All About Drawing Horses & Pets (1/12)*

FaveCrafts has a giveaway for a great drawing book for kids, but I do not see why an adult would not enjoy it for basic animal drawing tips, as well.

As Maria Nerius, FaveCrafts reviewer says, this is "Recommended for children 6, this book will delight both boys and girls. You start with basic shapes and begin to fill in the details. My favorite part of the book is the Getting Started section, which explains that the artist must see the shapes in the subject matter. Shapes like circles, ovals, and triangles become the building blocks of any animal. I enjoyed the exercise on page 3 and found all the shapes! The book is also full of Fun Facts that add interest to the subject matter like the fact that the first house cats were descendants of African and European wild cats. Walter Foster has a strong reputation of publishing books that reach the budding child or teen artist. Bright, well illustrated, and on trend, this book can help you learn drawing at any age!"

Hop on over to FaveCrafts and enter to win this one.
