It's a cute book and meets what it promises. You will learn how to draw a bunch of things in a japanese-style, from a simple strawberry to the loch Ness monster. Don't let grumpy adults that see a hat instead of the boa constrictor eating an elephant discourage you. Lovely book. ...more

Este libro te da lo que promete su título: "Como dibujar casi cualquier cosa", te enseña paso a paso cómo dibujar animales, plantas y flores, alimentos, personas, prendas de ropa...

Pensaréis que si te enseña a dibujar todo eso, donde está el problema. Pues sencillamente en que te enseña a dibujar todo eso ¡como si tuvieras 5 años!

En fin, que no me ha servido, ni me ha aportado nada aprovechable, dinero tirado a la papelera y un libro inútil más ocupando espacio en las estanterías. 😒

About illustration rather than realistic(?) drawings. Would be very tedious and repetitive something that would make you a better artist if you actually draw everything which I did not. If you've had other art instruction or if you actually work through the whole book it hammers through the concept that you can create a faithful rendition of anything by interpreting / copying its lines, shapes and / or colors. Copying the step by step examples of complicated subjects such as the famous sites in ...more

One of the best, simple drawing books. I tested many of the drawings and always found success. This book is perfect for an art classroom as it provides excellent visuals and small steps. I know this will be a favorite in my classroom.
