I m an artist of 25 plus years with skills in drawing, painting, airbrush, some sculpting and very little in detailed carving I chose this book to gain a strong baseline for carving While the patterns in this book are nice they lack the detail needed for a beginner There are no measurements or dimensional ratios that I could fine for any project in this book The only photos of finished projects are on the cover and they re small All of the patterns lack the beginning stages of carving, save one Pages 74 76 is the only representation of how to begin your carving It demonstrates this on one animal only the Buck I fully expected all patterns to contain the beginning stages and photos of the finished sculpture Also, this book concen You could learn just as much looking at a picture of the animal you want to carve as you can with this book
