Review: Lee Hammond's All New Big Book of Drawing

For this review, I chose Lee Hammond's All New Big Book of Drawing

I requested ARC copy of the ebook through Netgalley in exchanged for a honest review.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:

Master the Essentials of Realistic Drawings

With Lee Hammond's Big Book of Drawing, your art will spring to life! From laughing children and frolicking tigers to fruit so vivid it makes your mouth water, you'll discover how to realistically draw your favorite subjects and how to draw them well! Learn to:

Use easy-to-master graphing and shaping techniques to better portray your subject
Replicate the effects of light through blending and shading
Accurately render the personalities of people and animals
Realistically draw flowers and natural elements by applying hard or soft edges
Achieve a range of effects by using different brands of colored and graphite pencils
Whether you're a beginner or a professional, with Lee Hammond's instruction you'll find the arsenal of tools you need to create stunning, real-life drawings that will captivate your audience.

When I saw this on Netgalley, I know I had to try to get it to review.  I realized that I need the actual book to be able to sit down to learn this.  If I had a copy on my ipad, it would have been easier for me to read it better tan in the Adobe Digital Editions program.

I love to draw and paint.  I am always looking for a new book to learn how to make myself a better artist.  My favorite chapter is Chapter 4 on Animal drawing.  I have been looking for other animals besides wolf and dolphins to draw and paint.  I would love to be able to draw our late husky so I could put him up on our living room wall.  

I will need to buy this book in order to practice the techniques mentioned in the book.  I also want to see about the author's other books.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
