"Creature design has never looked as simultaneously simple and fantastically complicated. By laying out literally every bone of her creatures, Whitlatch makes creation seem effortless―just follow nature, connect the bones, add the muscles, and color the skin. These books do assume a familiarity with drawing, but even first-timers will gain something from the series. Even if it’s simply inspiration.”―Kyle Hill, Nerdist
