Synopsis

Draw 50 Boats, Ships, Trucks, and Trains teaches aspiring artists how to draw with ease by following simple, step-by-step instructions. Celebrated author Lee J. Ames shows readers how to draw dozens of modes of transportation from throughout history, such as a Viking ship and the Santa Maria, as well as a nuclear submarine, a Jeep, and a tractor-trailer. Ames's illustration style and renowned drawing method has made him a leader in the step-by-step drawing manual, and the 31 books in his Draw 50 series have sold more than three million copies. Ames's instruction allows seasoned artists to refine their technique and guides amateurs to develop their own artistic abilities. Even the youngest artists can make any type of vehicle look great. It's easy to build all kinds of vehicles when it's done the Draw 50 way.

Excerpt

Mimicry is preqrequisite for developing creativity. We learn the use of our tools by mimicry. Then we can use those tools for creativity. To this end I would offer the budding artist the opportunity to memorize or mimic (rotelike, if you wish) the making of "pictures." "Pictures" he has been anxious to draw.
The use of this book should be available to anyone who wants to try another way of flapping his wings. Perhaps he will then get off the ground when his friend says, "David can draw a speedboat better than anybody else!"
