I got this item shortly after Christmas and look forward to being able to sit down and explore it in detail.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners and children.
Great beginner book for anyone interested in learning to draw.It is arranged easily, great buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Copy Cat
Lee Ames has produced a series of "Draw 50..." about various animals, which all seem very good. I have chosen to start with the cat book, and plan to use the ones about dogs and horses next.

About the layout of the book: Each page covers one of the 50 cats. Ames presents eight steps on each cat/page, from the first sketchy outlines to the finished cat. The first step is just a few lines (about five) lines and shapes, indicating general forms, so that it is easy to copy this and to move along to each subsequent step. Personally I find it easier to use a method of "blocking in" the larger shapes (like a circle for the body, other large shapes, etc) and then moving on to refine the form. I advise that you refer to the finished drawing as you work through the steps, particularly with this method.This should help you get the proportions right and understand how each step relates to the animal as a whole and to stay on target.

About the cats: the 50 cats are nicely balanced with examples from 18 breeds, in various poses; five types of head shots; eight types of wild cats, five "famous cats", including Morris and Felix; six fun poses of kittens; 12 behaviors and emotions, ending with a sleeping cat: Good Night! The book lacks a table of contents, so I have counted these for you.

The complexity is easy to moderate, though it would be best to have AT LEAST a rudimentary knowledge and skill about drawing. (For those who have no experience or "talent", or think that they don't, I highly recommend Ed Emberley's books, such as his "Drawing Book of Animals": cute,easy and fun, fun, fun!) I like the fact that the cat drawings in Lee Ames' book can be completed in a few minutes, since I only have small stretches of time for my drawing hobby.

Most art hobbyists can have success copying the various cats in Lee Ames' book. All of the exercises in the book are basically "contour drawing" from graphics (from a drawing, not from a photo or from real life). Because there is no real shading, perspective, light sources, etc, the drawings look rather flat, without depth. The student can move on to value studies (dark and light), light effects, texture, shape, and so on, to create more depth and realism in drawing.

In sum, this book is fun and a good starting point to depicting cats in a way that can bring success.

5-0 out of 5 stars Top Notch series
I have a very artistic child and another child who isn't quite as artistic.Both love this book and others from the "Draw 50" series.The one has a blast changing little things and making the pictures his own and the other has fun realizing that she too can create some cool pictures with the easy to follow instructions.This particular book has some wonderful cats featured from your common tabby to more unique household cats and large wild kitties.It's definitely worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars step by step nonverbal instruction
I wanted to draw more realistic cats
and this book showed me that I needed to start with the head shape
and not the ears.There was not a lot of writing, just good step-by-step instruction.From my first drawing with this book, my drawings have improved.I highly reccomend this book! ... Read more

Product Description
Something or someone is siphoning off energy from the Milky Way and beyond. Rosik, Commander of the Miramid, from the Province of Gattonia has been sent to identify the source of the power drain and destroy it before it creates a tear in the fabric of the universe. What he finds is a combination of seductress and fiery woman.

Cherry Dare's degree in space engineering gives her a chance to work on a space station. She is thrilled to be a part of the team that will ultimately create a halo surrounding Earth—to save it from all threats—present and future. When a drop-dead-handsome man breaks into one of the labs, she immediately knows he's a threat—to her heart and peace of mind.

Once the gloves come off, Rosik and Cherry are plunged into a ballistic web of treachery, deceit, and death. A pheromone collision waiting to happen—an all consuming love that no man-made halo can contain and no man or beast can tear asunder.

Product Description
Nestled in the woods near Center Point, Indiana, The Exotic Feline Rescue Center houses more than 160 big cats—ranging from lions, tigers, leopards, and pumas, to bobcats and more obscure breeds like the caracal, serval, ocelot, and lynx. But all of the cats at EFRC have one thing in common: they are predators that have suffered abuse and escaped extermination because of EFRC’s efforts.

Through astonishing images and compelling text, Stephen D. McCloud tells each cat’s story. Meet Sinbad, Molly, Sierra, Montana, Tika, and others. Included with the photos in this book are background stories, anecdotes, and inside information on the personalities of feline residents at EFRC.

Stephen D. McCloud heard about the Center in a casual conversation with a friend, and decided to take his camera and visit. In the last three years, McCloud and his camera have spent hundreds of hours at the Center. He has taken the time to get to know each of the cats: their likes, their dislikes, their quirks, and their stories. The affection he has for them is clearly reflected in his photographs. It’s an incredible collection, and choosing only 100 or so for the book proved a daunting task.

A portion of the proceeds from each sale of this book will be donated to The Exotic Feline Rescue Center. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful!
This is the most heart-warming and beautiful book!Tugs at your heart strings while filling you with love, joy, compassion, tenderness and respect. Your heart just opens right up as you feel for these magnificent creatures.I was afraid to read this book at first.Thought that it would hurt too much.I visited EFRC's website online, fell in love with each featured feline and then read their histories.My family visited the facility (Exotic Feline Rescue Center) last year and it was one of the most powerful, touching and profound experiences of my life.I bought the book there and read it in the car all the way home from Indiana to North Carolina!

The book is well written and the pictures are beautiful.Gift yourself this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Book
I've been getting more aware of the plight of abandoned, neglected and abused big cats in the last year.It's an issue that deserves more attention and support.McCloud's photos prove a picture is worth a thousand words over and over.These big cats, being cats, are proud, dignified and graceful even in their captive plight.And they are the lucky ones! This book is a wonderful way of getting the message out. There are more of his photos you can link to from the ERFC website: www.exoticfelinerescuecenter.org too. Many of those beg for yet another book!
This book will bring you the mixed feelings of awe at the cats beauty and sorrow for what we humans have done to them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Pictures...even better cause!
This is a wonderful overview of the Exotic Feline Rescue Center.Stephen McCloud has obviously fallen in love with the cats at the center and it shows.There are SO many animals that have fallen victim to the exotic pet trade...the Feline Rescue Center provides a safe haven for some of the lucky ones, that now call it home.This book provides an intimate look at some of the rescues living at the center and allows the reader to look at the cats on a more personal level.The exotic pet trade is a HUGE problem in our world today and only with the help of people like Mr. McCloud educating people through photographs and information on their plight, will more people get involved and raise the necessary funds to end the vicious cycle.Wild animals belong in the WILD, not behind bars or in canned hunts for trophies.The Exotic Feline Rescue Center provides as close to a natural environment that is able for these poor cats forced to live in captivity.Stephen McCloud does a wonderful job with stories backed up by fabulous pictures.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book
The book does the Exotic Feline Rescue Center justice.Stephen has captured the animals through wonderful photography. My granddaughter loved the center and enjoys the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book made me cry!
If you love big cats like I do this is the ultimate book.Filled with striking photographs and heart-wrenching-yet-uplifting stories, I was flooded with emotion as I read.Lots of emotions.This is not an easy read, especially when confronted with stories of people abusing these majectic animals or forcing them to travel en masse in the back of a Volkswagon van... but these lions, tigers, cheetahs, panthers and lynx have all been very fortunate to be part of this book.The photos are as beautiful as they are intimate and it's like the photographer has actually captured a tiny bit of each cat's personality.BUY THIS BOOK. ...
