Review:

"In this drawing guide, Amberlyn first addresses general dog anatomy, then moves on to capturing puppies at various stages of development. A wealth of specific dog breeds, both common, such as the beagle, and more unusual, such as the vizsla, are featured throughout.... A few detailed step-by-step projects and lots of instructive sketches and diagrams are provided in each chapter. This guide will delight and entertain beginner dog-loving artists."
—Library Journal

"This is the how-to book that wannabe-canine artists deserve to find under their Christmas tree. The artist gears instructions toward pencil, pen-and-ink, and digital media users, so it works for a variety of artists and offers step-by-step suggestions for how to capture 100 breeds, from working dogs to the hounds and toy groups. Amberlyn starts at the basics: dog anatomy, covering the dog from head to toe as well as coats, movements, and expressions. Anyone will learn lots about her favorite dogs from studying this useful illustration instruction manual."
—Bay Woof

“What are you waiting for? Find a pencil and some paper and get started—no matter how your drawing turns out, your dog is guaranteed to love it!"
—The Bark
