A great book for the average drawer to boost their work. Although I disagree with some of the techniques, this is possibly the most realistic horse drawing book I've seen so far, and I'm proud to have it part of my collection.
This book is pretty good, but I don't like the method she introduces. There's good drawings to practice with, thought. Some seem to be a bit advanced.
