Recommends it for: anyone who wants to learn or improve on drawing portraits

I use to be really good at drawing and then stopped for along time. This book is very good. Amazing instructions especially on how to shade in order to make photos look real. The only negative may be the teaching tool he uses. He uses graphs and as much as it helps i think most people would like to just draw without making a graph and then erasing it. For now this is one of the best books for sketching i have come across.
