Graphite for Scientific Illustration by Rogério Lupo is a new FREE guide intended for anyone interested in knowing or practically learning the fundamentals of graphite and who want to improve their knowledge and skills in the use of graphite for scientific illustration generally and botanical illustration in particular.
Basic understandings of observational drawing help the student, but are not indispensable to take the best out of the booklet.
Rogerio Lupo is a Brazilian Natural Science Illustrator who has won first prize in several competitions including the Margaret Flockton Award in 2010 and 2013. He graduated in biology from the Universidade de São Paulo. Much of his work is dedicated to the illustration of scientific botanical articles/papers. He has also researched different approaches to illustration and artistic techniques.
Bobbi Angell - also a leading Botanical Illustrator - kindly provided a technical and linguistic review of the English version translated from Rogerio's first version in Portuguese
The guide covers the following:
