    "I recently started getting into digital art with very little background in traditional art so I've had to look for outside resources to help me get a better foundation. This is definitely a good one as it's not just example drawings but contains tons of written information, techniques, and tips, too. I thought I was going to be stuck drawing cartoon styles for so long but not now!"

    "I visit this channel pretty often, as I'm trying to learn to do some sketches to add a different element to my designs. There are so many videos that very simple to follow along with as you learn. The types of sketching and drawing topics they cover is quite extensive, probably the largest video learning resource I have seen out there. It's truly invaluable when it comes to learning about sketching everything from 3D objects to human faces, bodies and forms."

    "One of the biggest problems I've faced as an artist is drawing realistic people. It's very hard to get right and the slightest feature that's off can turn it into a comical look. This book is really helpful on achieving realistic people."

    "This is a cool youtube playlist of teaching you how to draw faces. They draw popular celebrities and characters to make it more interesting."

    "This is a great way for beginners to learn how to hone their skill. I used it myself and enjoyed going through the steps to create something new. I learned a few new tricks that made drawing certain elements, like facial features or hair, a lot easier. Learning how to portray perspective was also very helpful."

    "As someone that enjoys drawing but isn't very good at it I enjoy watching these videos. I like the way it's broken down and taken step by step. I've finally been able to draw some decent pictures and I'll keep watching."

    "What a resource! Teaches you how to draw and has tons of useful tips. As someone who was always bad at drawing and really frustrated my lack of skill, this website has been a godsend. They break things down step by step so that anybody can understand them, their clear instructions and examples make it so easy to learn. And when you start noticing how better your drawings are becoming, it just makes you want to keep learning and keep practicing. A wonderful website for those just starting out or very experienced in drawing, for there's tips and tricks for all levels."

    "I like how this book "how to draw cool stuff.." is like drawing for even the untalented. If I can draw a square or any shape I can draw it. If not it lets me copy it and then I can practice tracing which is great to teach kids and the non-drawing adults alike."

    "If you've ever had a desire to to learn how to draw this is a great resource to check out. There are literally hundreds of items that this website breaks down into tutorials. Even breaking faces down from the entire face to each piece ie; the eyes, nose mouth etc. The only drawback is all of the drawing is more cartoonish than some may prefer, but otherwise a solid place to begin."
