My Review: This book was ok. I found a lot of it way above my capabilities at 14. But there were some very cute animals that I liked doing for my little sister.  I so think that this would well with both ink and paint. As well I found that ink smears A LOT and paint not so much.  You could basicly use this book for the animals and ideas then do your own thing.  

Do I Recommend this book? I think this one would work great for not new new artist but those who love to draw etc. and have some idea with what things are. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Great for those who love to draw in pen, ink, and more!
