Description

Featuring 500 drawings of all sorts of creatures, big and small, this inspiring sketchbook is designed to offer artists, designers, and doodlers a fun and sophisticated collection of illustration fun.

Each spread in Draw 500 Awesome Animals features a curated selection of drawings of animals based on a theme (animal species, type, shape, marking pattern, or movement), each comprised of simple combinations of lines and shapes, with blank space for you to draw your versions. You’ll find hundreds of inspiring illustrated examples of a wide array of animals—cat, giraffe, seal, elephant, whale, and much, much more! This is not a step-by-step technique book, but rather a stylized guidebook where the animals are simplified, modernized, and reduced to the most basic elements to show you how simple abstract shapes and forms meld to create the building blocks of any item that you want to draw.

Each of the interpretations provides a different, interesting approach to drawing a single item, providing loads of inspiration for your own drawing. Presented in the author’s uniquely creative style, this engaging and motivational practice book provides a new take on the world of sketching, doodling, and designing.
