Usually, 'How to Draw and/or Paint' books go one of two ways - completely detailed and hard to learn from or 'cartoony' and over-stylized. Jessica 'NeonDragon' Peffer has acheived a wonderful balance of both. I particularly enjoyed her cover of both eastern and western dragons, and teaching of two different shading techniques. Writing the book from the perspective of a dragon itself, namely her wyvern companion, gave the book a comical flair while giving a good perspective on things. Wonderful to just read, and even better to learn from. As a personal artist an a person with an affinity for dragons, I applaud the authoress' work. I highly recommend it.
