I've always liked to draw, and fantasy pictures have long been my favorites. The problem was, I could never draw a dragon. I didn't even know where to start with getting the body rightly proportioned, or making the head look right. So I was kind of excited to get this book for review. I'll be honest, I haven't actually tried drawing any of these dragons yet. I haven't actually picked up a drawing pad and pencil for years, if you want to know the truth.

I do really like the pictures, though. The i

I bought this book and "Drawing Dragons" by Sandra Staple at the same time, so I'll mention comparisons between the two here. First off, this book is excellent overall. They give you a ton of ideas for different types of dragon heads, and from different positions. Want ears, horns, wings, various types of scales, choices of limbs or horns/fins? It's all in here. I will say that Sandra Staples book does give more options for how to add details to your dragon. Lots of different tails, horn/fin opt ...more
Although this isn't my typical kind of review book I accepted it in a hurry because it just sounded awesome! Well, I'm so glad I did! The pictures of the many many dragons are beautiful! Talk about some inspiring stuff!
I am a horrible artist. I liked art class because I like to do art, I'm just bad at it. This book has step by step instructions for each part of the anatomy of the dragons. You can go through and pick from hundreds (at least close to hundreds!) and pick which one you want to draw
Intermediate - Independent

Rationale: Jack indicated on his sheet he was interested in art, drawing, comics, dragons, and monsters, so I located a book - though not necessarily in the children's section, that is easy enough to follow and is sure to spark his imagination.

Hook: Interested in creating your own dragons and other creatures? Check out this art book that helps you create your own dragons and gives you great types on how to become a better artist.

This is such a great art book. The details are great. The different pictures of the Dragons are beautiful. The detailed instruction takes you from the first line you draw all the way to a full dragon, while giving you small descriptions to help you get inspired. This book is perfect for beginners but just as great for more advance artist.

I had my 8 year old son try out the book, and lets just say everyday he goes to his room and tries drawing a new dragon. I asked him what he thought of the book
I'm not a very good artist but I do find drawing to be very relaxing. When I picked up this book, I wasn't quite sure it would be able to help me. I had never tried to draw something as in-depth as a dragon, but I wanted to give it a try. I was surprised at how easy it was. I drew some really incredible pictures and it was all fairly simple. The instructions are geared toward beginners, so this is the perfect book for those of you who are unsure of your drawing abilities.
I love drawing and when I first saw this book I thought to myself, " I HAVE TO GET IT!" The illustrations are well detailed but at the same time simple! I drew quite a few drawings and all look great. It is really easy for beginners and my nephews love looking at the pictures. I'm really glad i got the book.
