Overview

How To Draw Lifelike Portraits From Photographs, Revised

Lee Hammond is back and better than ever, featuring all new step-by-step demonstrations that will have you drawing your best portraits yet. Her secret to success? The "Hammond Blended Pencil Technique," a proven method of shading and blending that captures the soft tones and dimensional shapes of skin, hair and clothing.

Focusing first on individual facial features, you'll follow her easy three-step process for realistically rendering even the most challenging eyes, noses and mouths. From there, you'll use Lee's basic grid techniques to master proportion and put the features together, then gradually blend and shade your way to amazingly lifelike portraits. It's that simple!

This completely revised and updated edition of her bestselling book features people of all ages, personalities and ethnicities so you can find the specialized guidance you're looking for. There's even a bonus instructional DVD. Simply use your own reference photos and follow along one step at a time, or copy Lee's demonstrations.
