For them, and for the many aspiring artists that love animals, here is an excellent guide to quick sketching. 5-Minute Sketching -- Animals and Pets comprises 60 exercises for all artists that wish to learn how to sketch, or get tips on how to finesse their existing skills and get rid of bad habits.
