9781581809633: Secrets To Drawing Realistic Children

Drawing children has never been easier!

Maybe you can't stop your favorite child from growing up, but you can create timeless memories with pencil, paper and some simple drawing skills. Now you can capture your most cherished moments in a way no ordinary photograph can.

Here to show you how are Carrie Stuart Parks and Rick Parks, professional composite artists and drawing instructors. In their friendly and foolproof teaching style, the Parks cover everything you need to know to create incredibly true-to-life pencil portraits of the children you love.

You'll learn how to:

  • Take strong reference photos
  • Achieve correct facial proportions
  • Draw a face from different angles and bring it to life with shading
  • Master tricky facial features such as eyes, nose, ears, hair, lips and smiles
  • Make hair look realistic and shiny
  • Draw clothing, incorporate props, and work with light and shadows
  • Convey the true sense of character of your child

Complete with step-by-step demonstrations and countless expert tips for striking results, this book will help you create drawings that capture the one-of-a-kind essence of a child, preserving forever that lovable, clownish, whimsical or impish nature that makes children so very special.
