Review and giveaway: 10 Step Drawing: Animals by Heather Kilgour

Review and giveaway: 10 Step Drawing: Animals by Heather Kilgour

With two creative children I need a constant stream of ideas to keep them occupied. Having exhausted our crafting cupboard and my patience I was so thankful when a copy of 10 Step Drawing: Animals landed on our doormat over half term. Both my children love to draw and have endless notebooks full of their scribbles. It was time to take their drawing to the next level and 10 Step Drawing: Animals has been a great introduction for us all. The books aims to help you learn to draw 75 different creatures in an illustrated style, in 10 simple visual steps.

10 Step Drawing: Animals by Heather Kilgour

The blank page can be a little daunting, but 10 Step Drawing: Animals offers an easy jumping-off point for any doodler to be creative. It’s a great book for adults and children who want to learn to draw.

10 Step Drawing: Animals by Heather Kilgour

The book features illustrated tutorials for drawing 75 adorable creatures  from exotic animals (such as a cheetah and flamingo), to aquatic mammals and fish (like the dolphin, penguin and octopus), along with  furry friends closer to home (such as a cat, a dog and a horse). Every image is fun and easy to replicate in ten simple steps, using just a pen and paper.

10 Step Drawing: Animals by Heather Kilgour

Everyone has a favourite animal and I was pleased to see a dolphin (which my 8 year old loves), along with an otter (my 6 year olds’ favourite animal). They were excited to be able to have a go and the 10 steps means you get instant results. I like the way you can add character with colour and really bring the animals to life.

10 Step Drawings: Animals by Heather Kilgour was published by Search Press and is available to purchase via their website at £8.99.
