Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Does your dragon coil its tail around your shoulders when you sleep? Does it wait for you after school? Does it live in a riverbed like a Japanese ryu—or at the bottom of the ocean like Tiamat of Babylon? Is it small enough to snuggle into your pocket, or so big it blots out the sun from the sky? Does it hoard stolen treasure like Smaug? Speak the Language of Creation like Kalessin? Hold up the world like Ebberon? Did you find your dragon in a magic shop like Jeremy Thatcher, or hatch it from a stone like Eragon? Or do you summon it with the seven Dragonballs? No matter how your dragon looks, how big or small it is, or how it entered your imagination and your life, illustrator Sergio Guinot will show you How to Draw Your Dragon in this comprehensive guide to making your myths come to life!

Synopsis:

Massive fire-breathing dragons can be terrifying or kind, evil or accomplices of the hero, but they're never supporting characters, and all expert fantasy artists know how to depict them. Now, for the first time ever, a master dragon drawer reveals his secrets for doing this, taking you along for the ride as he meets these breathtaking creatures face-to-face.

Inside you'll find:

  • Easy to follow step-by-step instructions for creating realistic drawings of dragons.
  • Dozens of different types of dragons, along with their unique anatomical and personality traits.
  • An exploration of the digital and hand-drawing steps a dragon drawer must know.

Synopsis:

Drawing dragons requires an entirely different set of skills than any other form of figure drawing; part lizard, part bird, part pure ferocity, this book shows you how to break this mythical beast down to its most basic components (line, gesture, color, expression), so you’ll be drawing the most vicious critters in no time.

By beginning with the basic structure and gradually adding details to the form, this book provides easy step-by-step instructions (with helpful explanations and directions from the illustrators themselves) to some of the best illustration secrets fine artists and CGI designers rely upon.

With its fierce, fun, and simply stunning illustrations, How to Draw Your Dragon is the perfect mythical drawing manual for aspiring artists and dragon lovers of any age.
