about this item

Breathe Life into Your Animal Drawings

Wildlife artist Doug Lindstrand has spent 30+ years observing animals in nature and capturing them on paper. In this book, he distills his expertise into key lessons for drawing any animal in a charming, realistic style.

Inside, a whole herd of step-by-step exercises and demonstrations (43, to be exact!) cover a broad range of subjects and challenges, including how to draw:

  • Short, long and patterned fur
  • Mouths, eyes, ears and horns
  • Various poses, including seated, standing and moving
  • A diversity of animals, domestic and wild--from housecats to big cats, from tiny cottontails to massive African elephants.

Nothing intimidating here! Starting with easy sketches, you'll learn to gradually refine basic shapes into lifelike dogs, wolves, deer, sheep, horses, bears, giraffes, owls, eagles, geese and other magnificent creatures. With this classic and time-tested approach, you'll be able to draw not only the animals illustrated on these pages, but any animal that touches your artistic soul.
