The goal of many artists is to create a drawing that looks so real that it seems you could reach out and touch it. With easy-to-follow instruction and breathtakingly realistic artwork, this book makes it possible! Step-by-Step Studio: Lifelike Subjects teaches beginners how to create convincing, detailed drawings of animals, flowers, and landscapes. Readers will find in-depth information on tools and materials and drawing techniques (including a section on creating animal textures), as well as a range of step-by-step projects to copy, admire, and learn from.
