Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up—Hodges and Cibos have created a thorough guide. Describing the creatures in terms of a sliding scale from human to animal, they begin with some tips on basic anatomy and style. Introductory material includes several versions of an impala that illustrate how various levels of "human" characteristics affect the overall character. The rest of the instruction is grouped by the kind of animal portrayed—felines, canines, equines, etc. Full-color spreads throughout show what can be achieved with practice, and the book concludes with chapters on color and perspective. Lanza includes watercolors of elves and similar creatures such as sprites, gnomes, and dwarves. Materials and basic skills are explained before moving on to chapters that explore faces, figures, and settings. This approach makes the projects accessible to artists who may not have worked with watercolor before. Sidebars feature mini demonstrations focusing on flowers or other details. Useful coloring instructions specify brush and color choices. These fantasy-friendly books provide plenty to explore.—Lisa Glasscock, Columbine Public Library, Littleton, CO

Alot of drawing books I own give step by step instructions to drawing a specific character. How to Draw Furries does something a little different. It not only gives the step by step instructions, but it also provides instruction on how to color and how to use perspective in backgrounds. The most impressive quality of this book is that it opens up new possibilities for anthro artists. It covers a wide range of different types of 'furries' that spans not only from cats and dogs, but to birds, horses, and rodents as well. Beautiful and well done.

For all the stigma that "furries" get, it's amazing just how detailed some of the artwork is at times. Much of it is incredible because of the artist's knowledge of both human and animal anatomy.

I picked up a copy of this book because I do dabble in anthropomorphic drawings from time to time. I usually have a hard time with animal facial details, longer snouts like many dogs especially, but this book gives a good visual breakdown of how it should look. The same holds true for the other types of animals covered in the book.

At the start of the book there is a (very) quick breakdown of human anatomy and each chapter goes over the defining features of the animal type. It's not a perfect resource, but it does help greatly if you're trying to wrap your mind around getting your drawing to look like what you want.

My only complaint really is that it doesn't go into greater detail with the anatomy, but if it had, the book could easily be twice as thick. It would also end up being quite repetitive at times.

Artists with some previous skill would probably get the most out of this book. Even advanced artists could draw some inspiration.

I'm a young artist taking on different forms of drawing, painting and sculpting digitally. I was having difficulty correctly applying animal characteristics to humanoid figures (Anthropomorphic Beings). It's a great book for young and older artists alike taking on the furry (same as Anthropomorphic) world of art. I wouldn't go off the book forever as, if your like me, take on other habits that naturally grow on you over time. For instance, how you start out sketching you may draw differently then the book like more sharper boxy edges then round and natural - it's more of a personal preference then anything.

Lindsay Cibos has one of the better how to draw anthropomorphic books out there, though it still falls a bit short of upper professional levels. A few quirks of anatomy leave me wanting. The lessons are easy to follow, but I would recommend an actual anatomy book of animals and humans for those who prefer a more realistic style over cartoony or anime.

My nine year old daughter who has been taking drawing classes loves this book. This is her favorite drawing book. She loves Furries so she is drawn to this book. She has books on Manga, Anime, Chibi, etc. but she prefers this one. She reads this book and uses it to practice.

There are many good "How to Draw" books but if your child loves "Furries", this is the book to buy.

I bought this book for my son who really enjoys flurries and drawing them. He said that the book was very detailed and he loved the sample furries that the artist drew. He said he would tell his friends interested in drawing flurries about the book. He ordered the author's other book as well.

Furries are a mixing of animals and humans with the emphasis on unique traits. The result is a cartoon with character, personality, and attitude.

The book covers cats, dogs, horses, rodents, and birds. It provides step-by-step illustrations of the face, full body, and action poses. Then there are tips on clothing your creation, adding colors, and roughing in 2 and 3 point perspective.
