Product Description

Synopsis

Inside, five talented artists reveal their professional secrets for drawing all the features that are unique to our furry and feathered friends - from wet noses and expressive eyes to thick fur and delicate whiskers. The book opens with essential information about drawing tools and materials, followed by instruction on how to approach a drawing - such as building up forms with basic shapes, transferring a reference, and using a projected photo image.Then the authors demonstrate their unique approaches to drawing through an array of inspiring projects, guiding readers from initial sketches through the detailed shading process to the finishing touches. As readers progress from project to project, they will find a range of helpful topics, such as portraying accurate proportions, creating dynamic compositions, and using coloured pencils. Packed with convincing illustrations and expert instruction, "The Art of Drawing Animals" is a comprehensive and indispensable resource for all artists smitten with the animal kingdom.

30 of 30 people found the following review helpful By Ms. Rob Daltrey on 7 Sep 2009
Format: Paperback
I did not expect this book to be as good and helpful as it is. The 'step by step' is well graduated so that with time put into the drawing it progresses well through both text and illustration of 'what to do' without being overly technical. It covers a wide range of animals - both domestic and wild [though there are more examples and help drawing various domestic animals].
It is one of the most helpful books I have come across on how to achieve a drawing that looks like the subject - which is why I gave it 5*
