Drawing Animals (Dover Art Instruction)by Hugh Laidman
Synopses & Reviews
Hugh Laidman headed the U.S. Marine Corp. art program, was commissioned by the National Gallery of Art to do work for NASA, taught art, and was a successful syndicated cartoonist. All his skill and experience as both artist and teacher is distilled in Drawing Animals, a concise, easy-to-follow, beautifully illustrated guide for artists at all levels, beginner to expert. Laidman offers invaluable advice on methods and techniques before proceeding to the heart of the book: expertly rendered, step-by-step, instructional drawings of more than two dozen animals, from cats and dogs to elephants and gorillas. The emphasis throughout is on understanding animal anatomy and behavior as a guide to creating natural, expressive drawings, while developing an individual style and approach. Unabridged republication of the edition published by E. P. Dutton, New York, 1979. 26 lessons with varying numbers of illustrations.
