Publisher Comments:

Pirate lore and legend has been a fixation for centuries, and pirates have appeared in everything from literature and theme park rides to film and television movies. Now kids can learn how to draw these swashbuckling characters with the easy step-by-step instructions provided in Learn to Draw Pirates, Vikings and Ancient Civilizations. The book opens with brief information for getting started, the materials needed, and some sample drawing exercises for warming up. Each page of this colorful learn-to-draw book offers simple instructions for drawing a variety of seafaring pirates, sea monsters, a treasure chest, a parrot, and more! From a pirate captain and a sea serpent to majestic ships with billowing sails, aspiring artists will find much adventure as they follow the instructions for each drawing lesson. Each drawing lesson begins with a basic shape, such as a circle or an oval. Then each step builds upon the last and progresses to a finished final color artwork. In addition, several projects are accompanied by interesting tidbits, so kids also learn fun facts about real-life characters and pirate legends as they draw them. Learn to Draw Pirates, Vikings and Ancient Civilizations is the perfect way for children to discover more about these scavengers of the high seas by learning historical facts about real people, as well as express their creativity in drawing and coloring their favorite characters.

About the Author

Bob Berry, of Bob Berry Illustration and Design, has been an artist all his life, or at least since he was able to hold a pencil. While the mainstay of Bob Berry Illustration and Design is for children’s publishing and textbooks, Bob has also provided art and illustration services for interactive CDs, the Web, children’s games and toy packaging, and character and costume design for the sports entertainment industry. Bob is primarily self-taught, copying the techniques of his favorite comic book artists, like Russ Manning and Alex Toth, when he was growing up. His formal art education came later when he majored in painting and graphic design at The State University of New York at Purchase. After graduating he worked as a paste-up artist on the weekends and as a draftsman during the week. In his search for more creative work he landed a job art directing magazines for a small publisher. After that he opened up his own graphics firm with a fellow artist and has been in business for himself ever since.
