Draw Real People!
Having trouble drawing a nose that looks like a nose? In this step-by-step guide, Lee Hammond will teach you how to draw realistic-looking portraits of your favorite people—more easily than you ever thought possible.
The secret is in the blending: With pencil and paper, Lee shows you how to create gradual, smooth shadings of light and dark to replicate the subtle contours of skin…and how to use these simple shading techniques to make any shape look three-dimensional.
After you've got the basics down, you'll see how to draw every part of the face. It's made easy by looking at each feature as simple, interlocking shapes, then adding the right highlights and shadows. In no time, you'll be drawing realistic noses, mouths, eyes, ears…even facial expressions.
Then you'll see how to put all those features together to create an expressive portrait that actually looks like your subject! Step-by-step demonstrations guide you all the way.

This book is ideal for kids interested in learning more about Drawing. It has very helpful information in it and both of my children have been using it. It is challenging enough yet easy enough for elementary age children. Read full review
this is a very good book. just make sure your grids are straight use a t square as soon as one spot on your drawing is crooked all the connections will be crooked. those who say grids are cheating cant draw even a grid let alone a drawing from her books.
