Take a step-by-step journey through the Art of Drawing Fantasy Characters to learn the best methods for drawing aliens, vampires, adventure heroes, and more. Part of Walter Foster’s Collector’s series, this title transports classic pencil drawing methods to another realm.
Enter the fantastic imagination of artist Jacob Glaser and learn how to draw everything from an alien lord and a werewolf to a jester and a black knight — fantasy characters that only existed in the far-reaching corners of your mind — until now.
After a quick introduction to the basic tools and techniques of pencil drawing, Glaser provides easy-to-follow, step-by-step drawing demonstrations, including a robot attack pod, Frankenstein, a vampire bat, an evil sorcerer, a barbarian warrior, and a damsel in distress.
Many projects include a digitally colored final image and color palettes so readers can see just one of the many ways they can bring fantasy characters to life in vivid color. Among these characters are slimy alien beasts, ghoulish demons, dark angels, wizards, and more.
Glaser provides a brief history of many of the characters, making this book a great resource for fantasy artists and aficionados alike. He also includes valuable tips on using computer software to digitally color images.
