By the time you read this review, the Kickstarter campaign for How to Think When You Draw Vol 5 has already ended.
How to Think When You Draw series of books are packed with quick tips and drawing techniques from The Etherington Brothers. These books are always launched with Kickstarter campaigns and they are always sold out. Each time a new volume is out, there are reprints for previous volumes. The only way to get the books is through the Kickstarter campaigns so if you want to get these books, I recommend you follow The Etherington Brothers on their blog, Twitter and Instagram pages.
While you wait for the next volume, head over to their Instagram pages to check out the tips and techniques they have already shared online.
Below are selected pages from volume 5.
There's also this foldout card with an index on all the subjects ever featured across the 5 volumes.

Hi, what do you think about this book? I'm not sure that this is much of a review - more of a preview.
I have some of these books but have given up buying them. They are very nice to look at but they are quite random books with lots of advice about all sorts of niche topics. They are super-cool but very random. I guess I would have loved a book about characters, a book about backgrounds, a book about vehicles etc.
I sort of feel as though I need to keep buying their books to achieve great insight but that each individual book only gives me a limited amount of material that I am actually interested in.
Sorry, I know that sounds random but I sometimes feel that these books are over-hyped. They are pretty and the Etherington style is wonderful but that the content is sort of scatter-gun. That is not to insult the authors. I wish them every success but I feel I can't justify buying any more of their books.

They are probably good for people who want to try their hand at drawing a larger variety of subject matter. They should work nicely as an idea book
Good point. To be fair, I

Good point. To be fair, I think the artwork is beautiful and I think the output from the Etheringtons is amazing. Wonderful style and charm. Everyone should have at least one!
