Klutz puts out a number of how-to draw art books and this one focuses on Star Wars: The Clone Wars characters. The book is spiral bound so pages lie flat when working on the exercises.
The book comes with a small plastic case with snap closure containing a pencil, a marker, three color pencils, with a different color at each end for six colors, and an eraser. There's Dos and Don'ts with examples of what is meant by the rule. Then there's exercises for the user such as tracing existing drawings and there is a sheet of tracing paper prior to the art page so you don't need to buy extra tracing paper. There's explanations of overlines and other terms with examples and room to try your new knowledge. Also covered are stick figures, shapes, details, and the step by step process used to go from plain paper to finished character drawing.
This is a great gift or tool for those who want to improve their drawing of people/characters from the Star Wars universe. Also it might be of interest to those who genuinely wish to improve their skills with drawing figures in actions poses.
All in all, a difficult subject handled in a simple direct manner to help budding artists.
