As every artist knows, to draw an animal well, it helps to know and understand its personality and behavior in order to express its individual features. Using a sequence of studies and step-by-step progressions, Drawing Animals, demonstrates how to draw species from elephants and bears to cats and dogs. Each chapter focuses on a specific animal, using this formula: a view of the animal from three perspectives; a breakdown of the basic shapes of the body and head; drawing clearly showing the animals skeletal, musculature, and surface anatomy; a detailed step-by-step demonstration; drawings that show the animal in characteristic behaviors and poses. This is the only resource you need to draw lifelike animals of all kinds. 159 black and white pgs.
