    A little disappointed with my purchase.

    This book is full of gorgeous illustrations, but I feel like it's a bit short on content. There are only a couple of techniques, and materials are barely addressed. I read the book in one night, it has some idea leads for illustrations which are nice. The book left me expecting more.
