The Importance of Storytelling

This was a great mini video that I found online that dealt with the importance of storytelling. Sometimes I think its funny to break away from the traditional and avant garde methods of storytelling. Well enjoy.

Facial Expressions Drawing Book

When I first started drawing I was horrible with faces…but as time went on and I kept practicing drawing faces I was able to get better. I used this book on a regular basis and it helped me learn to draw different types of faces way better. I hope this book helps you as much as it helped me. Enjoy.
