Finally a new post and it’s a review! I started and finished this book today!! It’s my first “art book” (sort of tutorial) I read and I’m quite happy with it!
Illustrator’s guidebook by 21 Draw
- Genre: art
- Pages: 183
- My rating: 8 out of 10
I like this book so so much!!
I don’t know if it’s actually worth 30$ (or something like that) just for the ebook, but I like the fact that you’re able to see 21 different artists explaining different things! One thing I have to say is that this book is mostly for illustrators; in fact proportions and things like that, aren’t explained with a realistic point of view, but with a more cartoony one.
- About the artists
As I said one of my favourite things about this book is that it has many artist featured. I already knew Loish and Jazza (and I love their drawings!), but now I have a new list of artist I should check! Thanks to this variety readers can also see what is more appropriate with their style or they can also find a way to improve it!
- About the tutorials
This book begins with lines and ends with composition and things like that. If you are considering to buy this book mainly for tutorials I wouldn’t recommend this, in fact there aren’t many explanations on basic things. The book has everything but the first chapters are very short and I think that the most helpful things are the tutorials for composition and creating characters.
I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO...
Everyone who wants to be an illustrator or wants to explore more drawing techniques and styles!
