Fantasy art continues to be one of the most popular genres for people who take up art for the first time. This practical guide to drawing, which is suitable for both absolute beginners and more advanced students, shows how to turn the workings of your imagination into art. You'll learn to draw fantasy worlds, characters, and creatures, and you'll pick up essential drawing and sketching skills along the way.

LESSONS in basic sketching and drawing, exploration of both standard and digital materials and techniques, and exercises in translating ideas into images.

CLEAR STEP-BY-STEP instructions for all the essential techniques, including perspective, figure drawing, and composition.

ESSENTIAL TIPS on how to use the real world around you as the starting point for your fantasy creations.

Synopsis:

This self-teaching course instructs beginning and intermediate artists in methods for creating fantasy characters of all kinds, from the classic fairy princess, to witches, wizards, monsters, and aliens from outer space. As important as the fantasy characters themselves are the worlds where they live, whether on space stations, in enchanted forests, dream castles, or on alien planets. This book opens with advice on tools, materials, and media, and then presents practical lessons in basic draftsmanship. Detailed instruction covers lighting and shadows, creating surface textures, capturing the illusion of movement, exaggerating human features to produce fantasy characters, placing characters in lifelike poses, and telling stories with pictures. The text is complemented with more than 150 instructive color illustrations.
