How to Draw: Cute Kawaii Summary

How to Draw: Cute Kawaii: In Simple Steps by Yishan Li

Kawaii is a Japanese word meaning 'super-cute', and it's a trend that's sweeping the globe.

Anything can be drawn in the kawaii style, from animals, people, vegetables and flowers to food, vehicles and household items. Expert comic book and manga artist Yishan Li shows you how to achieve amazingly cute characters in a few simple steps. Do you want to draw a singing cactus, a cheeky camera, a crying onion, or a playful panda? The choice is yours!

How to Draw: Cute Kawaii uses material from the best-selling How to Draw series, plus 32 brand new projects!

There are over 100 projects to choose from, each full of character and charm. Each one is developed in eight easy stages from a rough sketch of the basic shapes through to the finished, coloured drawing, making this book appealing to adults and children of all ages and abilities.

How to Draw: Cute Kawaii Reviews

Author and artist Li returns with another in the How to Draw in Simple Steps series. More than 100 kawaii (cute) drawings are provided in eight steps each, allowing the reader to sketch along with the book and practice until they've mastered the item, person, or creature of their choice.

The drawings fall into a few categories: animals, everyday objects, vehicles, food, and chibis (cute, stylized, miniature characters).
Though instructions are not written out in words, the familiar technique readers will learn here is to identify the basic shapes that make up the item one wants to draw, start with a blocky sketch using those shapes, and refine the sketch gradually. As usual, the only instruction for the final step of coloring in is the example, so readers may wish to look to other sources to learn about shading, color choice, and other related aspects. Fun and cute, this will appeal to those wishing to learn how to draw in a kawaii style.
