Dragonart Fantasy Characters: How to Draw Fantastic Beings and Incredible Creatures by Jessica Peffer

Give life to the beings that roam your imagination!

Dragons may terrorize fantasy worlds, but they need peasants to munch on... heroes to confront... elegant elves, shrewd sorcerers and dreaded demons to battle. Following on the wings of the ferociously popular DragonArt, this book shows you how to conjure up your own fantasy realms by drawing inspiration from fairy tales, legends and (if you dare) things that go bump in the night.

Breathe the life into your beings by basing them upon fundamental human anatomy--proportions, facial expressions and gender-specific characteristics.
Color-coded, step-by-step demonstrations (simple enough that even the dullest of dwarves could follow along!) show you how to create a sordid cast of creatures, including goblins, orcs, sprites, angels, mermaids, centaurs, vampires, werewolves, banshees and more.
Accessorize each being by tailoring them with tusks, wings, hooves, daggers, armor and various apparel, from the fine garb of nobles to peasant rags.
Copy each being as-is. Or, better yet, follow your own twisted imaginings to conjure up creatures from fantastic lands.
