About The Book

With the new expanded collector’s edition of Learn to Draw Disney•Pixar Toy Story, artists-in-training can draw characters from all four Toy Story movies! This 128-page book includes drawing projects for your favorite Toy Story characters.
After an introduction to art tools and materials, a series of drawing exercises invites artists to warm up and learn a few basic drawing techniques. Then the real fun begins! You’ll find step-by-step drawing projects for Woody, Buzz, Bo Peep, Forky, and more!
The easy-to-follow instructions in this book will guide you through the drawing process; each step builds upon the last until the Toy Story character is finally complete. You just need to grab a pencil, a piece of paper, and your copy of Learn to Draw Disney•Pixar Toy Story; then flip to the character you want to draw. You’ll draw the basic shapes shown in step one, and move on to step two, step three, and keep going! The new lines in each step are shown in blue, so you’ll know exactly what to draw. After adding all the details in each step, darken the lines you want to keep and erase the rest. Finally, add color to your drawing with felt-tip markers, colored pencils, watercolors, or acrylic paints.
Plus, learn some fun facts about the Toy Story characters as you learn to draw them. Brief character descriptions and art instruction from professional Disney•Pixar animators round out this exciting artistic adventure.

My Thoughts

Drawing has never been my strength, I love doing crafty things until you make me draw something! I’ve tried different books and techniques, but I suppose the main problem is time, I don’t have the time to “learn” and let’s be honest, is neither my strongest!
But I’ll have to admit that with my son being a big fan of Toy Story, I couldn’t resist to try to learn how to draw the famous characters: Buzz, Woody, Boo… so I tried the Learn to Draw Disney/Pixar Toy Story by Walter Foster Jr. Creative Team book!
For starters there are a few different position for every character, so you can choose which one you want to start; and a lot of useful tricks and examples that will make the process much more fun and easy!
The illustrations are big and colorful, easy to follow and done with a fine pen to show you exactly how to “perfect” your characters. There are too some do’s and don’t to make the experience more fun and interesting.
Here are some examples that you can find inside the book…


And I am sure you want to take a look at my designs… don’t laugh, they are not perfect, but I had so much fun trying to draw these characters! And my son was able to difference each of them, so I suppose I didn’t make them so badly!
