How to draw in a nutshell by popular pencil artist Jasmina Susak. This book is about drawing for beginners and it is helpful to those interested in developing basic knowledge and skills. It is concise, clear, no wasted words, very easy to understand, and well-written in a friendly way filled with encouragement and complemented with a lot of illustrations. This book features verbal and visual explanations which makes the learning much easier and successful. The author contends that drawing and shading are skills that anyone can develop through patient practice and a lot of time spent on drawing even with no special talent for it. Why should you choose this book over the hundred others of the same topic? Because the author will teach you to draw realistic, lifelike drawings, to give a life to your drawing, instead of making flat, lifeless drawings. Because the author is a self-taught artist and can tell you about her own experience and what she has gone through, instead of repeating the curriculum that she would have learned in school, if she had attended any art school. Because the author won't tell you “Add some shading” that you can read in plenty of how-to-draw books by other authors, but she will explain to you in detail how to do it and how she does it with nothing left to be asked. Because, through this book, you won't learn to draw a cube or cylinder that no one needs, but the things that you will want to draw for yourself or for the people around you: animals, human faces, everyday objects, 3D drawings and more. Because the author will explain to you what she has realized through the years spent on drawing, so that you don't have to think about how to do something, but immediately start doing it, saving you time on study and searching for the answers on the Internet. Because the author will encourage you to keep on drawing and inspire you, so that you will never want to stop doing it. In this book you will find a lot of tips and tricks to kick-start your artwork and help you to achieve stunning results. Enjoy learning!

Ever since the time she can hold a pencil, she has been drawing and has been improving this skill in realistic drawing continuously. Growing up, art has always been her passion and while still studying in grade school, she always dreamed of pursuing a career in the arts. While in school, she accepted arts commissions and eventually ended up with landing an illustrator position for a storyboard company as her first job. The company she worked for has given illustrating services for U.S and U.K. based companies, such as Wendy’s, Ford Motors, and Yoplait to name a few. During Therese Barleta’s childhood years, her mother always gave her a pencil and a stack of papers to draw on, which she would doodle various images on. As the doodles developed into recognizable drawings of animals and people, her family discovered that she had a knack for drawing and they encouraged her to keep practicing this skill. Comic books, such as Archie, Marvel, and, eventually, Manga, nurtured her love for drawing and then later developed her skill for drawing realistically when Interactive Arts Services employed her as a storyboard penciller. The job required constant drawing of different people of different ages, sexes, and races depicting various everyday situations and this constant practice sharpened her skill in realistic drawing. HowExpert publishes quick 'how to' guides on all topics from A to Z by everyday experts.

Draw the Flow Way “Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart.” –Elizabeth Gilbert “I cannot rest, I must draw, however poor the result, and when I have a bad time come over me it is a stronger desire than ever.” –Beatrix Potter “Drawing, painting, creating…it’s like a muscle. You have to work on it every day.” –Sarah Walsh “Draw the art you want to see, start the business you want to run, play the music you want to hear, write the books you want to read, build the products you want to use—do the work you want to see done.” –Austin Kleon “Drawing is the discipline by which I constantly rediscover the world. I have learned that what I have not drawn, I have never really seen, and that when I start drawing an ordinary thing, I realize how extraordinary it is, sheer miracle.” –Frederick Frank “Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.” –Salvador Dalí “Creativity is a way of living life, no matter what our vocation or how we earn our living.” –Madeline L’Engle “I believe the most important single thing, beyond discipline and creativity, in any artistic work, is daring to dare.” –Maya Angelou “I sometimes think that there is nothing so delightful as drawing.” –Vincent van Gogh In this innovative approach to drawing instruction, the illustrators from Flow magazine open up their tool kits, sharing secrets and techniques to teach the creatively curious how to draw. The lessons, 50 in all, curated from the best of Flow's two special drawing issues, show how to render the kinds of things we see every day: a bouquet of flowers, a beloved teacup, colorful mittens, the kitchen table, a bike, jam jars, a cat, an apple tree.

From the acclaimed author of the perennial favorite Boundaries, Where to Draw the Line is a practical guide to establishing and maintaining healthy boundaries in many different situations. With every encounter, we either demonstrate that we’ll protect what we value or that we’ll give ourselves away. Healthy boundaries preserve our integrity. Unlike defenses, which isolate us from our true selves and from those we love, boundaries filter out harm. This book provides the tools and insights needed to create boundaries so that we can allow time and energy for the things that matter—and helps break down limiting defenses that stunt personal growth. Focusing on every facet of daily life—from friendships and sexual relationships to dress and appearance to money, food, and psychotherapy—Katherine presents case studies highlighting the ways in which individuals violate their own boundaries or let other people breach them. Using real-life examples, from self-sacrificing mothers to obsessive neat freaks, she offers specific advice on making choices that balance one’s own needs with the needs of others. Boundaries are the unseen structures that support healthy, productive lives. Where to Draw the Line shows readers how to strengthen them and hold them in place every day.
