in Colored Pencil

by Jasmina Susak

This book will take you through the process of drawing photorealistic portraits using nothing else but colored pencils. You will learn to draw three portraits of celebrities: PewDiePie, Emma Watson and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson in a realistic style.

Creating human skin with colored pencils can be one of the most difficult subjects to draw. Skin and its variety of colors can present particular challenges. From burnishing, blending, layering and mixing to shading and building up color, this book brings you comprehensive how-to tutorials and guides so you can start drawing portraits. This book provides highly detailed step-by-step tutorials, and if you follow the instructions and draw patiently, you will have good results.
