Dragons and Fantasy
Unleash your creative beast as you conjure up dragons, fairies, ogres, and other fantastic creatures.
Drawing fire-breathing beasts and mysterious, magical creatures has never been so much fun — or so easy! In just 64 pages, fantasy artist Kythera of Anevern demonstrates how to draw dragons, fairies, ogres, merfolk, and everything in between. Discover in-depth tips and techniques for drawing textures such as fur, hair, scales, and teeth, as well as features that include tails, wings, talons, hooves, and horns. With a wealth of fanciful drawings and detailed instruction on creating extraordinary creatures in graphite, this book is sure to fuel your fascination with the fantastic.
Having drawn since she could hold a crayon, Kythera of Anevern is a self-taught artist who revels in the strange and unusual. Dragons and other fantastic creatures are staples of her work, and her hobbies include role-playing, "macho knitting" or making chainmail, and dressing up as a pirate or Viking at local renaissance faires. She takes private commissions as her schedule allows, and contributes illustrations for various role-playing game books. She also displays her work at fantasy and animation conventions, including the annual Gathering of the Gargoyles, where she has won many awards. She received her BFA in Intermedia from Arizona State University and currently lives in Los Angeles with a host of dragon and gargoyle statues — and one very needy cat.
