Drawing animals 101 : how to draw animals with a veterinarian's eye

Mari Suzuki (Author)
"Mari Suzuki is both an artist and a veterinarian. With this unique perspective, she provides meticulous instruction on how to draw a host of animals in Drawing Animals 101. Originally published in Japan, this book introduces the reader to the proportioning of various animals, basic skeletal forms, how muscles attach, movements, and other physical fundamentals in a simple, comprehensible manner suitable for beginners and experienced artists alike. While a varied array of animals is included-from birds and farm animals to the exciting animals of Africa-dogs and cats are used as the basis for drawing other four-legged creatures, because they display a wide range of movements and can be easily observed. Each step-by-step drawing project is done in pencil, giving the work a genuine figure-drawing feel for the winged and four-footed. Suzuki's insights into the physical mechanics of animals make for instruction that is both detailed and easy to grasp. This comprehensive book will help any artist capture the graceful movements and poses of their favorite animals"-- Provided by publisher
