Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Learn how to use the grid technique to draw accurate sketches of people from photographs and more, with the help of master artist Giovanni Civardi. From world-renowned artist Giovanni Civardi, this highly practical guide to drawing people of all ages and in a variety of poses uses the traditional grid technique to make the drawing process both simple and accessible. Starting from a photograph, Civardi shows how to create an accurate pencil sketch of the subject by overlaying a grid and transferring the image one square at a time. The drawing is then rendered in easy stages to create a finished portrait. Even the most complex of subjects can be broken down into easy steps using this method, and by following the numerous step-by-step exercises the reader will very soon be producing highly detailed drawings based on photographs of their own.
