Fantasy is a magical medium, which can transport readers to a land and time that is only restricted by the imagination. Fantasy art has increased in popularity due to the recent overwhelming success of the Lord of the Rings films and the Dungeons and Dragons computer game.
Aimed at the beginner, this book goes back to basics and looks at the essential tools and materials required, as well as the vital techniques. Drawing processes are explained in detail, whether it’s constructing a fantasy sorceress or explaining how to set the background scene for a showdown between a wizard and a dragon. The book contains a series of tutorials on how to draw individual character elements, such as eyes, hair, hands and clothing. Subsequent step-by-step projects then show how to put all of the individual elements together to create an effective fantasy figure.
The book also shows the reader how to avoid the pitfalls and provides them with solutions for a simple and effective way to produce a convincing end result that will prove both exciting and rewarding. Ultimately, this inspiring and encouraging title shows how simple techniques can be built up and combined to create an accomplished finished piece.
