Easy and fun to use, this guide shows aspiring artists of all ages how to draw creatures of the forest. Even if you’ve never been able to create a likeness of an animal, you’ll find it simple to follow these step-by-step diagrams. Using circles, ovals, and other shapes, the diagrams demonstrate how to create images of common animals such as a skunk, fox, raccoon, and moose. They also depict some of the woodlands’ more exotic denizens — a forest wolf spider, a star-nosed mole, a sharp-shinned hawk, and a silver-haired bat. Not only will you learn to form realistic drawings, you’ll be on the way to mastering the basics of shape development and understanding the fundamentals of form and dimension.
