Description

Featuring an array of adorable baby animals, this charming bookoffers simple, step-by-step instructions for creating incredibly lifelike drawings in pencil. Baby Animals opens with in-depth information about selecting tools and materials, transferring photo references, and understanding values. Then accomplished artist Cindy Smith shares her passion for the animal kingdom with readers and demonstrates her special shading techniques to accurately depict a wide range of textures––including fur, feathers, and skin. The secret to Cindy’s amazingly realistic drawings is in the minute details, and she divulges all her creative tricks in this essential guide! Aspiring artists with a soft spot for young animals also will find a wealth of irresistible illustrations to study, copy, and “awww” over.

The author

A native of Boise, Idaho, Cindy Smith has been producing artwork since early childhood. Although wildlife is her favorite subject, Cindy enjoys the challenge of creating remarkably realistic pencil drawings of anything—from people and buildings to flowers and automobiles. She also employs a variety of other media, such as oil, acrylic, and watercolor pencil; her collection of works even includes digital art and videos. Cindy spends many weekends camping, fishing, and taking photo references for her art in the mountains and deserts of Idaho with her family. Some of Cindy’s other hobbies are basket weaving, crocheting, cross stitching, and carving rhea eggs.
