Book Description

Learn to draw 26 different breathtaking African animals from scratch in six easy steps.

Capture the splendour of the African savannah by drawing this collection of stunning animals and birds. Watch them come to life in six easy steps. Award-winning artist Jonathan Newey teaches you to transform simple shapes into the iconic Big Five (lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant and buffalo), as well as towering giraffes, distinctive zebras and striking flamingos.

There are 26 different animals to create, in a variety of poses and styles. Each project starts with a few basic outlines and progresses into a finished tonal drawing, and a final coloured version shows you how to develop your drawing even further. Perfect for beginners, as well as budding artists, you’ll be amazed how easily you too can draw African animals with this inspiring guide.
