The illustrations are beautiful and the text nice and clear and Alyona doesn't skimp at all, on sharing her original and innovative techniques.
In other words, IF you've got it in you to simply do what she's showing you to do, you will gain great skill fast.
If you "can't" ( that means won't, btw ), then bash around however you want, & you'll still be nowhere as good as you would have been by the end of this book, 1/2 year later...
Also get The 4th Definitive Edition of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain ( Betty Edwards )
Mastering Composition ( Ian Roberts )
and Creative Authenticity ( Ian Roberts )
and Prismacolor Mixed Media set will get you much of the way there...
DO see in YouTube if this is the right medium for you ( look up Robin Williams Color Pencil for a stupendous photo-realistic example ),
& do see if the wax pencils are better for you than the oil pencils, before buying a full set,
you will also need Odorless Mineral Spirits, "waterpen" brushes for the solvent, Stonehenge paper, etc...Read more ›
