This book goes over how to paint
-various cats of different colors
-various dogs of different breeds
-a few idea examples without instructions of tropical animals etc.
-Will you learn from this book how to paint extremely hyper realistic animals that make you second guess if the rock is truly an animal, or a rock? No. But it’s a definite start and still, I think it’s a good book for those with more intermediate skills beyond an absolute beginner.
-I enjoyed that various angles and perspectives are offered for the same animal, which helps with picking out different shaped rocks and placement of an animal if the referenced pet photo has the dog head or body for example, angled in different directions.
-I mostly enjoyed that the book offered “ideas” showcasing examples of painted rocks to their pet pictures. These don’t have step by steps, but I feel once you understand how to paint fur and you know what you’re doing, you have the knack for it and you begin to look beyond text instructions and seek other examples to gather inspiration. I wish a book existed with nothing but this type of showcasing.
-I mostly struggle with fur, and the drawn illustrations showing fur directional patterns were helpful.
-I’m a very visual learner and tend to skim over all the text instructions.
-for intermediates wanting to jump to advanced realistic skills, I would seek out online videos and tutorials instead. If a book like this exists, please let me know!
