The Drawing Lesson: A Graphic Guide to Drawing by Mark Crilly

Book Description

Read This Comic and Start Drawing Today!
For the first time ever, drawing instructor and graphic novelist Mark Crilley brings his easy-to-follow artistic instruction to aspiring artists in the form of a comic book, providing you with a one-of-a-kind how-to experience. In The Drawing Lesson, you’ll meet David—a young boy who wants nothing more than to learn how to draw. Luckily for David, he’s just met Becky—his helpful drawing mentor. Page by page, Becky teaches David (and you!) about the essential fundamentals that artists need in order to master drawing, all in a unique visual format. In panel after panel, Crilley provides lessons on shading, negative space, creating compositions, and more, with accompanying exercises that you can try for yourself. Are you ready to start your drawing lesson today?

My Review

This is a great book for beginners, young people, and for those who want to brush up on their technique, something I wish I'd known and practiced more growing up! 

Like Mark Crilly's videos on YouTube, he makes it enjoyable, fun, and clear to understand. In his book he shows you through the telling of a story/comic of a boy who befriends an artist who teaches him the skills to draw! The illustrations are perfect for this book!

I give this book a 5 out of 5!

I received this book for free from the publisher’s in exchange for this honest and unbiased review as part of Blogging for Books Review program.
