Read This Comic and Start Drawing Today

For the first time ever, drawing instructor and graphic novelist Mark Crilley brings his easy-to-follow artistic instruction to aspiring artists in the form of a comic book, providing you with a one-of-a-kind how-to experience. In The Drawing Lesson, you’ll meet David—a young boy who wants nothing more than to learn how to draw. Luckily for David, he’s just met Becky—his helpful drawing mentor. Page by page, Becky teaches David (and you!) about the essential fundamentals that artists need in order to master drawing, all in a unique visual format. In panel after panel, Crilley provides lessons on shading, negative space, creating compositions, and more, with accompanying exercises that you can try for yourself. Are you ready to start your drawing lesson today?

INTRODUCTION Learning a trade very often involves seeking a mentor, and when it comes to learning how to draw, having a good mentor can make all the difference. There's no substitute for having a professional sitting right there next to you as you're trying to learn. Professional artists can see where your drawing is going astray. They can point out the discrepancies between the thing you're looking at and the picture you've drawn. They can get you to open your eyes and see things in a completely new way. If all goes well, you may find such a mentor exactly when you need one, right there in the town where you live. But it doesn't always work out that way, does it? What if you're not so lucky? What if you go your whole life without finding even one person who can show you the ropes? It's a sad fact that many people never get the mentor they desperately need. My goal with this book is to give you the next best thing: some sense of what it's like to meet a drawing expert and to have a series of lessons at his or her side. There's no shortage of instructional art books in the world I've made a few of them myself. But I wanted to see if crucial lessons about drawing could be woven into an actual narrative. So, I set out to create a story that would give you vicariously the experience of having a mentor? one that can make you feel as if you are the one having your mistakes corrected, as if you are being told what to do and how to do it. So, please turn the page, meet young David, and follow him on his drawing journey. I hope his story gives you some sense of what it's like to have a drawing mentor. Mentors are not always gentle, and they certainly aren't there just to be your personal cheerleader. But a mentor can truly change the way you see the world, and in so doing change your life altogether.
