Unicorns have never been so popular and appear on everything. Learn how to draw your own with this latest entry in the How To Draw series. There are twenty-six different ones to tackle in here, each one consisting of seven steps. The first five show how to build up the picture from simple shapes, adding new details in each stage (shown in red). Finally, when you have inked in the outlines, you can try some tonal shading, or produce a colored image. How easy you find the last two steps will depend on your prior experience. Building up the basic drawing is easy, but in order to complete the last two, you will need some previous art knowledge such as how to shade and use your chosen color medium with proficiency. I would recommend this book to improver artists who have mastered the basics but want to depict unicorns. Draw them with wings, fishy tails, zebra stripes, calves, and even a top hat. Once you have mastered the basic outline you can make them fly, rear up, swim and leap. As with all the titles in this series, commercial use is prohibited, but you can put your artwork on anything for personal or charity use.

If you cannot find a good range of drawing materials locally try for a list of suppliers.
