Product Description


Animals are a perennially popular subject for artwork, whether it is a drawing of a favorite pet or a study of a wild animal. Learn how to capture those creatures on paper with this latest entry in Search Press' popular How To Draw series. The animals in here are all of the type you would find in a zoo, and you can take your pick from elephants, big cats, primates, meerkats, lemurs, rhinos and more. The author has a good understanding of what is popular from the animal kingdom right now (no dolphins but everything else) and you are sure to find some of your favorites in here. As with all the titles in this series the author devotes one page at the front of the book to tell you how to use the book and give ideas as to how to find more subjects and convey his enthusiasm for his art. Each page has an animal on it rendered down first to a series of easily drawn rough shapes, and then each subsequent stage adds a few details in brown pencil so you can see how the drawing builds up. This usually takes three or four stages and then the final pair of drawings show the creature in graphite pencil, then in colored pencil. The first steps are easy to tackle and make learning to draw seem fun and reassuringly simple, but there is quite a jump from the final basic sketch to one of the finished drawings. This series is aimed at beginners, and I felt that a couple more drawings would make a lot of difference. However, nobody said that art was easy and anybody keen enough is sure to study those final two pictures and be able to work out what is going on with a bit of thought, sorting those who are serious about learning to draw from those who are not! I had some fun with this book and so will any other animal lover who wants to make some sketches of their favorite beasties. --MyShelf.com

Another one from the popular How to Draw range, this time Jonathan Newey shows us in a series of simple steps how to create a selection of different wild animals in a variety of lively poses. He uses a simple method of shapes, mainly circles and ovals joined together by lines to show us how easy it is to draw these, in a step by step format from the initial step to the finished portrait. The beauty of this book is that like all the How to Draw series it's so simple to follow each step. The first step is drawn in a plain pencil colour and subsequent steps in a brown, with the last step changing back to plain pencil. Its incredibly easy for even a very beginner to create great drawings following Jonathans' simple instructions. If you'd love to draw but think you can't this book is the one you want, it demystifies all those problems and shows you just how simple drawing is by following a few key instructions. --JeannieZelos.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for any age to learn to draw 21 Feb 2013
By USGEMGIRL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been drawing and painting for many years; but I do enjoy collecting drawing books. Occasionally I encourage people to draw who are fixated on believing that they cannot draw. I can prove them wrong.
This book approaches drawing in a very basic manner, step by step. I won't say you will create a perfect drawing the very first time; but you will be amazed how close you can come. If you can draw circles, ovals, squares, rectangles and triangles, you will be able to use this book. One thing, this book is entirely pictorial. You will need another type of drawing book to find out more about supplies and techniques. If you are a practiced artist, you already have that information and if you are a beginner, just grab a pencil, paper and eraser. make your drawing and color it in. I think you will have a good time and for the price, how can you lose.
