From construction lines to construction trucks, the You Can Draw! series of drawing books gives you a great introduction to the techniques used when drawing and sketching machines. In the first title in the series, You Can Draw Planes, you'll learn how to draw many different types of plane throughout the ages, from the F-16 Fighting Falcon to the engine-less glider right up to the aerial acrobat the Pitts Special! Each spread features information about the vehicle and easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions on how to draw simple two dimensional machines.
