FANTASY ART - LEARN TO DRAWMIKE JEFFERIES Book Number: 88770 Product format: Paperback
For all lovers of Dungeons and Dragons, Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, the drama and atmosphere that can be conveyed through fantasy art is otherworldly. Learn to draw like a professional with this easy-to-follow guide to mastering the basic drawing techniques and developing a style of your own. Beasts and wizards, magic trees and castles, sword carrying warriors, fantastical dragons, a wizard in charcoal, the fantasy people are begun with animated skeletons rotated into the desired position and decorated with a chainmail shirt using 2B and 4B pencils for heavier shading. The artist's tip is to sketch the position of the spine, the head and the angles of the arms and legs before putting flesh to the skeleton. There are figures in action, costumes and props, fantasy beasts like the armour-plated rhinoceros and basic tortoise evoked as a primeval beast, fantasy birds, then a study of noses and mouths and the correct use of light and shade. Angels and demons, castles and citadels, chariots and galleons, create an air of expectancy or a scene of peace in your fantasies on paper. With technical tips and techniques, rated two out of a series of five for difficulty level. 64 page large softback. 8" x 11".
