If you love going out and sketching people quickly from life but sometimes feel a bit overwhelmed at the challenges that brings, then this is your book. If you can already draw people, the author gives you strategies for getting them down quickly while drawing on location. However the author also covers some of the basics in a chapter on proportions, gesture, likeness, etc. If you have no experience sketching people there are more comprehensive books available on figure drawing (a life drawing class would be extremely beneficial).
The author covers such subjects as how to apply different media in sketching on location as well as etiquette involved in drawing people in public. He also gives resources for sharing your work online. You can go solo of course but you can discover the rewarding world of "urban sketchers.”
This book is aimed at those of us who enjoy the deep pleasure of bringing our sketchbooks everywhere we go and sketching the life going on around us. If you enjoy people watching, this book will help you take it to the next level.

Good, not great, book on sketching people2017年6月20日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
There are a lot of suggestions in this book for sketching live people (rather than sketching from pictures of people) that I found useful, and although there were not as many examples as in the perspective book in this series, the text in this book made up for that shortcoming. I would have like to have seen more in-depth examples of the process from start to finish, as are available in other, more traditional art books on drawing (rather than sketching) but overall I'm pleased with this book. It was not as useful to me as the perspective book, but there is value in it and I'm glad that I bought it.
Very useful ideas in a nice small package2018年10月20日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This has been a really helpful little guide on sketching people on the fly. Love the various ideas and different methods suggested. I've been pretty successful since incorporating some of these ideas by incorporating people into some of my "urban" (really country sketches). I also appreciate the size of this book which fits nicely into my sketching bag.
