Overview

Having trouble drawing a nose that looks like a nose? In this step-by-step guide, Lee Hammond will teach you how to draw realistic-looking portraits of your favorite people—more easily than you ever thought possible.

Really!

The secret is in the blending: With pencil and paper, Lee shows you how to create gradual, smooth shadings of light and dark to replicate the subtle contours of skin…and how to use these simple shading techniques to make any shape look three-dimensional.

After you've got the basics down, you'll see how to draw every part of the face. It's made easy by looking at each feature as simple, interlocking shapes, then adding the right highlights and shadows. In no time, you'll be drawing realistic noses, mouths, eyes, ears…even facial expressions.

Then you'll see how to put all those features together to create an expressive portrait that actually looks like your subject! Step-by-step demonstrations guide you all the way.

    Amazing Art Book!

    I am a high school art student and I got this book when I was 12 and my drawing skills when it comes to people are far more advanced than some of my peers.I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys or wants to learn how to draw faces.

    Basic

    It's probably my fault but I didn't realize how basic the book was when I ordered it. The techniques described in the book seem very standard and general. The book is also thinner than I expected, and even the cover seems much different (and less realistic) full size than the picture provided.
