The first step is to get the basic shapes/perspectives correct, and then the details are filled in over the next two steps. This is a tried and true approach to drawing, but for some of the more complex characters even the very first "perspective and shapes" sketch is kind of difficult for kids to do correctly. Consequently, I think that an additional, even more basic stage/step might have been helpful.
My son reports that he's happy with the book because it includes Krool and Link, the personalities he most wanted to draw. At only 32 pages, however, this short guide clearly is not comprehensive, and there is no guarantee that a particular Nintendo personality a child may have in mind will be included here. Still, overall, this is an extremely useful book and certainly the only one of its kind. My son has already spent hours in deep concentration practicing his sketching, and I think that in itself is quite an endorsement of the work offered here by Mr. Teitlebaum and Mr. Zalme.
My son wanted to learn to draw Kirby and some of the newer ones but all in all a good book.
