Faeries are an ever popular subject for children and adults alike, and this book gives beginners all they need to know to portray these beautiful and mystical creatures.
The budding artist is given information on the specific materials and equipment required, as well as advice on experimenting with different media and techniques. There is also guidance on using photos and human models as the basis for faerie pictures.
The subsequent chapters look at drawing faeries in detail, from creating faerie faces, to adding expressions and poses, as well as developing different characters. Different kinds of faeries and their helpers are also explored in detail, for example evil faeries and flower faeries.
There is a separate chapter dedicated to wings and clothing, and as with all the books in this series there is also help in creating relevant backgrounds and scenery - in this case how to create the perfect magical faerie realm.
The perfect guide to anyone entering the world of drawing faeries.
