Step-by-step line drawings are included for each project, with shaded patterns illustrating depth and shadow. Genre-specific techniques for wildlife creatures are given exclusive study in this resource and include difficult detailing elements such as creating facial features, and texturing fur, hair, and feathers.

Additionally, woodcarvers will learn how to add finishing details to their projects with woodburning, Danish oil, and paint.
