Brush Pen Illustration

About the Book
Curious about the world of brush pens but aren't sure where to start? Brush Pen Illustration shows how to draw pretty much anything in 2 – 4 steps.

Brush pens have taken the illustrating world by storm! This unique medium comes in hundreds of colors and produces a beautiful, soft, watercolor effect which has had lettering artists buzzing. Now, though, illustrators in all walks of art are incorporating brush pens' into their repertoire as a simple way to include color and motion into their art.

Brush pens' style is reminiscent of Chinese brush painting and drawing. They offer a gentle, paint-like quality that replicate watercolor paints without having use paint and brushes. Brush Pen Illustration is a comprehensive guide which shows you how to draw pretty much everything in 2-4 easy steps; apples, zebras, penguins, flowers, this book shows you how to draw everything under the sun with fun and colorful brush pens.

My Take on the Book
This is a great book for any artist that wants to learn more about brush pen illustration. I have not used brush pens in the past, but had some around the house. Through the reading of this book I truly learned a ton about using these brush pens in the right way to create some very fun images. I was impressed by the way that the author was able to walk the reader through the steps that they needed to follow to create these fun images. It took a bit to get the technique worked out, but after trying and learning more I was able to fix my technique to be able to get the image to look more like what I was seeing in the book. This is a great book for any artist that wants to learn more about brush pen illustration, I know I learned a lot and you will too.
