Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Animals have been a part of human artwork from its very beginnings. The earliest ancient paintings, found hidden away in caves, feature animals like the aurochs (wild cow). Egyptian art celebrated animals like the cat with style and beauty. Through the centuries, the horse has inspired paintings, sculptures, jewelry, and even armor. In modern times, cat and dog art sells many T-shirts, calendars, coffee mugs, store brands, and other items. Both art and domestic animals are part of our everyday life, and the two combine together wonderfully...This book features traditional drawing, and most of the drawing instructions are centered on pencil, pen, and paper work. However, even solely digital artists can learn about animal anatomy and features, and gain insight into building up texture and fur.
