Taking the guesswork out of portraiture! This is THE head drawing book in my collection
Reviewed in India on 19 April 2015
This book made me understand exactly what I had to do to draw heads AND achieve a likeness.
I'll make it simple for you to decide if this book is right for you :-
If you -
1) Have tried to draw heads before and struggled with getting a likeness
2) Struggled to make features look like they're a part of the face instead of just 'stuck-on' the face.
3) Struggled to shade a head convincingly but never quite got the shadows correct
4) Are not a complete beginner at drawing and but want to improve your head drawings
If at least 3 or these apply to you, you should buy this book.
I had drawn portraits before I bought this book and they were not bad at all but they took me DAYS to finish and finalize. Now I can make a head of the same quality in less than half an hour because I have a streamlined process, instead of just 'winging' it. Having a process is everything because you are not guessing what to improve next, you have a plan, a checklist and you are focusing on exactly what matters.
The things you learn in this book will help you draw figures, animals, anything at all you can imagine because they are SOLID principles. Take it easy on yourself. Buy the book and enjoy drawing heads!
