Top-selling artist Debra Kauffman Yaun gives clear, step-by-step instructions to guide artists in capturing the unique characteristics of the human face in pencil. The book opens with in-depth information on tools and materials, drawing and shading techniques, and the anatomy of the face. Showcasing a range of beautiful portrait studies, Yaun demonstrates the essence of depicting age, ethnicity, personality, and more. Artists will be inspired to grab their pencils and start drawing immediately-the paper's right there, bound into the book.
