I started by buying Melissa's book on drawing flowers and I got stuned about how simple techiniques are to obtain something realy decent in usualy about 6 steps of drawing, but I never would of known them unless I would of bought the book. Now, the same thing happens in this book, 1 page per tutorial, I absolutely love her techniques . DO NOT MISS THIS BOOK, or any of her other books. It never crossed my mind that one can achieve 100 pages with 100 tutorials , 1 tutorial / page and it's not even difficult to follow . When you are good with any technique you can go and apply it to a similar animal . Thank you very much to the author .
