I like to draw, but I bought a few books when I started and did some direct tracing for practice. I feel like planning out a carving is different from drawing, and having some reference to trace helped me figure out some of the ins and outs.

I'd say $50 may be a little pricey- maybe get one or two books to start and go from there?

Maybe western style isn't what you're into, but I can speak for the Al Stohlman books. How to carve leather has lots of patterns (flora AND fauna), great advice, tools used for each carving, and it's only $12 on amazon.

I love to tool, but wow is it hard. Pick up some of the Al Stohlman books on tooling. They are great.
