Dragons have figured in the visual arts from time immemorial, but today they are more popular than ever as subjects for computer games and science fiction books, posters, and films. A noted fantasy artist shows students how to create a wide variety of dragons from conception to finished illustration. He instructs in ways to start with the anatomy of actual living species such as reptiles, horses, birds, and bats in the creation of convincing and aesthetically pleasing dragon art. Students learn how to draw and paint a complete anatomical skeleton, apply muscle groups and scaly textures, create dynamic poses, and generally master the skills that bring dragons to life in brilliant finished artwork. Many different legendary dragon species are shown, and templates are provided for tracing and computer scanning. Magnificent color illustrations on most pages.
