Walter Foster Jr imprint, it's 64 pages and will be available in spiral-bound format.
Although ostensibly aimed at young artists (6+ years), there is a lot of
really fun and accessible information here for artists of all ages and
levels of experience. The simple and appealing step-by-step line drawn
tutorials will help with confidence building and technical expertise.
The introductory content covers tools and supplies (an admirably short
list), tracing and outlining, using the grid method, and basic shape
drawings. The background drawings on all the pages are adorable and full
color (see cover).
The tutorials (12 different, with lots of characters in various combinations)
are 2-10 pages each of clear step by step drawings to achieve a
recognizable fantasy based elf character along with a stable of supporting creatures (the derpy unicorn slays me every time).
This would make a really lovely rainy day activity or library group
activity for young kids. This would also make a really great
parent/caregiver/babysitter activity for anyone with a youngster in
their lives. Drawing together with your kids makes a lot of great
Very cute book. Good practice for all beginning artists, no matter what age.
