Top customer reviews
It covered subjects such as Basic kit set up, sketching movment, different types of sketching and then showed me lots of pictures he has done. But overall it all seemed to be a little crammed and quite a few subjects are not as in depth as some books. This may be due to it only being 63 pages, and for 7-8 pounds, you could get a more detailed book with a lot more pages and pictures. I think the author or publishers expect you to buy the book because the artist has been on TV.
What the first reviewer says is true, there is a lot in only a small space and that makes details limited but I don't think it was ever meant to be anything more than an overview to what can be achieved with what. I'm not sure I would buy it personally, esp having read it already, but I think it is worth having.
