9781438003467: How to Draw and Paint Fantasy Combat: A Step-by-Step Guide to Epic Combat Scenes

One of the hallmarks of fantasy art is incredible combat scenes. Epic battles beneath thundery skies, hand-to-hand combat between good and evil, the lone warrior facing a monstrous foe...this is what fantasy is all about! For artists, the amount of detail and movement needed to make these scenes convincing can be a challenge. In How to Draw and Paint Fantasy Combat, award-winning fantasy artist Matt Stawicki demystifies the techniques needed to create truly realistic scenes. Inside he covers:

  • Essential tools: paper, drawing and painting tools, computer software, and more
  • Drawing techniques including tones and shading, anatomy, and unique details
  • Painting techniques that really draw the viewer’s eye and make the artwork pop
  • Tips on creating the perfect fantasy environment for the action

    Unique to this manual is Stawicki’s invaluable “directories” of classic combat art elements, from attacking and defensive poses to weapons and clothing. A helpful “Artists at Work” section looks over the shoulder of five leading fantasy artists as they create compelling combat scenes. More than 250 full-color illustrations provide instruction and inspiration.
