"Modelling Scale Figures
offers tips and techniques to both beginners as well as experienced modelers who may believe their skills have reached a plateau... Unlike other figure modeling books on the market, Modelling Scale Figures
uses full-color images throughout. Bannerman has an easygoing, conversational style that...is accessible to everyone." -Tim Kidwell, Model Retailer
"If you are like me, you can only hope to do as well as these artists, for artists they truly are. This book is really a superb reference for those of us who want to sharpen our skills and provides a number of ways to achieve that goal. A book you'll be referring to many times over."-Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com
"This is the best modeling book for beginning figure painters that I have read in years. Sharp photography and thorough, yet concise, descriptions will allow the new painter to achieve good results the first time out."--Dave Youngquist, Michigan Toy Soldier, W. Britains, and Old Northwest Trading Company
