Overview


This self-teaching course instructs beginning and intermediate artists in methods for creating fantasy characters of all kinds, from the classic fairy princess, to witches, wizards, monsters, and aliens from outer space. As important as the fantasy characters themselves are the worlds where they live, whether on space stations, in enchanted forests, dream castles, or on alien planets. This book opens with advice on tools, materials, and media, and then presents practical lessons in basic draftsmanship. Detailed instruction covers lighting and shadows, creating surface textures, capturing the illusion of movement, exaggerating human features to produce fantasy characters, placing characters in lifelike poses, and telling stories with pictures. The text is complemented with more than 150 instructive color illustrations.
