Book Description

Oct. 1 2013 20 Ways
 
This inspiring sketchbook is part of the new 20 Ways series from Quarry Books, designed to offer artists, designers, and doodlers a fun and sophisticated collection of illustration fun. Each spread features 20 inspiring illustrated examples of 45 themes–black dresses, summery hats, stylish shoes, faux fur coats, and much, much more–over 900 drawings, with blank space for you to draw your take on 20 Ways to Draw a Dress.
This is not a step-by-step technique book--rather, the stylized dresses are simplified, modernized, and reduced to the most basic elements, showing you how simple abstract shapes and forms meld to create the building blocks of any item that you want to draw. Each of the 20 interpretations provides a different, interesting approach to drawing a single item, providing loads of inspiration for your own drawing. Presented in the author’s uniquely creative style, this engaging and motivational practice book provides a new take on the world of sketching, doodling, and designing.
Get out your favorite drawing tool, and remember, there are not just 20 Ways to Draw a Dress!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome series! Dec 13 2013
By Shelby TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love these books. They are of high quality. The texture of the cover is fascinating and the binding is perfect for a drawing book. It lays perfectly flat. The images within are fun and varied. They give me a great jumping off point and help me past creative blocks. Note: This isn't a step by step, but it provides examples and those examples are simple enough that you won't need step by step directions.

Makes it easy and fun to sketch dresses and accessories without feeling like a loser. I love to design and now my inner critic has settled down more than I knew possible. Get Zentangle and Tangled books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gift for My Niece Dec 27 2013
By Marie Lynch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
She wants to be a fashion designer but complained to me that she cannot draw! This book contains simplified drawings of fashions to stimulate her imagination with blank pages she can sketch on. It provides a language she can use to communicate designs without several years of anatomy and drawing classes! How perfect was this birthday gift for a 13 year old aspiring to be a wedding dress designer!

This is a little on the pricey side, but I would buy it again knowing what was in it and the cost. It has many more ideas in it than I was expecting.
