5.0 out of 5 stars Best instructional book yet! May 2 2012
By Larry - Published on
I can't say enough good things about this book. The information is presented in an easy to read and understandable format. But don't be fooled by the book's simplicity. There is a great deal of knowledge that Christopher Hart passes on about various topics including perspective, symmetry, curves, shapes, and horizon lines. In addition, the instructions on still life's, vehicles, and houses are priceless. He has a section on drawing humans which is worth the price of the book alone. I would highly recommend this book to anybody at any level who wants to learn to draw better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Overall drawing Book Jan. 21 2013
By Pearl B - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Its a good overall book that covers many areas of drawing. It teaches you how to look at an object and put that into easy shape,
like a circle, triangle, box,etc and then connect it all together. He shows how to make drawing as easy as connecting a few dots,almost.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent beginners resource, fun, but a bit mechanical. Oct. 24 2013
By Atilla MullQueen - Published on
Chris Hart is a very good artist and this book is aimed at the beginner. He makes it fun & informative and the book is very well written..

My only problem is the use of all the aides. For me it wasn't very natural. I don't like using or being able to see the use of rulers, protracters, french curves or any tools like that. In my opinion, it just doesn't make for a beautiful drawing. It's to easy to see their use and in many artists opinion, doesn't look right. To each their own...

Don't get me wrong, I use tools as well sometimes, but just not to this extent and I know how to cover them up when I do and so does Chris. This doesn't teach one how to do that. I have many books by Hart and I have fun with all of them...

All in all its a fun way to learn but for someone more serious. One should learn not to rely on all of these tools. The most important thing above all is practice, practice & a lot more practice...:-)

This book was very helpful. I especially liked the section on drawing people, but I have to read more of the chapters that also look interesting, especially the part about how to draw animals. Definitely worth the money.

This book was given to me by my mother a little whiles back. If you are a beginner and have yet to go to art school and the like, this book will be helpful. Chris explains certain concepts, for example, spotting basic shapes in everyday objects in a non-complicated easy to understand way. In the book he touches on the basics of shapes, perspective, the basic materials you will need, some shading, drawing the human body (my favorite), and drawing faces.

-Seriously, other art books tell you you will need this, that, and these. When you are a BEGINNER. Chris tells you this is what you need and what you MIGHT want to get, but it's only optional. No stressed out mess.-

The book has visual examples that you can copy in your sketchbook, but for me, if you actually understand and practice what you're reading it shouldn't matter because once you know you can master his simple drawings, you can get out of your comfort zone and try drawing something NOT in the book. The feeling is so nice.

If you do not like this book, in my opinion, it's because you either became frustrated with some of the drawings(I did at first. Practice till you get it), you expected there to be more "hand holding", or you are super advanced and are too awesome for this book (even if you are awesome it's a good back tract. Get it anyways.)

I've moved on to Marvel and graphic, but this book helped me get my footing. Going to art school helped me stand my ground. Enjoy!
