To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I feel this book is meant for intermediate level. Though there are many examples but they don’t follow a structure. What I mean is... if you’re a beginner you need some guidance on ratios and proportions between say facial features. You try to internalize some of the things you learn and bam! the author will draw something you’ll question all your previous understanding. Use this book as a practice book (not reference) and try to apply whatever you’ve learnt so far. In my case I use loomi’s methods to draw faces. So I use that and apply it on the examples given in the book. Hope I made sense???
I recently purchased this book as I am very interested in drawing people. I am very familiar with the "Draw 50..." series by Lee J. Ames as I have grown up with those books. This is similar, but not quite as easy to follow. The pictures are a little more complicated but still good. This is geared more towards high school students and adults and may be a little hard for younger children to follow unless they are artistically advanced.
