Highly recommended for people looking to get into figure work. I picked it up mostly to supplement my special effects studies to understand sculpting the body and was blown away. The proportioning system is straight foreward and laid out in intricate detail. Even better, she shows you all the different genders and ethnicities all in the same section as options. Still better are her how-to's ...

J. D. Hillberry

Inspiring and practical
I come from an artistic family (mother a watercolorist, grandmother a sculptor, sister a painter) and I've been a professional photographer for 25 years. So I am inspired by images and the skills that produce them. Having dabbled in pencil drawing for years (with only mediocre results) I came across this book and got really fired up. Imagine, pencils and paper; and that's it. Nothing could be ...

How to Cheat in Photoshop CS5: The art of creating realistic photomontages
Not a computer book to leave on the shelf!
I borrowed a previous edition of this from my local library, and was enchanted by the well organised mix of practical tips and engaging humor. I was also impressed by how easy it was to apply what I had learnt to my own digital work, whether I wanted to create realism, or deliberately distorted versions of reality. When I recently upgraded to Photoshop CS5 I decided to treat myself to the ...

How to Build Realistic Model Railroad Scenery, Third Edition (Model Railroader Books)
Kalmbach Publishing Company
A whole NEW book!
I have Mr. Frary's other two editions of this book. I bought the first one years ago when I got interested in my trains again around 1982. So much had changed and I never was very good at scenery that I needed "something" to help me improve my lay-out. Mr. Frary's first edition helped me do a very credible job of building scenery on the lay-out at that time with his "water soluble method." ...
Drawing Realistic Pets from Photographs

I purchased this book for my daughter's 14th birthday. She loves to draw and is quite talented. I gave "Drawing Realistic Pets from Photographs" to her for her birthday and she loved it. She sat right down and sketched the cat. She said when she opened it "Awesome". This book shows the picture of the animal and then how to pencil/charcoal draw the picture by hand. I would highly recommend ...
Bullying Prevention and Intervention: Realistic Strategies for Schools
2 reviews, ...
The Guilford Press, 2009
wonderful and very practical addition
School bullying has become a major concern, probably not because there's any more of it now than before, but because we are more aware of it and the very real potential for long-term adverse consequences. This book stands out clearly in my opinion among the many related publications that are now available. In spite of what appears to be a common popular opinion, the authors do not believe that ...

Infoquake (The Jump 225 Trilogy) (v. 1)
David Louis Edelman
A Detailed Vision of Web 225.0
I picked this book up on a whim and I'm really glad I did. I'm often looking for new science fiction, and I'm often disappointed in the quality of what I find. Not this time. This is one of those rare occasions when I was blown away by a book and an author I'd never heard of. The author builds a detailed and compelling vision of a world that is a believable descendant of our own. The ...
How to See, How to Draw: Keys to Realistic Drawing
North Light Books
This book begins with learning how to observe- to see what's really there, not what you want to see. Observation is a skill that's learned and practiced, and one of the hallmarks of successful artists is that they know how to look at a subject with clear vision unfettered by preconceived notions or old habits. Using reference photos, diagrams, sketches and comparative examples, the author shows you first how to observe an object, and second how ...
