After reading the Dracopedia, I couldn't help but be completely in love with the art style, I hope to be this good someday, for now I'll just admire this!

This book contains the Alphyn, Buraq, Chimera, Dragon Turtle, Enfield, Freybug, Griffin, Hippogriff, Imp, Jorogumo, Kraken, Leviathan, Manticore, Naga, Owlursus, Pegasus, Questing Beast, Roc, Shedu, Tarasque, Unicorn, Vampire, Waterhorse, Xenobeast, Yeti, and Zurator.

I love William O'Connor's style over all and I love the way he imagines things
I picked this up thinking I'd learn how to draw, but it became quickly obvious that this is for advanced artists. It was still an interesting little read.
A great book, but my one problem is that most of the creatures tend to have a similarity about them. It may just be the artist's style.
