You won't believe the incredible drawings you can create using common pencils and the special techniques illustrated in this book. This is a highly challenging manual on achieving effects close to photographic with little more than a sharp pencil. Hillberry, an artist and teacher, offers splendid demonstrations on creating the look of metal, weathered wood, skin hair, and even cracked glass. One needs to have already grasped shape, proportion, and perspective before approaching this level of realism. Highly recommended for collections that need more than the basics! Step by step, you'll learn how to capture the look of metal, glass, weathered wood, skin, hair and other textures.
