(pencil sketching) Jack's cost about $7.00 and Andrew's cost approximately $30.00
I won't be giving either one of them up soon... unless the good Lord has other plans

I like How To Draw: The Complete Starter Course by Drew Williams better because the book is a true lesson course.
I personally find paid online lesson courses to be even better than books because the writer can only cram or teach so much in a limited amount of pages.
