Unicorns have never been so popular and now 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
you cannot find a good range of drawing materials locally
for a list of suppliers.
