Drafting Film Review

This book was so helpful with clear instructions. So many "ah-ha" tips. Following the different projects built up my confidence and ability.

Great Tutorial Book!

I so enjoyed doing my first tutorial from this book. Very easy to follow with the step by step instructions. Another plus side to this book are all the reference pictures that go along with the steps provided. This was my first time using drafting film as my substrate. I loved how easily I could apply color and blend on the drafting film. I look forward to moving onto the next tutorial in "A Complete Guide to Using Colored Pencils on Drafting Film" by Gretchen Evans Parker.

It works!

I have really enjoyed using this new technique. I had a few problems with understanding the shading, but I think this first attempt shows I can get there in the end.

for novices

I've only looked through the book so far. I found the detailed steps a bit overdone, for novices perhaps.
