Draw 50 Sea Creatures {Review}


Part of the Draw 50 series developed by Lee J. Ames (of Walt Disney Studios and School of Visual Arts in NYC), Draw 50 Sea Creatures provides step by step directions for creating a variety of sea life.  The book is broken into several sections including fish, shells, sharks, etc.  Each creature is drawn using from 4-8 illustrations with the final step including the most detail and shading.  The drawings are easy to follow although some seem like they could have used additional steps near the end.  However, the examples are easy to follow and each creature is interesting and fun to learn.

When I saw this title for review, I knew my kids would love it.  We're all the creative types and it's been a lot of fun to explore this book together.  Since we've just returned from our own beach adventure, the kids have been excited to dive into this one.  The drawings were challenging for my 5 year old, but both the 9 and 11 year olds really enjoyed learning from this book.  Two tips that we discovered were to look over all the steps before beginning and to draw lightly.  Looking over each project before starting really helped our final result.

All in all I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to draw from ages 10 years and up.  It's been a great way to learn and spend time together.  Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

*Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book for review.  All opinions are my own.
