    Great drawing kit!

    My daughter wanted this kit for Christmas and we were not disappointed. It comes with great materials (pencils, erasers, etc) and is a quality book from cover to cover. Pictures are detailed and instructions are clear and break down the drawing process from simple to more complex. My daughter has spent many hours drawing scales, faces, wings, and complete dragons. Using the materials provided and the instructions in the book and some practice, you can create a beautiful finished product. Good for the hard to buy for 12-15 year old age range if they are into science fiction or fantasy type of genre in books and movies. Definitely recommend this kit.
