Fantasy Artist's Figure Drawing Bible : Ready-to-draw Characters and Step-by-step Rendering Techniques Hardback
by Matt Dixon
Drawing fantasy, manga and comic book characters is very popular at the moment.
These areas appeal to a wide range of budding artists from schoolboys wanting to make their own graphic novels to those wanting to develop fantasy games on their computers.
This book is a good, sound text on how to develop characters - a bit of personality but mostly how to work up preliminary sketches to the final finished character.
There are sample pages from various artists' sketchbooks and lots of drawings in different poses to show how to convey different features, postures and movement.
There are also outline figures that can be traced and then coloured in or developed further.
All in all, this is a useful sourcebook for anyone interested in drawing fantasy figures.
It is in the handy wirobound format.
