Drawing on the right side of the brain is one of the subwaysurfer's "secrets", Folks. That's right. I learned some of my skill from BOOKS , and THIS is by far the one I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
This book is Easily one of the best, if not THE best "idiot proof" HOW TO DRAW BOOKS on the subject. Ive told my students about this book for YEARS. This book is a gem that truly teaches you everything you need to know about the subject in an easy to understand way.
This book should be required reading for anyone who is serious about improving their drawing skills, regardless of their level, but especially for beginners. It helped me in my pro caricature work for sure.
Unlike most art instruction books nowadays, the author is not interested in just "showing off their skills" and stroking their own ego, but giving to the reader a well thought out, systematic road map which will give them NOTICEABLE improvement in a matter of weeks. There is a great BEFORE and AFTER section that showcases work of students MS. Edwards, each possessing a different level of skill. The results are truly inspirational and astonishing. If you're a "bad" artist, this book will make you a GOOD artist. If you're a Good artist, it will make you an exceptional one.
