About the Author
Top customer reviews
Today the newest edition arrived. It might be a masterpiece in it's genre, but I'll never know. The type face is so small I, literally, cannot read the side bars, and reading the body text is not much better. The amount of ink used for the impressions is minimal and adds to the difficulties. A book does no good if half of it cannot be read and the other half is difficult to read due to typeface or any other physical limits. A direct comparison of font size between the two books makes it very apparent it isn't just a grumpy whiny old man's grump of the day.
Publisher should be ashamed. If I can read the last edition with no problems I think I should be permitted to read the latest edition just as easily.
mind that this instructional book doesn't teach you how to draw from imagination (you won't be able to draw a fantastic fantasy or sci fi landscape or elves, princesses and so on) and doesn't teach you how to paint or use any kind of color. it's specifically for pencil/carbon REALISTIC DRAWING as in, draw what you see in front of you, nothing more.
i also have to mention that although real courses are held all around the world by the authors, you'd have to spend 2500 dollars to enroll, just to achieve the same skill level you will achieve at the end of the book. it's a way cheaper alternative and allows you to take your time. you don't have to do everything in 3 days like the real course, but i DO suggest you don't wait too much time between exercises and chapters or you'll forget what you learned.
the book will ask you to get some materials: pencil and carbon, artist eraser, pencil eraser, coulpe pieces of rectangular glass (the glass from a cheap frame is perfect), cardboard, a cutter, perma marker, paper ducktape (the one used for bandages works). i probably forgot to list some of the items, but they are all required in order to do the exercises. a drawing board would be ideal as well.
hope this helps
