Ready-to-Draw Templates and Step-by-Step Rendering Techniques
Linda Ravenscroft - All books by this author

Book illustrators, computer games artists, and others who want to develop their skill as specialists in fairy art will find this book a practical instruction guide and an imaginative source of inspiration.

Following an opening chapter that specifies tools and materials, this book instructs in—
  • Rendering fairy subjects from sketches and/or photo of humans to finished illustrations
  • Understanding human anatomy as the basis of fairy anatomy
  • Drawing convincing fairy costumes
  • Understanding and illustrating the many different kinds of fairies, including Sylphs, Dryads, Flower Fairies, Nymphs, Corn Spirits, Goblins, Pixies, Mermaids, Brownies, Hobgoblins, and many others
Both beginners and experienced artists will find plenty of inspiration in these pages, whether they are working in traditional media or on computers. The book’s spiral binding ensures that its pages lie flat while students follow instructions. Includes more than 350 how-to illustrations in color.
