is Japanese for cute, and here is the sequel to Kawaii:
How To Draw Really Cute Stuff (also reviewed on this site).
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
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 favorites 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 color 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.
