Drawing can be as easy as 1, 2, 3! Christopher Hart offers a wildly creative collection of cartoon characters that all begin just with a number. Detailed, step-by-step instructions make it simple to construct each character, but even better, the clever images that emerge from these common numerals are a delight. With the numbers ranging from 1-1001, children can learn art and practice counting, too!
As both an introduction to figure-drawing concepts and a refresher for more seasoned artists, The Figure It Out Workbook is an engaging resource for anyone eager to pick up a pencil and start drawing. Combining content from Hart’s three previous Figure It Out titles, this handy, travel-sized workbook offers artists step-by-step tutorials plus blank pages for practice. It begins with the basics of drawing the head and facial features, and then moves on to the body, keeping in mind proper proportions, movement, and true-to-life poses.
Coloring and manga fans will welcome Hart’s second exciting collection of adorable, irresistible girls! Featuring intricate backgrounds throughout, these pictures make for a fun and challenging coloring experience, and give budding artists a fun opportunity to play creatively with color and character.

When the proportions are right, the drawing looks right! Most artists whose work features the human head and figure don’t have the time or opportunity to draw directly from models, so it’s essential that they acquire the skills and tools to draw them accurately without using direct reference. Now, thanks to Chris Hart’s foolproof method, even beginners can quick-check the proportions of their head and figure drawings, identify errors, and swiftly fix mistakes.
