For those of you who are interested in this new book, I wanted to post some more photos of it. I know how hard it can be to buy things online when you can't touch, hold, and feel them, so I always try to include lots of photos!
|This is a nice, thick book! 3/8" to be exact... And the spiral binding allows it to lay flat on your table while you work.|
|One design from the "cheek art" section. This is also great around arms!|
|There is an illustrated "design directory" on page 23, which makes it easy for you to browse all 40 designs and immediately know what page they are on.|
|Many of the designs have these graphics to help you know where to position your brush, and in what direction to move it to get the desired effect.|
|I have one spread that touches on lighting, and how to position your colors for the most realistic 3-D effects. Honestly, I could write an entire book on lighting and shadows...and I just might in the future. As an Industrial Design major in college, I took entire courses focused on realistically drawing objects.|
|One of my full-face designs...the popular flaming soccer ball taken to a whole new level!|
