A fun how-to sketchbook for drawing portraits and selfies!
Sketch Your Selfie is an approachable guide to drawing all kinds of faces—starting with your own! Conceived by illustrator Amy Blackwell, this interactive book is not about mastering an academic or “realistic” approach to drawing. Instead, you’ll learn some basic skills for drawing facial features and focus on capturing the quirky things that make us each unique: glasses, hairstyles, tattoos, and attitude. The sketchbook is also filled with prompts that offer different creative ways to represent yourself and your friends (as mermaids, spirit animals, robots, and pop-art portraits). For beginners, doodlers, and those who want to explore comic techniques for capturing a diverse range of people, Sketch Your Selfie offers a contemporary take on an age-old subject.
