DragonArt Evolution (by J. ‘NeonDragon’ Peffer) is a new how-to-draw book in the DragonArt series. This particular book focuses on the ins and outs of how to draw all things dragon.
First and foremost I will share with you all that I love dragons, which is what got me so excited to receive this book. Well, that and the fact that I can’t draw dragons…or I used to not be able to, until I got this DragonArt book.
It covers virtually everything you could possibly need to know to be able to draw your own dragons. You’ll learn how to draw jaws, horns, ears, wings, scales, and limbs. Not only that, but like any good how-to-draw book, it has guides to drawing full dragons.
While I’m biased on how dragons should look (four legs, wings, spikes, sharp teeth, scales, and claws), the book isn’t. You’ll learn how to draw Western (or medieval), Eastern (or Chinese), Sea, Fairy, and Undead dragons along with a bunch of others. This book has everything. I mean it.
However, the step-by-step guide can often become cluttered and hard to follow. In order to save space, I assume, they often lump a lot of the steps together without illustrating them all out one by one. I suppose, there’s not much that can be done about that though.
I do give props to ‘NeonDragon’ for including a tutorial for coloring pictures in Photoshop. That’s something I haven’t seen before and could be extremely helpful to those who don’t have a clue what they’re doing.
I highly suggest this to anybody who wants to learn how to draw dragons. I’ve already done a few sketches and know I’ll be having a blast drawing dragon characters.
DragonArt Evolution: How to Draw Everything Dragon is available at Amazon.com for $15.63.
