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.
A pretty worthless book if you are looking for an introduction to drawing. It shows you a bunch of pictures to illustrate how shading changes an image. Yay (insert sarcasm)!!! The only use it is for me is that I now have lots of examples of nature drawings. Thankfully, I can draw them because I began with the book "You Can Draw in 30 Days" which was just brilliant in describing the how, when and why you draw what you draw. THAT book completely transformed my ability to draw and understand the intricacies of art.
I was very excited to receive this book today; however I am returning immediately. The dedication in the back of book is “to our Lord, who is Author of nature...” which I could probably live with; however, many of the illustrations are signed by the artist as “Laus Deo or Praise to God”....I’m was looking for a basic drawing instruction book, not an instruction book with religious propaganda!
NOT A REVIEW OF THE BOOK ITSELF>>>BUT, Would give it a zero if the option was available. Ordered a book on landscape sketching and had something entirely different delivered. BUYER BEWARE!!! Now I get to figure out how to get a refund....
