Capture a likeness with pencil and paper. Yes, you can draw! "Draw Faces in Minutes" sets out to show you how. Furthermore, by the end of it you should be able to create a lifelike portrait in only minutes! The book takes you through a series of carefully crafted lessons, starting with some basic drawing techniques and then focusing on the different areas of the face. Once you have mastered the features there are a number of advanced lessons teaching you how to create expressions and capture character. Finally, focusing on different drawing materials, the book takes you through a number of portrait projects, so you can hone and improve your new-found skills. "Draw Faces in Minutes" doesn't take that promise lightly: by the end of the book, you too will be able to draw a face in a quarter of an hour.
