Runner Up for ages 13-18
This is one of the most educational books on drawing I have ever read. I was so happy to see Jamie included it her list of winners.
Disney artist Denise Shimabukuro packs a lifetime of study and knowledge into every page of this hefty volume. As a former Disney artist myself I found it very helpful. It has given me a fresh view of my own work, and a greater appreciation of all the aspects of drawing. Students with an interest in animation, children’s book illustration, movie making, or comics will find this book indispensable and instructive. This book is a must-have for any aspiring artist, or even the seasoned professional, in any medium. The foundations of drawing are all here, plus reminders of the value and power of observation.
Even readers with no interest in learning to draw will learn to see the world in a more engaging way. This book will be part of my personal collection for years to come.
Thanks, Denise, for an educational and inspiring book.
