Draw 50 People teaches aspiring artists how to draw with ease by following simple, step-by-step instructions. Acclaimed author Lee J. Ames shows you how to draw a wondrous diversity of people from around the world and throughout history. Included here are people from ancient times, like an Egyptian mathematician, a medieval troubadour, and a Roman athlete. But there are also pirates, queens, soldiers from the Civil War and World War II, and many others.

Lee J. Ames’s drawing method has proven successful for children and adults alike over the past thirty years. The twenty-seven books in the Draw 50 series have sold more than 3 million copies and have shown everyone from amateurs to experts how to draw everything from animals to airplanes.

Even the youngest artists can make these ancient and modern men and women look great. It’s easy to draw people when you do it the Draw 50 way.

About the Author:

Lee Judah Ames (January 8, 1921 – June 3, 2011 ) was an American artist noted for his Draw 50... learn-to-draw books. He was born in Manhattan, New York. His first job at age eighteen was at Walt Disney Studios. He has since led a career as an advertising artist, fine artist, cartoonist, designer, animation in-betweener, illustrator, and as an artist-in residence at Doubleday. His series of 26 Draw 50... books take a friendly and minimalist approach to teaching drawing while the books often contain no instructional text. He enlisted in the military and served as a second lieutenant during World War II. He and his wife Jocelyn resided in Mission Viejo, California.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Writers, critics, and artists have for aeons tried to describe and explain drawing. They have written: "He's a great draughtsman"; He draws with calligraphic verve";"...a linear delight with a personal, exciting line." Etcetera, etcetera. 
What do they mean? 
Picasso, Ingres, and Mary Cassatt were great draughtspersons, but were all very different. John Singer Sargent's delightful calligraphic brush strokes were exciting. Picasso's line was honest. The art of drawing has been analyzed dissected, and even "Freudianized" through the ages by expert and dilettante critics. So let's get personal and get to the basics: What is a drawing?
