Description

Let your imagination shine with 20 Ways to Draw a Star and 44 Other Far-Out Wonders from the Sky and Galaxy. Beautifully illustrated, this inspirational sketchbook will help you learn how to draw anything in the sky and beyond. From satellites, space ships, and asteroids, to crystals, raindrops, clouds, suns and moons, 20 Ways to Draw a Star is perfect for illustrators, cartoonists, doodlers, and anyone who loves to sketch.

This is not a step-by-step technique book--rather, the extra-terrestrial objects in this volume--astronauts, comets, craters, robots, and more– 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 Salli S. Swindell's and Nate Padavick'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 Star!
