This book will take you through the process of drawing beautiful animals with colored pencils. You’ll learn how to create the main lines of your picture with an easy to use grid method for breaking down each section of a reference picture into smaller, manageable pieces. Every tutorial consists illustrations with short explanations for each step based on the author's personal experience. Since the author is a self-taught artist, the material is presented clearly with friendly instructions that everyone can follow, instead of like the stuff found in educational materials or many other how-to-draw books. The book is written and illustrated by a recognized fine artist, whose unique drawings are popular around the world.
This book also covers techniques for creating textures like fur, skin, that are traditionally difficult to make appear realistic. You’ll learn tips for blending colors and creating subtle gradients in your drawings. You’ll also learn the pros and cons of using colorless wax blenders and in what situations they are best used.
