Format: Paperback
I would have paid twice the price for this book. Its only failings in my view are that (a) it does not explain the techniques of blending the graphite in enough detail, (b) it assumes that you are not a complete novice to drawing heads, and (c) all the portraits are from front on. Being self-taught I can relate to the methods that the author uses, but I would have appreciated having more portraits from different angles. Having said that I think it is an excellent book, and one that fills a hole in my knowledge. As long as you feel comfortable with a pencil in your hand, it is well worth having.

this book is excellent, apart from one little fault, when describing the polishing technique, she has writen the instructions like you know what she is talking about, instead of explaining it for idiots. think this book is american and the wording only a american would understand. apart from this the book is excellent and the results you can achive are out of this world and an easy book to follow with projects to complete, the best book i'd had in ages. would recommend this book to others. if you get this book please past on what she means with the polishing you will understand when you read it, or it me that thick

I draw portraits as a hobby, and sometimes they come out pretty decent. However I always struggle with getting proportion and realism. Lance is pretty good at pointing out how to observe anatomical structure, and defines several steps to take to get a decent drawing from laying in a plumb line to measuring negative space and shading. There are around 7 different kinds of shadows that I learned about from this book.

I would recommend it as a useful guide to better portrait drawing. It's not expensive but is very helpful. Lance's drawings shown in this book demonstrates how good an artist he really is.

Forget the psychobabble about "inner artist". This is
a practical book giving clear information on how to
draw heads in pencil.

I was amazed at how this helped my twelve year old daughter, after just a short read. She was quite pleased and has kept a 'before' the book picture to compare with a drawing she has made after her first look at the instructions. Amazing!

I am just returning to drawing after a forced lay off . I had this book for some time I was very pleased that I pick it up, from my collection it really got me back into the grove .

Thank you, you put me back on track.

This has to be my favourite book for teaching how to draw realistic heads. Great for beginner's or those wanting to improve. lots of pictures to demonstrate. written in a way thats easy to follow. I didnt expect this book to be this good, especially as it didnt cost much!
