Assuming nothing and starting from the basics making it suitable even for the enthusiastic beginner this book includes six step-by-step projects to follow; along with friendly but in-depth advice on colour palettes; skintone; composition; working from photographs and models; markmaking; lighting; atmosphere and much more.
