Everyone loves fantasy, whether they re young or old, male or female, geeky or chic-y. We all thrill to the bold heroes, the powerful heroines, and the evil villains. Now top-selling author and artist Christopher Hart reveals exactly how to draw every major fantasy genre: horror, Gothic, magic, medieval, primitive, undersea, and fairy. Here are wizards, beasts, soldiers and slaves, kings and queens, princes and princesses, knights, giants, nymphs and fairies, elves, griffins and unicorns, werewolves, dragons, and many more denizens of the many worlds of fantasy. And to make those fabulous creatures come to life, Hart uses his signature step-by-step style to explain exactly how to create deep shadows, high contrast, chains, spikes, sallow faces and bony fingers, cliffs, castles of light and castles of darkness, undersea cities, and other fantastic places and effects. It's a fantasy lover's fantasy, all between the covers of one fantastic book: Astonishing Fantasy Worlds.
