Book Description

Draw 30 amazingly cute kawaii-style characters in just eight easy stages.

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.

Here, expert comic book and manga artist Yishan Li shows you how to achieve amazingly adorable drawings in just a few simple steps. Draw the cutest dog you’ve ever seen, or turn a car into a cute and cuddly character complete with eyes and a smiley mouth. Even a vacuum cleaner and a television set are brought to life in kawaii style. There are 30 different drawings to choose from, all full of personality and bubbling over with charm. Each one is developed in 8 easy stages from a rough sketch of the basic shapes through to the finished, coloured drawing, making this book suitable for adults and children of all ages and abilities. 

With its easy-to-follow landscape format you can watch the stages build across the page and then recreate them with ease.

The book contains material previously published in How to Draw Kawaii, 2020.
