Illustration School: Let’s Draw Happy People by Sachiko Umoto

I’ve always wanted to be good in drawing. But then, I don’t know, I guess I’m good in something else. Art and I don’t really click. But I haven’t stopped trying, I mean, I stopped for a while, and then I gained interest again. And that’s why I recently bought a how-to-draw book.

A-cover

I’ve been buying a lot of how-to-draw books since highschool because I really want to learn how to draw, but none really helped me cause I can’t really absorb anything, cause everything’s so complicated. And that’s why I bought Sachiko Umoto’s Illustration School: Let’s Draw Happy People, because it doesn’t really seem to be complicated.

B - To the reader

C - How toFirst few pages of the book, it’s really, really cute! And it has simple drawings, which is great

H - Basic basicIt shows pretty much how to draw simple things, in this book, it shows how to draw people, not the very detailed, realistic kind. Illustrating is not just about capturing the details, and being all realistic, it’s also about actually enjoying it, no matter how good, or not-so-good you are.

E- basicEvery page has a step-by-step process on how to draw different kinds of people.

aaand, here’s my take on drawing:

my drawing

eheh. I’m still a long way to go from being good at drawing but as Sachiko Umoto said, “Work at your own pace, when you want, where you want.”

I will continue on drawing Sachiko Umoto style, and hopefully in the future, I get to have my own style!

  1. Hmmm we have the same desire. I’ve always wanted to be good at drawings too! I learned before and stopped as well. Then I started learning few months ago because had to do some sketching of my designs. It is hard I know but drawing can be learn with patience and perseverance. Since you are having a hard time finding more books, why not try youtube.com There’s lots of tutorials and they are super cool! Cheers! 🙂

    • El problema de esa region(LEON)es el mismo que en la Comunidad Valenciana,en Alicante y Castellon siempre existieron recelos,sobre todo en los primeros años de la creación de la autonomia,hoy esos recelos practicamente ya no existen.Lo mismo sucede con esa region,que al coicidir el nombre con una de las ciudades que la conforman se dan esas circuntancias,si la región llevara otro nombre seguro que la situación seria otra.De todas formas creo que la historia de la region Leonesa es lo suficientemenete importante para que tenga autonomia propia.Un saludo de un AlicantinoCOMUNIDAD VALENCIANA
