“We have more to learn from animals than the animals have to learn from us.” –  Anthony Douglas Williams

Animals are fascinating drawing subjects for most artists. Drawing lively animal portraits brings with it another level of excitement, not to mention challenges, such as bringing out that mischievous spark in a dog’s eyes or that vicious promise of impending violence in a lion’s eyes. The facial proportions of the animals, the fur or the pattern of scales on their bodies are yet other challenges difficult to master.

Not anymore.

In this book, you will learn how to draw expressive and lively portraits of a range of animals, from your humble house pets to vicious forest dwellers.

What will you learn in this book?

  • All about values and how they are especially important in a pen and ink drawing. How to determine the values and use them in a drawing.
  • Pen and ink drawing techniques.
  • Materials available for pen and ink drawing. 
  • Shading techniques.
  • Ink painting and techniques.
  • Foreshortening – the concept and its usage in drawing animal portraits.
