Clear and helpful
I enjoyed this book a great deal as someone that has always loved art and been wanting to learn how to draw but unable to develop the courage to start. The exercises are excellent and the text clear and encouraging throughout.

great book, good service from seller
The book was recommended by my graphics design teacher. My drawing skills were holding back my digital design skills and the book had made a world of difference. I am only 1/2 way through and the quality of my drawing and improved dramatically. It is astounding. Go ahead and give it a shot--amaze yourself, even if you are starting out with stick figures.

I use this book in my college art class and it is great for first time drawers! I was never able to draw a portrait until I used this book. Now I love drawing them and will continue to use the lessons all throughout my educational and professional career.
