Credited with being the inspiration for Walt Disney to pick up a pencil and pursue a career in animation, E G Lutz's method of drawing complex illustrations in gradual, simplified stages paved the way for many of the artists and illustrators who followed him. What to Draw and How to Draw It is a wonderful master class in drawing a delightful range of subjects, from animals and people to toys, buildings and landscapes. Pictures are broken down into simple shapes and lines, which are then built up, with the aid of clear step - by - step instructions, into beautiful drawings. Simple enough for children to follow, yet using the same principles that can be seen in sophisticated artworks and animations today, What to Draw and How to Draw It can help budding artists of all ages to develop their skills and learn a real sense of proportion and form, which they can go on to use in their own illustrations. Nostalgic yet timeless, this historically and culturally important book has inspired so many adults and children to draw and can help you too to discover the delights of creating your own artwork.
