Very valuable art book to have, I’m very happy I bought it, now I am aware of so many textures to learn and have the guidelines shown here to point me in the right direction.
I wouldn’t recommend it for beginners however, as some textures may be overwhelming and make them think “why can’t I do this as easily as shown, I must be a bad artist” when the fact is that a lot of the textures shown are very difficult to draw, with a lot of experience needed to understand how to get from step to step.
