Learn to Draw - Manual Drawing - for the Absolute Beginner If you are an artist in search of further knowledge about drawing to enhance your skills, then this is not the book for you. This book is for the individuals who wants to be an artist but know nothing about drawing. I know how it feels when you want to illustrate an idea but you just don’t know how to start. And when you finally grabbed the confidence to mark that paper but then it turned out really terrible and you didn't want to show it to anyone. Table of contents INTRODUCTION GETTING STARTED How to grip a pencil properly Warming up SKETCHING Starting with sticks and shapes DETAILING Design Texture SHADING Casting shadows Hatching Cross-hatching Scumbling Stippling Smudging and layering Smudging Layering This instructional manual is for making the ‘two circles’ cat of yours into something more pleasing and distinguishable, for enhancing that sheep which looks like a cloud with a face, for turning your stick figures into cartoons, and more. Learn the very basics of drawing easily by following this step-by-step tutorial and realize that drawing is something that is fun to do, and not something that becomes a cause of frustration. To give you a hint of what this book is all about, look at this short list of tasks that you will learn to properly initiate after reading and following the tutorial. Tasks: Start with a loose sketch. You need to define the first look of your drawing by sketching it first so it could serve as a pattern for your permanent outlines (defined outlines). If the lay-out of your primary sketch is too far-off from the final piece that you are after, the latter parts are going to be difficult. Define permanent outlines. Trace your sketch to clearly define the contour shape (primary shape) of your drawing, and clean it up by erasing the sketch markings. Show/illustrate some texture. Texture contour provides a better portrayal of the shape’s dimension values. The details such as scales, fur or any print and texture should curve and flow with the contour shape of your subject and adjust with it accordingly. Draw the necessary details. Use a variety of line thickness and line weight (given pressure on the pencil) to show the right balance to the whole drawing, use thick lines for the parts that should visually dominate the drawing, and less visible and thin lines for the secondary details and parts that merely describe the object/subject’s form.

To draw a caricature is to simply draw an image that is very distinguishable to your model/subject’s identity with or without being photographically identical. In early forms of this genre, the type of figures used was animals to represent a certain person. A painting or any type of artwork cannot be called a caricature if the piece does not involve an actual person, because involving a real person as a model is the critical part of this genre. TABLE OF CONTENTS Introduction Quick ink sketches • Caricature of a Child • Head in Profile Establishing Tones/Shade Values Drawing a Face in a Proper Proportion Drawing Caricatures with a Pencil • Using Simple Reference Lines • Starting with a Facial Feature Exaggerating Proportions Caricature of a Girl - Amplifying facial expression Caricature Samples So start taking pictures of your friends or ask for a willing volunteer to be your model and begin drawing caricatures. If nobody is willing to be your model, it’s okay. I have few pictures of my friends here and they are more than willing to be models for practicing, mess up their facial features. It’s totally fine, they don’t care. Follow the steps in this book and become a caricature artist in a short amount of time. Learn how to draw caricatures easily without any formal training. This book will guide you how faces take form step by step, how to base it on a model and produce a caricature portrait with ease. This instruction booklet will teach you how to draw caricatures quickly with the use of a simple pen and marker, and then move on to using pencil and start conveying shade values and produce realistic portraits with cartooned bodies. Good luck and I hope you enjoy reading!
