Lucy's beautiful and confident illustrations in this new book will have you reaching for your pencils after only a few pages.
Her drawings get proportion, shape, perspective and texture right time after time and her subjects seem to come alive on the page.
After a brief introduction to materials and techniques, the book moves on to a series of short demonstrations, divided into wild and domestic animals, that includes meerkats, elephants, tigers, dogs, cats and horses. Each one shows you how to work from the basic outline, adding layers and detail and building up to the texture of hair or fur. Working in this way, you can be sure that you are keeping the proportions right and that your result will have that lifelike look.
As well as being the species you're most likely to encounter, these also feature a good variety of shapes and structures, allowing you to develop techniques that will help you draw almost any species.
Previous Masterclass volumes have packed an enormous amount into their 96 pages, and Lucy's work is no exception.
