Take a sneak peek inside our new book Sketching from the Imagination: an insight into Creative Drawing.

3dtotal Publishing's new release, Sketching from the Imagination: an Insight into Creative Drawing is a delicious array of inspiring doodles, concept sketches, illustrations and fully formed drawings from artists around the globe.

Representing a hugely diverse spectrum of art from fantasy and surrealism to cartoons and manga, this book explores how 50 artists use line to create images from ideas. Bringing together the work of industry legends and arts professionals, as well as some up-and-coming talents, Sketching from the Imagination is a cross-section of concept drawing now.

In each chapter, the artist describes their work and approach to sketching in their own words, offering advice and reflections on their practice. Full of tips, tricks and stories, the artists reveal how they developed their skills, exercise their talent and explore new ideas.

Highlights in this creative anthology include:




In addition, pin-up hero, Serge Birault, explains why he's returned to drawing to refine his cartoon design skills, and Framestore's Richard Anderson describes how his drawing obsession once nearly lost him his job.

Also included are numerous other great artists who share their drawings and doodles such as: Bastien Lecouffe Deharme, Brett Bean, Jean-Baptise Monge, Marshal Vandruff, Joe Weatherly, Eric Velhagen, Kurt Papstein and loads more!

Rather than another 'how to draw' book, Sketching from the Imagination is a compendium of concepts to intrigue and inspire. Whether you sketch for fun, to design digital creations or create fully rendered graphite masterpieces, this book is a compendium of creativity to help inspire your own artistic journey.
