How to Draw Animals (Charles Liedl)

How to Draw Animals
Charles Liedl
Nonfiction, Art
***+ (Okay/Good)

DESCRIPTION: Using many reference drawings, this book demonstrates how to draw various animals.

REVIEW: If the description seems simple, it's because this book is too short to merit more words. Indeed, there are only five and a half pages of text... two of them being the table of contents. The rest of the 64 pages are devoted to drawings of animals in various poses. Liedl includes several bird reference drawings, and a few more obscure species and poses, but overall offers nothing here that I haven't found in other animal art books. Still, it was only five dollars brand-new; I got that much out of it, at the very least. A decent addition to any artist's reference collection, this certainly is far from the only animal drawing book you'll ever need.
