    Dragons Etc!

    Hey,

    Its Rhys again.

    Okay, as a child (far back from kindergraten and year 1) i've loved drawing dragons.. but they all look weird..

    is there any anatomies for dragons (AND other fantasy creatures - and maybe humans)??

    Good ones (like E-books).

    Rhys.

    Thread already posted in another section.

    It'll be unlikely that theres any specific e-book on drawing dragons, Elwell said it best for what you should look into though.

    Purée well in the blender of your imagination.
    Voilà.

    The only thing I can think of like that are the kinds of books with titles like How-To-Draw! #7: Fantasy Creatures. Though I only mention them to warn you off them. Most I've seen combine the same old step-by-step thing with artists who can barely draw people and think fantasy = messy or cartoony.
    For fantasy creatures you'd probably be better off looking at the good art out there, thinking of their traditional descriptions and practising drawing real-life analogues (of bits and pieces, anyway). In short, look at the topic Luftwaffles linked.

    Also, this topic made me do a google search and visit this site. I can't believe it was the first result. It's worse than the kind of book I mean but not by too much. But now I've seen it and I can't unsee it. Thanks a lot, Rhys. Thanks a lot...
