Why Learn Circles?
Circles turn into spheres on paper. It’s magic. But it’s no ordinary magic. Like any good magician, an artist needs to know the secrets of how a circle turns into a sphere.
Lots of Spheres equal Weedle

I have an entire collection of cartoon themed How to Draw drawing books. I have my favorites. These are by and large the books that show how to create a strong underdrawing.
Once you get the basic shapes down, the final drawing becomes all about the details. If you look at a mecha head, it’s hare to think it started life as a circle.
Start with the Course “Fun with a Circle.” If the assignments seem too easy for your overflowing talent, prove your smarts by creating a gallery of really extraordinary drawings using a simple circle somewhere in the underdrawing.
