Sometimes when I go right away to the resources intended for grown-ups, I can get overwhelmed with information or frustrated with the complexity of the subject.
Just the other day, while browsing through the art section for kids, I came across the book Drawing and Learning About Faces, by Amy Bailey Muehlenhardt. It took me back to when I was a kid, wanting to learn how to draw cartoon faces, but so desperate to be perfect that I just ended up tracing the pictures at the end.
(That's another reason to love kids' books: Eight faces...that's it! I can definitely handle eight faces, and then feel the achievement of making it through the whole book. Mind games...they work every time!)
There is happy:
Now, I think I'll head back to the kids' section to see what other drawing books they have!
