The blank page can be daunting, but 10 Step Drawing: Animals offers an easy jumping-off point for any doodler to be creative.
Featuring illustrated tutorials for drawing 75 adorable (and sometimes grumpy-looking!) creatures - from exotic animals such as a toucan, cheetah and flamingo, to aquatic mammals and fish like the dolphin, penguin and octopus, along with furry friends close to home such as a cat, a dog and a horse - every image is fun and easy to replicate in ten simple steps, using just a pen and paper.
Handy prompts at every stage help the reader without giving them dry, prescriptive instructions, and every animal has its own distinctive character. 10 Step Drawing: Animals is sure to encourage even the most nervous amateur artist to dust off their pen and doodle.
