Starting with the tools you will need and a tutorial on building a lightbox, then moving on to inking basics and techniques, this book is filled with beautiful illustrations and includes  practice pages for you to work your own magic on. My personal favorite was the owl in flight. I love the bonus content on the publisher's website! I received an electronic copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 5/5 stars.

Illustration Studio: Inking Animals is a fabulous book. I love the layout and process of instruction. I've done a lot of ink work as a technical artist, but haven't really known where to start drawing animals. I am so excited to get my hands on the print copy. It will be a wonderful guide for me as well as a great coffee table book that I'm sure will fascinate my guests..
