From Walter Foster's popular Realistic series comes Realistic Animals in Colored Pencil, a comprehensive visual guide to drawing various animals with incredible photorealism.
Like the first two books in the series - Realistic Portraits in Colored Pencil and Realistic Still Life in Colored Pencil - this book offers step-by-step instructions for drawing in colored pencil. Each project details the specific colored pencils used so that readers can create their own photorealistic art, just like the expert artists showcased in the series. The animals featured in the book are popular ones, such as horses, pets, wild animals, and more. Readers can also learn about essential colored pencil drawing techniques, such as blending, layering, burnishing, shading, and more, in addition to how to create textures like teeth, eyes, and fur. The author of the book is a well-known colored pencil artist who received the prestigious Colored Pencil Magazine's Artist of the Year for 2020 and who has a large following on social media.
