Product Description:

This portrait drawing book implements the "grid" technique to create very realistic, lifelike, and impressive portraits that everyone will wow over. The early chapters encourage the beginning artist with amazing before-and-after pictures, information on the necessary materials, a review of blending, shading, graphing, and basic shapes, then culminates in a graphing exercise. As students delve deeper into the book, exercises become graph drawings of individual parts of people, and are later assembled into full-figure drawings. Later, more complicated scenarios are introduced, such as emotion, movement, positions, complicated features,and other details. After working through this book, the young artist should be able to draw any subject from a photo, with beautiful, lifelike results. Everyone will want them to draw their portrait! - Jess

Publisher Description:

Having trouble drawing a nose that looks like a nose? In this step-by-step guide, Lee Hammond will teach you how to draw realistic-looking portraits of your favorite people--more easily than you ever thought possible.

Really!

The secret is in the blending: With pencil and paper, Lee shows you how to create gradual, smooth shadings of light and dark to replicate the subtle contours of skin...and how to use these simple shading techniques to make any shape look three-dimensional.

After you've got the basics down, you'll see how to draw every part of the face. It's made easy by looking at each feature as simple, interlocking shapes, then adding the right highlights and shadows. In no time, you'll be drawing realistic noses, mouths, eyes, ears...even facial expressions.

Then you'll see how to put all those features together to create an expressive portrait that actually looks like your subject! Step-by-step demonstrations guide you all the way.
