Drawing Dragons Learn How to Create Fantastic Fire-breathing Dragons by Sandra Staple

This book taps into the dragon craze ignited by the successful Eragon series and includes all types of dragons, from scaly brutes of medieval Europe to graceful Asian fantasy figures. Clear, illustrated and step-by-step enough that a child can follow it, but detailed, imaginative and insightful enough that an adult can learn from it as well, this book offers anyone and everyone a simple way to learn how to draw dragons.T-Rex may be king of the dinosaurs and the lion may be king of the jungle, but the undisputed, hands-down ruler of mythical creatures is the dragon. Now, anyone with an interest in drawing these amazing creatures can follow the program in this book and learn to do it. Avoiding the 'copy-it-yourself' approach found in other books, Sandra Staple teaches readers all the skills they need to create their own dragon menagerie. Every step is presented with ease and clarity, taking the bewilderment out of the drawing process and showing that great complexity begins with utmost simplicity. For beginners, there's a special primer section, while more experienced artists can dive right in to drawing the mythical creatures that fill their imaginations.
