3.0 out of 5 stars For the Advanced Artist's
By Daniel Houghton on February 8, 2021
I had very mixed feelings on this book.Let me get the major con out of the way. Due to the time an year it seems the female face is hardly covered but with the bare minimum of information If you're area is more female drawing you may be disappointed. Now drawing males it's guns blazing an kick butt It also has 2 amazing sections on babies an teens. This book is more for the advanced student it covers in depth with anatomy a mathematical formulas that without a bigger background in art you will become very frustrated with it I'm glad I have it in my library though.
