If you're a graphite artist or an artist who wants to learn more about how to construct a drawing, a book like this is a jewel. This is the book I have been waiting for... a book where a life-long artist performs a magical brain-dump into a format where you can reference it your whole life. So, if you were on the fence about this book think about it this way: this book can help you perfect your craft for a lifetime and amounts to a night out to a restaurant and a few drinks. Now ask yourself, which is going to stay with you after you wake up the next day? Rich Adams


  • Over 280 pages of pencil drawing tips, tutorials, demonstrations and much more...
  • More than 625 illustrations
  • Tools, techniques, methods
  • Step-by-step instructions
  • For the Novice and Advanced student
  • From pure line drawing through to near-reality

When you purchase this book you will receive a sheet of the Brilliant White Smooth Mellotex Paper FREE!


"I've been working on Mellotex (formerly Ivorex) for over 30 years and in that time I've never found an equal." MIKE SIBLEY


If you detest the texture of your paper interfering with what you are trying to depict, you'll love Mellotex. Mellotex is a double-sided plate-finish paper with virtually no detectable surface texture. It's tough! You can crisply indent Mellotex, and erase almost endlessly without destroying the surface. It's very smooth! Although very dark tones will need to be applied with some pressure, you can gently lay down a light tone that will blend or layer to produce seamless skin tones and faultless skies.
