    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful! Unlike most art books these days this is not a step-by-step instructional. Instead it points you in the direction and asks you to piece out what to do on your own. This is a great way to develop style and explore your artistic boundaries. Overall, it is a fantastic resources for most artists.
