My ability to draw has never been impressive so I assumed this book could give me some desired guidance. I am astonished at how well the information regarding drawing is constructed. Such as, the author begins by showing the shapes and how you assemble diverse ones into a person or animal, for example, understanding the shapes you need for drawing a pig.Tips are also given to you while drawing so as not to miss minute aspects of drawing like a beginner like I would do. Whereas, the book contains various assorted drawing activities covering very imaginative exercises. Hereupon, drawing clothing on individuals, finishing the other half of a picture and so much more. Doodletopia is a blast and would be good for anyone of any age if they are interested in learning to draw. My 9-year-old nephew liked it so much he snuck it home in his backpack!
I started drawing character designs for a small animation studio in San Diego, California, when I was still in High School in Los Angeles. I used to drive 136 miles, each way, on the weekends, when I was 16, just for the opportunity to get paid to draw. Cartooning was a magical experience to me.
