I can't say I've really looked at this book in any depth yet.
But I love his scratchy, wiry drawing style.
Many bloggers and artists recommend this book. Here's a book review at The Watercolour Log blog if you're interested in finding out more.
Drawing is a very personal thing,
But personally, at the moment, I am learning Glen Vilppu's methods of drawing.
I just like his teaching style and his simple step by step methods of learning how to create things from your imagination - that have life.
It's not simple doing them though.
But if you're interested in buying some of his materials, Glen's closing down his online store , on Dec 31st 2016.
...So you can get some big discounts on his handbooks and downloads there.
Or there's Glen Vilppu's youtube channel.
