Drawn and written by former Walt Disney Studios artist Ken Hultgren in 1950, this classic of art technique - along with our Muybridge titles - is the best available guide to the motion analysis, construction and caricature of animals in motion. From a clear understanding of anatomy and using construction drawings and action analysis, the emphasis is on the process of creating the sense of movement through line drawings. There are hundreds of examples and motion sequences, showing muscle movement, proportion and stance, emotion and action, underlying skeletal structure, close ups of heads, feet and many other aspects. 
Divided into chapters based on animal types and different aspects of the art, there are sections covering the following areas: Mood and Feeling, Use of Line, Action Analysis, Brush Technique, Composition in Animal Grouping. Animal types and groups include: The Horse Family, Deer, The Cat Family, Cows and Bulls, Giraffes, Camels, Gorillas, Pigs, Dogs, Foxes, Elephants and more.
