"How to Draw Cool Stuff: Basics, Shading, Texture, Pattern and Optical Illusions" is the second book in the How to Draw Cool Stuff series. Inside you will find simple illustrations that cover the necessities of drawing cool stuff. Specific exercises are provided that offer step-by-step guidelines for drawing a variety of subjects. Each lesson starts with an easy-to-draw shape that will become the basic structure of the drawing. From there, each step adds elements to that structure, allowing the artist to build on their creation and make a more detailed image. Starting with the basic forms, the artist is provided a guide to help see objects in terms of simplified shapes. Instructions for shading to add depth, contrast, character and movement to a drawing are then covered. The varieties of texture and pattern that can be included in an artwork offer another layer of interest and depth to a design. These elements are necessary to indicate the way something looks like it feels in a work (texture) or creating the repetition of shapes, lines or colors (patterns). Illustrated optical illusions involve images that are sensed and perceived to be different from what they really are, showing examples of how the mind and the eyes can play tricks on each other. All you need is a piece of paper, a pencil and an eraser and you are ready to draw cool stuff. Once the drawing is complete, it can be colored, shaded or designed in any way you like to make it original. Following these exercises is a great way to practice your craft and begin seeing things in terms of simple shapes within a complex object.

Sketch Your Art Out

To peek into the sketchbook of an artist is a rare treat. Seeing the bones, the build, and the body of work behind some of your favorite works is akin to seeing how a magician creates an illusion--the mirrors behind the magic. Among the many skills of an artist--whether a painter, designer, or illustrator--none is more basic and yet essential than sketching. To know how to translate your vision to the page allows for flashes of inspiration to build and become tangible creative expressions. Art books tend to exist on a spectrum between "picture books" and formulaic "how to draw" books with step-by-step tutorials or full diagnostics of art theory. Learning to draw, paint, and sketch is in fact a fluid and dynamic process that pulls from both ends of the spectrum. If you examine any artist's sketchbook, you will likely find a mix of technical explorations, loose drawings, and even jotted notes. In this book, readers become participants actively involved in the creative process. With a carefully developed process and style, we use the format of a sketchbook to teach basic principles with friendly and accessible hands-on drawing activities and broken-down illustrations. Each page reflects the style of artist Katy Lipscomb's sketchbook that showcase a master's expert hand along with accompanying teaching moments from Tyler Fisher that invite the reader to participate. Simple thematic elements through this sketchbook create a continuity of style and subject matter as the fundamental mediums of graphite, pen, and colored pencil are explored, with activities that encourage collaboration and create opportunities to experiment with techniques.
