The real focus here is on coloring. Though other mediums are touched on, the artist deals primarily with alcohol-based markers (such as Copics.) She shows how to create interesting effects and textures (such as wood, metal and gemstones.)
The illustrations are cute and the narration has a friendly, supportive "voice." However, this may be a disappointment to more advanced artists, or someone looking for a sturdier education in drawing fundamentals. I'd buy it in addition to other, more in-depth how-do-draw books such as Mark Crilley's.
I bought this book for two reasons 1) to support Baylee and 2) to learn a bit more about using my alcohol markers. Considering a large portion of the book is dedicated to coloring I thought I would learn more but the coloring tutorials skip from incredibly basic to full scenes using at the very least 29 different markers (43 for the most, yes I counted). It would have been nice to see at least one sort of in between drawing with a more limited amount of markers.
Overall I’m glad to have been able to support Baylee but I can’t help but feel a little letdown. Fifteen bucks was a lot for me and I had hoped to learn a bit more.
What I like best, is that her personality really shines through in this book! You're never too old, too young or too seasoned to learn something new. :)

Good quality when arrived.
But beware that when the instructions for drawing are step by step and you do not own Copics you kinda have to interpret the colour use as your own.:)
