Get Rolling on Your Most Inventive Artwork Ever

What lurks in the shadows of your imagination? This book takes you deep into the dusty corners and dark recesses where your most original ideas lie in wait, showing you how to lure them out into daylight, and shape them into fantastic yet believable concept art.

Experimentation is the cornerstone of Fantasy Genesis. A series of dice rolls and corresponding word lists present you with an infinite variety of jumping-off points and visual problems to solve. The challenge (and the fun) is to meld seemingly unrelated and everyday elements such as a caterpillar, seashells, fire or a hammer into exceptionally curious, grotesque, oddly beautiful and totally unexpected creations.

40+ step-by-step mini-demonstrations illustrate basic techniques for drawing a wide range of fantasy elements and forms

3 game variations (complete with game sheets) lead you to create fiercely imaginative objects, creatures and humanoids

3 full-length demonstrations show how to play the game from your first rolls of the die to finished concept drawings

Use this art-game as a warm-up, a bulldozer for creative-block or a daily sketching exercise to generate a stockpile of inspired beasties, heroes, costumes, weapons and other never-before-dreamt creations. It all starts with a roll, a word and your imagination.

This is just what I needed! From flipping through the book at the bookstore to exploring some new shops to find dice, this has been the best thing I have done for myself in a long time. The sketches are shown step-by-step, the creativity that this game has inspired is intense, and I have discovered that I CAN draw! This is a great buy, both as a book and as a game. Prior to buying this book, I had all but given up on my ability to draw what was in my head, so I stuck with landscapes and figure drawing, always with a photo reference. When you plug into this book, look out! You might just draw things you had never imagined...literally!
