Draw 62 Things in Nature and Make Them Cute: Step-by-Step Drawing for Characters and Personality - For Artists, Cartoonists, and Doodlers


 Draw 62 Things in Nature and Make Them Cute is a new volume in the Draw 62 Things series - this one is by Heegyum Kim. Released 3rd Nov 2020 by Quarto on their Quarry imprint, it's 128 pages and available in paperback format.

This is an appealing book filled with simple tutorials for drawing nature inspired anthropomorphic creatures - fruit characters, leaves, cartoonish birds, clouds, leaves, flowers, bugs, and more. 

The tutorials and techniques are suited to beginning artists. There are step by step tutorials for 62 beings with 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. 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.

Four and a half stars, rounded up for the bugs - the rhino beetle is adorable and really appealed to me for some reason. He keeps popping up on my notes, my planner, rocks I paint, the chalkboard in my lab, everywhere.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
