Overview

How to Draw a Dragon: "Cautiously approach the dragon, offer it a piece of candy or a little sister, and draw while it happily munches away."

From the artist behind the wildly popular NeonDragonArt.com, DragonArt will help you create mythical beasts that awe, delight, and disturb the sweet dreams of little ones. Armed only with your trusty pencil and ink pen, you will begin your artistic quest by conquering a super-easy dragon that even the densest of wyvern could draw. With pace quickened by this cool achievement, you shall forge bravely onward to discover simple secrets and spiffy tricks for making your creature friendly or fierce, sorrowful or cynical—drawing them from all different perspectives, in flight or at rest (so vain, those dragons—they love to strike a pose!) and incorporating various styles of heads, limbs, wings, horns, frills, scales, tails and other details to make your particular beast original, believable and so darn groovy.

Because dragons enjoy having others around to terrorize, disembowel and occasionally hang out with, this book will also teach you how you to populate your alternate universe with a whole cast of fantastic creatures, including mythical griffins, guardian gargoyles and deadly basilisks.

All this within the curiously compelling, beautifully beastly, and brightly colored pages you hold in your hands, which by now are no doubt trembling with keen anticipation. So quit dragon your feet! (Ugh, wyrms hate puns!) Buy this book now and make your wildest, wickedest, fire-breathingest fantasies come true!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-This book has great writing and superb illustrations and manages to do everything right-from the front cover to the index. The author is clearly knowledgeable about her topic and her enthusiasm is contagious. Her dragons are wonderfully diverse and, while none of them looks particularly easy to draw, the sheer breadth of Peffer's imagination will encourage readers to try and create some of their own. The writing hits the perfect note between didactic and mischievous and will especially appeal to the sensibilities of teen artists. There is nothing else out there right now with the wit and style of DragonArt; it is sure to become a classic in fantasy-art instruction.-Steev Baker, Kewaskum Public Library, WI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Awsome for learning the details of how to draw a dragon

    Any 'How to Draw a Dragon' book I've ever found has always been cartoony and rubbish. This is the first and only book I've found that has a remotely realistic approach. Mostly I bought it for fun but for those who want to start maybe a more serious approach to drawing realistic dragons this is a good book to start out on.

    An Excellent Resource for Any Dragon-lover

    I am a recreational artist and full-time dragon lover. Peffer offers some good tips on drawing and creating interesting dragon characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this book because of the author's fresh illustrating style and sense of humor. I would recommend this book to any dragon-lover.

    THE BEST fantasy drawing book!!

    I think Jessica's drawings are amazing and her books are easy to follow and extremely clear. ANYONE who loves to draw has to buy this book. It's worth every cent and I can't wait until her next book is out!!

    Great website, great book, great art

    I saw her at her website, but I never knew she published a book... Well I guess I just found out. Her dargons are amazing, and being as skilled as her, you have to see this book for yourself. The poses and styles she does are just awesome.
