Synopsis:

The interest in fantasy creatures and mythical beasts is continuing to grow, boosted by the success of "Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings" films and books in recent years. This book offers beginners all the guidance they will need to create their own fantasy worlds, inhabited by a vast range of weird and wonderful beings.Advice is given on the tools and materials necessary and the basic techniques are explained and demonstrated. A variety of different basic dragon forms is then explored, before moving on to tackle other species that can be included in the scenes, such as dinosaurs or birds. Specific tutorials deal with different body parts, expressions and poses, and the knowledge built up can then be applied to the other fantasy creatures tackled later in the book, including hippogryphs, basilisks and gargoyles.As with all the books in this series, the reader is also taught how to create landscapes and scenic backgrounds to suit the theme, as well as some advanced techniques for those who wish to progress further.

This exciting title therefore shows comprehensively how the techniques, composition and dramatic subject matter can be simply combined to create out-of-this-world scenes.
