This is a really neat guide! My teen daughter, who has had a lot of art training and is very artistic really liked this book. She enjoyed drawing a few of the creatures right away and plans to work on more of the lessons in this book. She said that it is important to be very detail oriented as you work from picture guide to picture guide. Here are the sketches that she ended up with:
I also tried my hand at a sketch. I have no art training, so I chose to try a sketch that seemed on the simpler side. I tried to pay attention to detail. I think it went well for someone without art training. Here is my sketch:
I am going to have my elementary aged daughters try to draw from this book, but I think it may be a bit advanced for them. My recommendation is for children or adults who enjoy drawing and are very detail oriented, this book will probably be a fun resource!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
