I like this book a lot. I like the step by step for poses, the face front, 3/4, and profile tutorials, as well as the pages of hairstyles and features. I found many parts of this book helpful, the pictures were all big enough to see the detail, and the examples of fashion illustration throughout the book are fashion forward and beautiful. The book even has a chapter on color, and a chapter on technical drawings.
