3.0 out of 5 stars drawing animals
Very technical drawings. More suited to a vet than a budding artist.
I chose the wrong book-nothing to do with the production.

This review is from: Complete Guide to Drawing Animals (Paperback)
This book comes in very useful. Actually it's one of the only books that covers most aspects of how to draw animals, making things a lot less confusing than they need to be by limiting it to just a few species that can later be manipulated to represent others. Unlike a lot of other artist anatomy books, it cuts a lot of unnecessary clutter; presenting only clean and highly relevant content. It mostly covers proportion, anatomy, and how these things can be applied to movement- all these things, which are paramount to an artist if they want to understand how to achieve something convincing and realistic. Once you've got to grip with things, having practised the various gauging proportions and other methods, you'll be well on the way to be able to create cohesive and impressive animal drawings and to differently interpret reference imagery, using your own knowledge as a reference point, rather than just being a human photocopier (As far too many artists seem to be these days).

The book has a lot of content though; you can't expect to be an expert in a few days. Ultimately it's down to you, but this book is an excellent start if you have the commitment to see it though, well worth the price as you'll find yourself coming back to it again and again. I would recommend it to anyone at all interested. 5/5.

This review is from: Complete Guide to Drawing Animals (Paperback)
This is an incredible guide to drawing animals. Based on the theory that if you understand the structure, you can draw the form, this book provides detailed diagrams and instruction to help you draw animals accurately. The book looks at skeletal structure, torso shape, proportion, perspective and more. The selection of animals both domestic and wild is varied. Animals are shown in different, natural, life-like poses. The book shows how to capture natural animal poses and movement. A variety of media has been used to capture these wonderful drawings. This book provides a thorough grounding suitable for any artists no matter what their skill. I love the tigers, dogs and orang utang best. This is recommended for anyone trying to draw animals.

This is so much better than a lot of the books on drawing animal form. Very impressive combination of anatomical reference & naturalistic studies.
