Ed Emberley's Drawing Book of Animals
Draw a huge variety of creatures from ants, bugs, and polliwogs to pigs, cats, and dogs, and up to elephants, giraffes, and dragons.
These simple books guide you in drawing humorous looking but realistic animals using the simplest of shapes. In Ed Emberley style, the directions for each of the many different drawings are shown step-by-step starting with a basic shape and adding shapes, dots, lines and other minimal marks to acquire a finished representation of an animal, person, vehicle, or object. The process is simple, and the finished product looks quite good. You could almost say that this style of drawing is "creative doodling." Best of all, it requires no advanced artistic talent to master! If you can draw shapes, squiggles, and lines, then you can draw everything in these books! Full color, 32 pgs, pb. - Melissa
