With high marks for style, Camilla d'Errico has written a 236 page comprehensive guide to her painting process. This book is packed with step by step tutorials to teach anyone her methods. Fans of manga and her "Helmet Girls" will be pleased to know that cover to cover, Camilla explains her drawing and painting tools, how to better evoke emotions, blending and shading, but most important for visual learners, complete, step-by-step explanations for painting her iconic, doe-eyed girls and all the animals on their heads.
Ask yourself. Do you honestly know of any other book that explains how to paint two rainbow tigers on a girl's head? Or a girl with an octopus and crow crown? And all with the classic dramatic, melted ice cream rainbow tones Camilla d'Errico is known for. Feathers and skin tones, furry bunnies and melting effects, Camilla hasn't left anything out for her fans or new readers alike.
It's always a pleasure to come across a book that an artist put so much passion and voice into. Nicely done!
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
