Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A description of the entire process of recreating animals in three dimensions, from the initial gathering of information to the completion of museum-standard models. The author uses non-technical language to explain all the background needed for a basic understanding of the subject. He examines: the anatomy of tetrapods (four-limbed animals, including birds, mammals and reptiles); the skeletons, joints, muscles, ligaments and organs; the parts which determine the outward shape; how to obtain information from photographs and other sources; the methodological construction of working drawings, which enable accurate results to be obtained; and how to use the drawings to make the model using profile gauges, armatures and maquettes. Five drawing projects are described in detail - a frog, tortoise, pigeon, cat and elephant.
