When it was originally published in 1970, How to Draw What You See zoomed to the top of Watson-Guptill’s best-seller list—and it has remained there ever since. “I believe that you must be able to draw things as you see them—realistically,” wrote Rudy de Reyna in his introduction. Today, generations of artists have learned to draw what they see, to truly capture the world around them, using de Reyna’s methods. How to Draw What You See shows artists how to recognize the basic shape of an object—cube, cylinder, cone, or sphere—and use that shape to draw the object, no matter how much detail it contains.

Art is an expression of progressive humanity. What most people forget is that they are, in fact, a work of art. You are a work of art - a walking, talking being of beauty, capable of making beauty. Drawing is a form of artistic expression that absolutely everyone can do. Once you get started, it is a lot of fun, and it can be a very lucrative hobby. Not only that, you can touch lives with a simple cartoon drawing of a bunny nurse with a thermometer on a get-well-soon card. Or you can create a heartwarming gift for your loved ones by sketching their face. True, some people are born with an innate artistic ability. Some can even paint murals at an early age. Before we get side tracked further, the point is, regardless of talent, just about anyone can do it because it is a skill that can be honed through practice. In this book, you will learn the fundamental building blocks to learn how to draw. We start with the -Stickman- as the fundamental and most basic way of drawing. After incorporating the lessons from that simple figure, we then dive into shapes, spaces, perspective and rudimentary anatomy guidelines for drawing the human being.
