This might be a great book, who knows? I downloaded the sample but like a lot of the samples, it only shows the introduction and no sample of what it is really like. I would have to see this book in a bookshop before forking out for it.

Dinosaur Sculpting: A Complete Guide, 2d Edition 30 Sept. 2013
By M. Fredericks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In 1995, when I was still a cute pup (and not a junkyard dog, like I am now), Allen Debus and Bob Morales, both sculptors, decided to share their years of experience and knowledge in creating awesome prehistoric animal sculptures with the world in a book titled, "Dinosaur Sculpting." The small press run was an immediate, huge hit and quickly sold out. (You can still find "collector copies" on Amazon.com from $225 to $650 each.) Luckily I still have my original copy that I reviewed in Prehistoric Times magazine all those years ago and it was fun to compare that one with the new second edition that I know Bob and Allen and his wife Diane are very proud of; and rightly so. I'm sure they have developed both as writers and sculptors in almost twenty years since their first book and they definitely have much more to say in this beautiful new edition. Chapters include; an overview of paleoimagery, a step by step formula for creating a prehistoric animal sculpture from the wire armature to creating fine details to baking the clay. Chapters also cover sculpting all the different types of prehistoric animals and how to research each. You will also read about dioramas, painting your finished piece and even troubleshooting help. There are plenty of b&w photos and illustrations, some accomplished by yours truly. Is it fair that I review a book written by friends of mine and one that I even wrote the foreword for? Maybe not, but in twenty years of book reviews I pride myself on always telling my true opinion and I tell you now that if sculpting prehistoric animals is your thing, you MUST own "Dinosaur Sculpting, A Complete Guide 2nd edition" for everything you want to know on the subject in an easy to understand and emulate format. It's A to Z to recreating a realistic, scientifically accurate prehistoric animal 3D work of art.

Review 4 Jan. 2014
By Shaun Dunn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is good, but I really expected more, with content to include the more modern techniques, resin and acrylics. As it is it is still a good starter on sculpting.
Great read!! And helpful guidelines 24 Feb. 2015

I was really hesitant to buy the book with my precious Amazon gift card because what if it wasn't worth the price. I am glad to say that it was worth the price. My gift money was well spent. I enjoyed this book cover to cover!

The authors included so many tips and tricks that I haven't even heard of in the clay sculpting world. Tricks that I have tried and work fantastically. A little bit of humor is added and a good amount of dino facts too.

1st edition was much better. Although this edition has some interesting spots, it's not worth the cover price.
