Lifelike Heads - Walter Foster Drawing Made Easy Series
The Drawing Made Easy series introduces budding artists to the fundamentals of pencil drawing. With in-depth information, including several approaches to the discipline, these books will help beginners become inspired and feel confident in their own talents. This addition to the Drawing Made Easy series helps beginning artists learn how to draw lifelike portraits!

Then he guides the reader through four impressive projects, showing how to develop a lifelike head drawing in seven simple stages: the lay-in, plumblines, volume, outline, tonal pattern, value, and finishing.
