This is, I think, the best book on drawing animals I've seen. Artbookreview

Artist Tim Pond's lively and engaging book fuses science with art, providing you with the skills, techniques and knowledge you need to create sketches of animals filled with life and movement.

'Tim really is a genius in every respect and this really could be the only book on animal drawing you'll ever need.' Paint Magazine

Tim shows you how to observe and draw animals in zoos, farms, wildlife parks and aquariums, teaching you some fascinating facts about the animals along the way and ultimately bringing you closer to nature.

One of the challenges with sketching wildlife is that animals are constantly moving. However, having some basic understanding of biology can help you capture the form, movement and ultimately the spirit of the animal in question. This combination of scientific knowledge and practical guidance is key to creating lively drawings and Tim's ability to convey this in an accessible and engaging way makes this a unique and inspiring guide.

  • Covers a broad range of wildlife including mammals, reptiles, birds fish and insects
  • Includes quick, gestural sketches as well as linear and tonal studies, in a variety of media - pencil, pen and ink and watercolour
  • Suitable for artists of all abilities, as well as professional illustrators and animators
  • Tim Pond's considerable expertise in observing and capturing the natural world in his drawings is reflected in every page of this book. Artists will quickly improve their field and studio work through his instruction.

Foreword by evolutionary biologist and BBC presenter Dr. Ben Garrod, and preface by Dominic Jermey, ZSL Director General.

Product Description:
This comprehensive guide to drawing animals will tell you everything you need to know.

Itll even give you confidence if youve been afraid to try the subject because the complexities of shape, form, structure and features look too daunting.

Tim not only introduces these topics and more, including the all-important perspective, he also suggests ways of simplifying your approach so that youll get perfect results every time.

He calls these little tricks Widgets and Gizmos and they do seem almost like magic.

In practice, theyre just simple grids and block outlines that point you in the right direction before you can overthink the problem.

Youll wonder why no-ones ever told you about them before!

Every type of animal is here, from primates to ungulates and shellfish to amphibians.

Youve never wanted to draw a shrimp?

Tims approach is so enticing and encouraging that youll be itching to do so the moment you see whats possible.

Although thorough, Tims approach is straightforward and never intimidating.

In the anatomical diagrams, the differently-coloured shading makes it easy to follow the structure that underlies the outward appearance of your subject.

The whole book is a work of art that will have you producing your own in a very short time.

Review:
This is, I think, the best book on drawing animals I've seen. The sheer breadth of the coverage and the amount of detail that Tim goes into is breathtaking. More than that, though, it remains at all times completely accessible and you're never left feeling bewildered by the amount of information on every page. --Henry Malt, Artbookreview.net

Tim is a genius in every respect and this really could be the only book on animal drawing you'll ever need. --Paint Magazine

This book is always exciting, inspiring and thoroughly informative. --The Artist
