I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
All opinions are my own*

Part of the best-selling Draw 50 series this step-by-step guide to drawing various fish, sharks, oysters, bottlenose dolphins, crabs, polar bears, coral, and other ocean life is for artists of all levels.

In this new installment of Lee J. Ames's beloved Draw 50 series, readers will find easy-to-follow, step-by-step visual lessons on sketching and rendering all kinds of sea and ocean-dwelling creatures. Animals and plants from in and near the water featured in the book include clownfish, whale sharks, sea otters, dolphins, turtles and more.



My daughter loves to draw so when I saw I was able to request to review this new drawing book I quickly jumped on the chance.  We love to express ourselves through art while learning.  We are currently learning about ocean life this past week so this is the perfect book for some drawing fun. 

Draw 50 - Sea Creatures is a wonderful addition for anyone who loves to draw.  There is not very much direction like you see in other drawing books, but the steps are simple and easy to follow.  You draw a creature by drawing the lines that are seen in each step.  You can find simple drawing to more advanced drawings with textures in this drawing book from Draw 50. 

The drawings were grouped by type of creature they were, so the book didn't start from easy to hard but a mix in between.  I think the drawing is pretty simple and give you a great foundation so you are able to add your own style. My kids enjoyed exploring the book together finding different sea creatures to draw for their end of the week art project.  
Some people may find this book hard to follow since it lacks step-by-step directions like many other drawing books. My children and I didn't feel it was any harder to follow and loved each sea creature that was included.
