Draw 62 Characters and Make Them Cute is is a step by step drawing tutorial guide for fantasy creatures by Heegyum Kim. Released 19th Nov 2019 by Quarto on their Quarry imprint, it's 128 pages and is available in paperback format.
This appealing book is full of lots of simple tutorials for drawing humorously and alliteratively named characters: Dan the dashing dinosaur, Sandro the sea scholar, Grandma Greta, Lex the Lumberjack, and 58 more. There are some (relatively minor) spelling errors in some of the tutorials. I received an eARC for review, so the errors are hopefully edited out for the release version.
The tutorials and techniques are suited to
beginning artists. There are
step by step tutorials for 62 characters including different
variations and poses for each one. There is a 'you try it' balloon on
each page for reader drawings.
This would make a great gift for would-be artists of all ages. The included tutorials are varied and eclectic with lots from which to choose. I'm not 100% sure how "cute" they actually are. They're certainly not kawaii, but many of them are appealing in my opinion (see cover). There is no introductory technique or materials instruction; the book just includes the 62 tutorials. There is a complete table of contents, so locating individual ones shouldn't be problematic. They're slanted toward line drawings, though colored pens, crayons, and watercolors could certainly be used to enhance the drawings.
Cute book, accessible for everyone.
Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
