Really love Ben's style and wish I could draw like him. Overall some good tips in here and great for inspiring one to experiment.

Don't expect to draw like him at the end, but going through and playing with the ideas in here will probably help.

I draw slightly better than average, but not "good" and I credit books like this and other drawing books for getting me to draw and try new things. The key thing is to keep drawing and experimenting.

Good reference book.
