Description

Artists won't believe their eyes as they learn to draw with photorealistic detail.

The Art of 3D Drawing shows artists how to transform simple pencil sketches into jaw-dropping, photorealistic masterpieces. Through a variety of step-by-step exercises and demonstrations, pencil artists learn to take their drawing skills to a whole new level, beginning with a review of the basics, including perspective, shading, rendering textures, and building dimension. Practice lessons then demonstrate how to draw a range of subjects in realistic detail, from food and candy wrappers to animals and portraits. Finally, aspiring artists learn to use color media, including pencils and airbrushing, to add even greater dimension and realism to their artwork to complete their three-dimensional masterpieces.
