Learn to draw animals! Start with basic shapes, then make them cute!
by Ai Akikusa
Beginning artists of all ages will enjoy this title. The book begins with some general observations and directions before going on to feature lots and lots of animals to draw. Just some of the critters found in these pages include the Shiba Inu (a new pup has moved across the way from me), the polar bear, a horse, a cat, a giraffe, a kangaroo a koala and many more.
I never consider myself to be a person with artistic prowess. However, I feel that I can follow these instructions and will enjoy practicing.

Drawing Lessons for Beginners: Cute Animals
When you look at the shapes of animals, there are bumps and curves in unexpected areas.
Animals are built differently from one another—some can run faster, some can eat more easily, and some can swim better. It can be interesting to draw animals when you look closely at these kinds of characteristics.
I’d like you to enjoy observing the characteristics of these animals rather than copying the examples. Then, you’ll eventually notice the unique aspects of each animal.
As you get used to drawing animals, you can try drawing different motions or positions such as running or sleeping, or you can even try drawing the animal upright.
