Kawaii: How to Draw Really Cute Animals
RETURN TO PLANET CUTE!!!
Kawaii: How to Draw Really Cute Animals teaches you how to draw almost 100 different creatures in an adorable manner. Don’t believe seagulls and stingrays can be cute? Think again!
You don’t need any specialist tools or materials to start drawing cute stuff: all you need is a biro or marker pen, then you’re ready to go!
In her latest book, artist and illustrator Angela Nguyen starts by teaching you the essential techniques of kawaii through quick and easy exercises on the basic shapes, effects and style. From there, jump straight into drawing the myriad beasts – small and big – you can find inside the book, from household pets to the exotic animals in the seas and skies.
The clear and easy-to-follow step-by-step diagrams are great for visual learners, and make following the instructions for your kawaii critters a breeze. As a brand new addition to this series, interactive pages have been included to encourage you to get drawing straight away, and practice alongside Angela’s examples.
A perfect book for beginners – add cute-appeal to your furry ‘n’ feathered companions in no time at all!
Other title in the series is the incredibly popular Kawaii: How to Draw Really Cute Stuff
'Kawaii' is Japanese for cute, and here is the sequel to Kawaii: How To Draw Really Cute Stuff. In this book you can find out how to draw all kinds of animals in a cute manner and discover how to make your drawings look this way. You only need the minimum of drawing materials to draw anything in this book and you probably already own them. You also don't need to be an artist as it is surprisingly simple to draw in this style; far more so than in the style associated with manga. The introduction explains quickly and simply with examples how to make your drawings look cute and appealing. The rest of the book contains the projects, which are divided into where the animals are found. There are pets and common wild animals, ones found in jungles, forest/grassland, water and on the farm. Choose from favourites like cats, dogs, penguins, owls and even dinosaurs or try a more unusual creature like a red panda, stingray, platypus or armadillo. Each animal is shown in several simple steps over two pages together with a fact about it and several poses to try. Unlike the first book this one is more of a workbook as the second page of each project has a drawing to finish and colour in yourself. This is a great way of practising and creating some scenes without having to wonder what to draw. Learn the cartoon shorthand of depicting moods, movement and more - it is surprisingly easy and fun, suitable for all ages and levels of art experience and rather addictive. It is also a great way of making original and personal greetings cards or any other decorative project and like its companion volume one for the keeper shelf. -- Rachel Hyde * myshelf.com *
