Product Overview

Come. Enter the world of fantasy. Bring your paper, your pencils, and your field guide to identifying the denizens of this mysterious world. What? You don''t have a field guide? Don''t be silly. Of course you do! You have Fantastical Creatures Field Guide. Author and artist Aaron Lopresti leads you on the daring hunt for the Utah salt beast...the dragosaur...and, of course, the mad men of Borneo. Each one shows how an artist can take a natural form--mud, twisted vines, animal shapes--and turn them into fabulous monsters. Pencil sketches drawn in the field, plus full-body watercolor paintings of the beasts, cast a spell that draws the reader into this strange new land. Step-by-step instructions, explaining exactly how to "capture" fantastic creatures with a pencil, reveal Lopresti''s creative process and inspire readers to explore new realms for themselves.
