Lucy's beautiful and confident illustrations in this new book will have you reaching for your pencils after only a few pages.

Her drawings get proportion, shape, perspective and texture right time after time and her subjects seem to come alive on the page.

After a brief introduction to materials and techniques, the book moves on to a series of short demonstrations, divided into wild and domestic animals, that includes meerkats, elephants, tigers, dogs, cats and horses. Each one shows you how to work from the basic outline, adding layers and detail and building up to the texture of hair or fur. Working in this way, you can be sure that you are keeping the proportions right and that your result will have that lifelike look.

As well as being the species you're most likely to encounter, these also feature a good variety of shapes and structures, allowing you to develop techniques that will help you draw almost any species.

Previous Masterclass volumes have packed an enormous amount into their 96 pages, and Lucy's work is no exception.

Book: Search Press. 96 Pages. Paperback. Black & White Throughout.

  2. Try It, You\'ll Surprise Yourself. Review by B Hester

    Many of us are wary of animal compositions, as they appear very difficult to reproduce. This book is a fantastic help, from creating a good outline, establishing tones/textures/shadows for that realism we require, to finally adding just enough details for a pleasing portrait.
    Whilst primarily intended for pencil drawing, greatly assists those who wish to/or try other mediums.Lucy, what a truly fantastic book. (Posted on 19/02/2013)

  6. Drawing Masterclass Animals Review by Pamela Walters

    I found this really inspiring because it showed me how to get to grips with the basic drawing, a problem I hadn\'t really started to address before launching into painting them. Getting the basic drawing right has made all the difference to my progress. (Posted on 18/02/2013)
