This book from Lee Hammond is on creating realistic drawing with pencils and coloured pencils.
The book waste no time and jumps quickly into the tutorials. There are 88 tutorials split between graphite and coloured pencil projects. The tutorials are easy to follow along with clear concise instructions and step-by-step pictures.
The book is more suitable for intermediate learners though. You'll get most out of it if you already know some basics to drawing, and at least is able to draw from observation because you'll be relying on copying the examples shown. If you don't mind challenging yourself, you can start as a beginner.
