Renowned artist and expert instructor Frank J. Lohan shows how to capture the individual personalities of cats of all kinds. Lohan's highly descriptive, artist-friendly text is accompanied by more than 400 detailed, easy-to-follow illustrations. Nearly 60 step-by-step lessons advance from the fundamentals of line drawing to the quick and easy creation of appealing, lifelike sketches of domestic breeds, lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs, and other cats.
Suitable for artists at all levels, this guide demonstrates the geometric structure of feline bodies with a simple series of boxes and lines. Tips include the use of pen and pencil to enhance the "furry" impression of a cat's coat, creating shadows in both dark and light fur, and adding depth and sparkle to a cat's eyes. Each lesson is structured so that artists can apply the sketching principles to a wide array of real-life subjects.
