From a world champion carver known for his lifelike busts, this updated book includes new patterns and photographs, in addition to valuable information on techniques for creating realistic hair, facial features, realistic skin and muscle, hats and head dresses.

Phares provides tips for fixing common anatomical errors and information about proper tool use.

It also includes a gallery of Jeff Phares' amazing work that offers untold inspiration too!
