Finally! Mark Kistler has done a book for his adult readers! I thought this book was great! One of the things I especially like about this book is that he says you can learn to draw in 30 days or even less, but you have the option of how long you want to take to learn to draw with this book. The lessons are clear and easy to understand, and the bonus challenges are great jumping off points for your own ideas. When you use this book, you have one added bonus, Mark shows you how other sutdents applied these lessons to drawing from the real world. That will give you more ideas of what you can try on your own. Great book! I hope he does another one for adults after this one that will also include the figure and how to use color in your drawings.

I've never had formal education in drawing. I like doodling which eventually turns into something. I really liked this book because it teaches without all the technical writing. The authors puts drawing basics into layman's terms and makes the book very easy to follow. I was amazed at some of the things I was able to create!

I highly recommend this book. Border's Rewards made it cheaper than any art lesson anywhere, and there are 30 lessons in this book. This book is the adult version of Kistler's draw series. It builds confidence with simple shapes and easy to understand instructions. Examples from talented and not so talented beginners encourage you to press on. Most of the exercises can be done in half an hour or less - I did two or three on some days. The no pressure approach is great! Because he teaches the basics of shading and texture, you will show your friends and family drawings that look great and leap off the page!I am almost done (on lesson 27) with this book and feel ready to take on a more advanced beginner's drawing book - Keys to Drawing is my next step.If you think you can't draw, this book will help.One last note: There was an exercise on the author's website that was unavailable, but the book instructs you to do it. I emailed the author and he unlocked the exercise the next day!

I heard of this book from my teacher at scool and she loves art and the class has been practicing drawings from this book and i thought i should buy it on amazon-hardback,even though i have a nook simple touch. I think anybody who loves art or who wants to learn more about art should read this book.

Fantastic Book! This book is fun to read and simple to understand. I hadn't drawn in years and had forgotten the basics of shading and perspective. You start by doing some 2 minute drawings that in my case weren't something I'd want to show off. By lesson 3, I was amazed at what I did. I read his instructions for one of the daily lessons, which are easy to fit into a busy schedule, and learned to draw spheres and add onto your picture with shading and lots of imagination. At first, I thought my drawing wasn't looking too great, but I followed along and was amazed at the outcome. Holy cow! I couldn't believe what I was able to do. Thank You Mark Kistler! I love this book. He gave me back that fun drawing feeling I felt as a kid. Give this book a try, you won't be sorry. Besides, if a picture doesn't look like you want it to, who's going to see it? I bought 2 other drawing books and this is the best and easiest to understand, definitely the most fun. Mark shows you throughout the book how other students did on the same projects. I really liked that. Grab a pencil and a sketch pad and get this book. You'll love it!
