I recommend 'Drawing from Line to Life' to anyone interested in realist drawing techniques. It contains a wealth of information that you simply won't find anywhere else. I think it would best suit someone who has been drawing for a little while, but that said, if a beginner can get their teeth into this book, they'll make great progress.
