This exciting new title in the "Draw and Sketch" series shows readers how to render any animal they see with skill and accuracy. David Boys starts by providing an overview of basic equipment, guidelines for getting into the right frame of mind of draw, and hints for finding the right subject matter. Next, readers will learn how to see any animal as a whole shape, rather than as a collection of individual details. Boys also provides instructions for getting proportions right. Anatomy, fur, feathers and other details follow, along with more complex issues, such as light, shade, backgrounds, reflections and color. Specific exercises will help readers learn these various skills as they draw big cats, camels, pelicans, monkeys, penguins, elephants, deer and more.
