My opinion: 5 stars out of 5.
Drawing freehand and from the memory is a skill that need to sharpen… all starts with white piece of paper, pencil and some 101 knowledge about perspective. Nailing this, plus some human mannequins, and you will be able to draw any character at the angles you wish…
Love the book and the mini lessons. So many references for my future characters. If someone wishes to start drawing “like a pro”, this book is definitely will help with the drawing part.
Now I am gone… to draw some stick figures.
