Curious Creatures is packed full of weird and wonderful throwbacks in the animal kingdom, including the Blue-Footed Booby, Nudibranchs, the Longhorn Cowfish, the Yeti Crab and many more! These all look as weird as their names sound and it's fabuklous to be educated in these not so popular animals whilst colouring. In fact, for the first time Millie has included a list of the creatures' names & their Latin titles in the rear of the book, so you can search them online and find out more, not to mention discover what they look like in real life to help make your pictures look realistic if you choose to go with a conservative colour palette. There's also a section of the Pavilion website in which Millie gives a fact or two about each creature.
Take a look at my video flip through of the entire book here:
Here is my finished picture of a Tibetan Sand Fox. I tried to use the markers in a way that looked textured, but I'm not too happy with how it turned out. Maybe I should've used pencils to give the fur a more realistic look.
