Learn how to use the grid technique to draw accurate sketches of people from photographs and more, with the help of master artist Giovanni Civardi.

From the world-renowned and best-selling artist, Giovanni Civardi, comes this highly practical guide to using grids to draw people of all ages and in a variety of poses.

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.
