This was exactly what I needed. Im an artist who loves drawing and painting and sculpting and everything in between. However I was terrible at drawing and painting animals, but I wanted to get better. When I saw this book online I knew I had to get it, although I didn't know how much it would help me with my artistic skills. But now after a few months of practicing the drawings and paintings in that book I can say i'm proud of some of my animal drawings and paintings, which I couldn't say before. I would recommend this book for any intermediate artist, especially if they want to improve their skills with drawing animals. I let my cousin borrow this book and she said it also improved her artistic skills by so much. I still look at this book everyday after months of having, and I would say this is my favorite art tutorial book of all time, and I cant recommend it enough.
