Ever wonder how people come up with tons of great ideas? Do they just have some sixth sense when it comes to illustrating fantastical beasts? Nah! They just know you need to study from nature more. Animals, insects, plants, sea life, even microscopic life forms will give you all you need to create that next mythological monster.

So in this next series of lessons we delve into that concept. I will show you how to create studies from the spine of various animals to have a foundation for your creature design. We will talk about the importance of quick thumbnails to explore a multitude of ideas. Then we will cover Predators versus Prey and what some of the noticeable differences are. Then we will put it all in action with a creature concept or two.

This will all be in a drawing style and not software specific so that digital and traditional artists can follow along. Working on the lessons now so check back for updates if you are interested.

Learn to Draw Action Heroes – Available for Pre-Order

Learn to Draw Actions Heroes – Step by Step

Super excited to share that my new book, “Learn to Draw Action Heroes” is now available for Pre-Order on Amazon! I just received my advanced copies and the quality and page layouts are sweet. Impact Books does a tremendous job putting all this content together. The art isn’t half bad either. 😉

The actual book will be available on September 13th 2017. It is 144 page step by step guide to drawing superheroes. I tried my very best to make this extremely comprehensive and easy to follow along with. This should be a great beginner to intermediate guide for comic book artists.

I go through various parts of the body and show lots of break downs. I have always learned the most from these types of studies so I felt it made the most sense to teach others in this manner.

Here is a sample page to check out the look –
