    Just look at those drawings on the cover. I want to draw like that but I refuse to just copy them from 3-step tutorials, they just don't feel like my own. That is why I got quite excited when I saw this book. It didn't disappoint. If you want to draw birds that are standing (or flying) right in front of you, this is the book. It has a lot of illustrations and sketches made by British illustrator Raymond Sheppard, that will guide you through the process of visually analyzing and sketching birds.

    "Drawing Birds" is an art book combining the author's guides "How to Draw Birds" and "More Birds to Draw." He assumed that the reader already knows how to draw, so he didn't cover topics like tools or techniques. Rather, he provided tips on how to accurately draw birds.
