Description

This superbly illustrated and easy-to-follow guide by an internationally renowned artist and teacher illuminates many biomechanical concepts important in portraying a variety of animals in a wide array of positions. Nearly 150 illustrations, 78 of them in color, offer artists and students a systematic approach to learning proportion, rules of repose and motion, and basic forms.
Following lessons on skeletal and anatomical details, the student learns to create accurate, lively portrayals of horses, cows, dogs, lions, gorillas, bears, and other engaging creatures. Directions are provided for drawing subjects in poses ranging from static to rapidly moving. An excellent guide for drawing animal forms accurately and freely, this guide will be of value to students at all levels of expertise.
The author, according to art critic Marshall Vandruff, "draws animal anatomy with authority and is one of those rare artists who can draw with technical precision as well as with wild expressiveness." Along with his other major work, The Artist's Guide to Human Anatomy, this book represents the distillation of Bammes's insights and ideas. Together, the two volumes comprise an essential addition to the working library of any artist or illustrator.
