The Art of Animal Drawing will help artists at all levels improve their ability to draw animals both realistically and as caricatures. Ken Hultgten, a former animator for Walt Disney Studios, offers expert advice on catching the essential movement and character of animals. The emphasis is on drawings (with over 700 illustrations) so the student is able to view the development process of the drawing by example.

Introductory chapters on the special techniques of drawing animals, the use of line, establishing mood and emotion, and conveying action, are followed by instruction on drawing the skeletal and muscular structure, along with the motion of individual animal forms. The author offers details on drawing dogs, horses, deer, cats, bears, foxes, kangaroos, rabbits, squirrels, elephants, cows and bulls, giraffes, camels, gorillas, pigs, and many more. His instruction on animal caricature is especially helpful to all those interested in the subject.

Any artist -- student, amateur, or professional -- who is interested in drawing animals will want to own this essential guide to the subject.
