With this handy primer you can learn how to draw what is possibly the most difficult thing people! There are thirty different men and women in here to tackle, as well as facial features and body parts front, side and three quarter view. They are all generic, attractive studies but are easier to undertake for a beginner than those with more character. Progress from a simple shape adding details and end up with something that looks recognizably human it is a good way to learn and is easier than you might think.

This book mostly avoids any of those jumps a lot of beginner art books have where a basic line drawing becomes a fully coloured and shaded piece of art with no steps in between. These have all been added before the colour appears in the final stage so some good results are possible even if you are a total beginner. The brief introduction explains how the book works and suggests how to colour your drawings and the palette shown with each one will help choose the shades you use. I was impressed, as this book really does take much of the mystery out of drawing people and I would recommend it to anybody who wants to learn.
