We have the entire set of vintage drawing books. The first two were great and we were able to follow along really well. This level is a bit more complicated with shading and more complex shapes. The step by step drawings to follow are good, but it would be helpful for some tips on shading etc. Overall we are pleased with this great instructional drawing resource!
This book is a wonderful book for those ready to begin drawing people and scenes. These books make a great way for children to see the progression that an image takes and builds an attention to detail in such an engaging way.
I like this and it moves into some more complicated subjects such as people. The scenes are nice and should keep your child’s interest. My only complaint is that the book fails to explain hatching and cross-hatching, smudging and shading. So all the sudden you go from the sketch to a shaded drawing with no explanation. It is a common failing in many art books so I can’t fault them too much.
The images in book three are a great advancement from book two. My older son and I were excited to learn more about drawing people and shading in this book. There are a lot of pictures of girls, but plenty of other images that boys will enjoy. Book four has a better balance of boys and girls.
We got these to have fun with but I’ve really learned a lot right with my kids. It is not copy work, it helps with details that I had missed before or didn’t think about.
You might be able to start with this one if you have some skills already but we decided to go back to the start after trying this one because it was a little too challenging for us beginners.
