not complete - but a great book

its a great book with great ideas, however, you must also order the Christopher Hart chibi workbook otherwise it won't help many beginning artists.

    Pretty lame

    Fine as a style study or experienced artists, pitiful as an instruction manuel for beginners.
    Two or three pages are devoted to explaining his style, and the rest of the book is four-step drawings for you to copy wih no ritten help or explanation. Hart seems more bent on teaching how to draw his style and preference, rather than teaching universal style techniques to help budding artists discover their own style.
    It's cute, but virtually useless in many ways.
