So in all the time I've been trying to draw better, I've been focusing almost completely on the Figure. While I'm far, far from mastering it, I do want to expand my skill set a bit more and try my hand at drawing animals... But it seems like such a huge, daunting subject! After spending years staring at the same (human) skeleton and muscle structure and stuff, the variety and complexity in the animal kingdom is scaring me a little, haha.
So, where would you recommend I start? What exercises, studies? Any recommended books or resources would be wonderful too. (I have this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Animal-Anatomy- ... al+anatomy
but it seems more like a reference book than anything.)
