I'm an artist, and so I always enjoy seeing new how-to-draw books. As far as drawing books go, I felt that Fashion Drawing Studio had some good things about it, and some just OK things too. As far as clothing style goes, this book covers everything. They have gothic, steam punk, classic, hard rock, you name it. There is great advice and tips on every style. The author writes about how to mix and match clothing to achieve the different looks. She even gives a couple of pointers on how to draw a figure and some bits on the history of fashion. The drawings were just okay. I didn't feel like they gave a great representation of this artistic genre. There were some illustrations that had obviously been enhanced on the computer, but that step had not been included in the instructions. The good thing about the artwork is that the illustrators consistently showed the gradual steps they used to build their drawing. There were a lot of things about this book that were helpful for a young artist. Much of the text was worthwhile to read, and the process behind the illustrations was correct and useful. Some of the artwork was really nice, but most of it was just okay. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
