Featuring numerous illustrations, this handbook demonstrates how to draw a variety of animals, from primates to cats and dogs. Each section deals with a separate animal and includes sketches of the basic form of the animal as viewed from the front, back and side. Muscles, surface anatomy and close-ups of specific features such as heads, paws and legs are included, as well as typical expressions. All drawings are accompanied by detailed captions. The text will be of benefit to illustrators, amateur and professional wildlife artists and naturalists.
