I need this book to show me how to draw portraits. I can’t draw them to save my life.

I’m not on Facebook or Instagram.

Great thing
By Sonja

but that does not really make sense. Actually I wanted to deal with the fact that people only like because they know one.

illustration et modélisation 3D
By Liechti David

Tous les jours je pratique l'art de l'illustration et de la modélisation 3D, mais je rencontre des difficultés à créer des personnages ou visages; j'espère pouvoir obtenir ce livre afin de mieux comprendre comment exprimer la structure, les traits ainsi que différentes particularités d'un visage. Je pense que si ce livre est tel qu'on le présente, je pourrai améliorer ma technique et que j'arriverai à concrétiser mes inspirations.
D'avance je vous remercie de m'offrir la possibilité d'obtenir ce 'guide'.
Merci et salutations.
Dav'

'Quick guide to Mastering Technique and Style'
By Suzana Laub

I am learning illustration and character design and this book seams to have good tips and examples on how to improve my drawing skills.

It is simply one of the best quick guides that I have seen. Straight to the point with complete examples from mark making, bone structure, indepth step-by-step drawings on every facial feature, to details such as skin tone and hair.

So I not only want it but I need POCKET ART: PORTRAIT DRAWING :D

Hope to receive it :D Fingers crossed!!!
Thank you for opportunity!

Invaluable resource
By Jon

I like the idea of a quick guide - this could be invaluable for my teenage daughter who is starting GCSE art in the autumn. Having studied life drawing my self, I know the complexities and frustrations of trying to explain the processes and techniques to her. Maybe if 'Dad' is not helping, and she can relate to some of the simple techniques in the book, she can take the lead from Miss Led and develop her skills further.
