How to Create Realistic Animals Using Colored Pencils
By Gemma Gylling

Have you ever looked at wildlife art and wondered how the artist created the fur's shine or have you thought the eyes looked so real you believed the eye was really wet?  When an artist uses the right side of their brain, it becomes easy for them to see the object that they want to create. I believe that when you start to break an object down into small sections so you see only lines, shapes and colors, it becomes easier to achieve the realistic look of shiny fur or a wet eye.
