It is perfect for children and beginner artists alike. The drawings are simple but fun. and will sharpen your observation skills as well as improve your drawing ability. There are different styles and lots of animals to complete so something for everyone. Overall a great little book.
Definitely a book I'm interested in purchasing for my 6 year old niece who loves to draw!
The first several pages provide advice and instruction and the remaining pages are dedicated to sketching 100 cartoon animals. Each cartoon shows a progression of six steps from initial lines to finished cartoon. All simply shown on the same page. Very clean and simple. This format really "draws you in" and makes it look so easy that you want to just give it a try.

Independent animated film maker Keilidh Bradley presents her book "Draw Like an Artist: 100 Cartoon Animals. Step-by-Step Creative Line Drawing - A Sourcebook for Aspiring Artists and Designers", published by Quarto Publishing Group – Quarry. The book is part of the series "Draw Like an Artist... " The book is divided into nine sections: 1) Domestic Mammals, 2) African Mammals, 3) Asian Mammals, 4) Australian Mammals, 5) European Mammals, , 6) Mammals, 7) Amphibians and Aquatic Creatures, 8) Birds, and 9) Reptiles. In the introduction under "How to use the book" Bradley writes: "In cartooning, there are limitless styles available to draw in—the only limit is your imagination! Therefore, this book demonstrates a range of approaches to animal character design, from flat, graphic shapes to more realistic and dimensional construction. I recommend trying a few of the approaches to identify one you feel most comfortable with, then do more in that style. As you progress, you can take the skills learned from following one method to tackle more challenging animals" (p.6).
The book presents a great variety of animals. Although the last sketch for every animal is done in black-gray-white it needs little imagination to color them if one so desires. I have to confess that I am a beginner when it comes to drawing. Every animal is presented with six sketches which will be really a help for the aspiring artist. I highly can recommend this book for beginners who like to engage in drawing.
The complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley free of charge. I was under no obligation to offer a positive review. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Draw Like an Artist: 100 Cartoon Animals by Keilidh Bradley is a fantastic beginner manual to drawing animals. The simple step by step process to creating these animals is clear and concise. A great beginner course for people learning how to draw. The variety in the animals is perfect as well, there are lots of choices of animals making this book great for a wide range of people. Learning how to draw, with a focus on animals, has never been easier.
