Draw Realistic Animals is a book written by the accomplished wildlife artist- Robert Louis Caldwell, who shares the techniques behind his finely detailed pencil drawings for beginners and professional artists.
The book features a variety of subjects and backgrounds through 14 demonstrations- with specific focus on techniques for drawing fur, scales, feathers and more. The step by step demonstrations involves subjects ranging from domestic pets to birds, reptiles, big cats, and elephants. The in-depth instructions clarify the basic concepts of drawing through: composition, value, shape, form and lighting. It shows you how to develop composition, build movement, creating shade, tips for lifting key highlights and teasing out finishing details to bring animals to life in graphite. It also includes expert advice on using reference photos to create strong and original compositions.
As Robert suggests- here are no 'tricks'. It's simply a matter of seeing the subject in terms of basic shapes, then using value shifts to build layers and create volume. From these humble beginnings, you'll learn how to evoke that essential spark that elevates shades of gray graphite to living, breathing wildlife art.
