Popularized by such beloved books as The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and the Harry Potter series—all of which have become blockbuster films—fantasy is an endlessly enduring genre. Acclaimed artist Chris Hart leads readers into this marvelous realm, where aspiring illustrators can go as far as their imaginations allow. With Hart’s guidance, they’ll learn how to create an entire cast of fascinating fantasy figures, from masters of sorcery who summon spirits and battle evil forces to dreaded creatures of darkness, such as ogres, cyclopes, trolls, and goblins. An entire coven of witches range from classic hags to spell-binding, spell-casting teens, and there are devilishly handsome warlocks, dragons, avenging angels, and more. Hart explains how to capture these characters’ strange forms, costumes, expressions, and action poses, as well as the magical effects that make them so extraordinary.
With hundreds of step-by-step drawings, expert art instruction, and visual hints, Drawing Wizards, Witches and Warlocks is a crash course that will educate and inspire fans of all levels.
