Very good book for beginners. Includes basic steps for drawing the face (especially the nose, which has been difficult for me!). Christopher Hart is very thorough in this book. I especially liked his section on perspective.
Shows great positioning and styllistic ways of comic book women making it easy to mimic how they are drawn. Excellent book for non-beginers.
