Drawing Using Grids: Portraits of Babies & Children
From world-renowned artist Giovanni Civardi, this highly practical guide to drawing babies and children uses the traditional grid technique to make the drawing process both simple and accessible. Starting from a photograph, Civardi shows you 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.
