 

So, although I chose this book for our artsy son, I would recommend it for anyone who is interested in learning to draw. 

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest opinion.
