How to Draw! by Mahalo.com
For kids, nothing beats Saturday morning cartoons, except maybe learning how to draw them. This app is designed to walk you and your kids through the entire process of learning to draw cartoon characters.
By the end of the course, you’ll know how to draw:
✓ The whole SpongeBob universe—characters, interiors and background
✓ Halloween-themed characters like Jack Skellington, Grim and Count Duckula
✓ Your family and friends as My Little Ponies
And we’ll be adding more lessons each month!
★ Characters from Mario Brothers, including Luigi, Princess Peach and Yoshi
★ Characters from Lion King, including Scar, Timon and Pumba
Even though the app starts out with the basics of the proper technique to hold a pencil and how to draw lines and curves, it quickly progresses to more advanced skills including:
✓ Turning basic shapes into characters
✓ Adding expressions and scenery
✓ Drawing characters in different positions
✓ Building whole scenes with a background and multiple characters
✓ Putting on the finishing touches like inking, coloring and shading
Using this app, you’ll be able to track your progress through Mahalo’s high-quality drawing video series, taught by drawing expert Ken O’Brien. Ken has worked as a level designer and storyboard artist for several video games, including the SpongeBob Wii game “Creature from the Krusty Krab” and majored in art and animation at Cal Arts.
