Synopsis

Targeted at young aspiring artists seeking to develop their technical skills and build a repertoire of subjects, particularly animals. Acclaimed author Lee J. Ames shows readers how to draw dozens of the most beautiful and fascinating birds from around the world with a comprehensive, step-by-step approach. His distinctive drawing method has proven to be successful for children and adults alike over the past 40 years, and has shown artists, from the beginner to advanced levels, how to draw everything from animals to airplanes. The revised Draw 50 series gives an old favorite an exciting, new look. 

Excerpt

As you work, it's a good idea, from time to time, to hold a mirror to your sketch. The image in the mirror frequently shows distortion you might not recognize otherwise.
In the book you will notice that the new step additions (in color) are printed darker so they can be clearly identified. But be sure to keep all of your construction steps very lighty. Here's where the kneaded eraser can be useful. You can lighten a pencil stroke that is too dark by pressing on it with the eraser.
