Publisher Comments:

Few artistic subjects are as challenging as the human face and few are as satisfying to approach successfully! In Faces, acclaimed artist Walter T. Foster teaches you the basics of drawing facial features and beyond! Inside, you'll find the correct head and facial proportions for both adults and children; then you'll discover how to render a variety of faces step by step, with tips on how to adapt your drawings for varied poses and facial expressions. Easy-to-follow demonstrations and helpful techniques for drawing eyes, noses, lips, and ears make this book a necessary addition to every artist's library of drawing references!

About the Author

Walter T. Foster was born in Woodland Park, Colorado, in 1891. In his younger years, he worked as a sign painter and a hog medicine salesman. He also performed in a singing and vaudeville act. Walter invented the first postage-stamp vending machine and drew political caricatures for several large newspapers. He's well known as an accomplished artist, art instructor, and art collector. In the 1920s, while running his own advertising agency and instructing young artists, Walter began writing self-help art instruction books. The books were first produced in his home in Laguna Beach, California, where he wrote, illustrated, and printed them himself. In the 1960s, as the product line grew, he moved the operation to a commercial facility, which allowed him to expand the company and achieve worldwide distribution. Walter passed away in 1981, but he is fondly remembered for his warmth, dedication, and unique instruction books.
