Soaring above the world of Disney*Pixar Cars, the new action-packed adventure Planes tells the tale of a young crop-duster named Dusty who dreams of competing in the toughest around-the-world air race in history. Learn to Draw Disney's Planes features Dusty and the friends he meets striving toward his goal, including his coach, a naval plane named Skipper; military planes Echo and Bravo; fellow racer El Chupacabra; and fierce defending champion Ripslinger. Featuring a variety of scenic backgrounds from colorful skies to exotic locations around the world, this beautifully illustrated book is sure to inspire young artists to recreate their favorite personalities from the film. Learn to Draw Disney's Planes opens by introducing artists to a small selection of essential drawing tools and materials, as well as a range of options for adding color. Artists are then guided through a warm-up with some quick and easy sketching exercises before moving on to the step-by-step drawing projects. Each drawing lesson begins with a basic shape, such as a circle or an oval, with each new step building upon the last, and eventually progressing to a finished piece of color artwork. New steps are shown in blue, so young artists know exactly what to draw next. Along the way, professional Disney artists and illustrators share helpful tips and tricks for making each character take flight just like they do on the big screen.
