As a graphic designer, I always appreciate a chance to learn to draw new things. Especially if those things are cute. Now I’m not saying I draw well but I do a fairly decent job with some things. So when I was given a chance to review Kawaii Doodle Class, I took it.
Kawaii Doodle Class shows you step-by-step how to draw numerous cute things that range from foods (I’m particularly good at drawing the popsicles and sticky toffee puddings) to everyday objects (pencils, erasers, fountain pens) to adorable monsters. If you need some inspiration on how to decorate your cute drawings, the author has included “inspiration” pages that include ideas for accessories, colors, facial expressions, and face placements.
If you’re looking to learn to draw cute objects, this book is definitely for you. It is also a great book for beginning artists who are just learning to draw, as the majority of the sketches are simple shapes that are easy to draw and combine into a finished drawing. This book gets 5 stars because it is just a great little how-to-draw book.
I received a copy of this book free from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
