Dreamscapes and Dragon Remains

This book has been a favorite of mine for a very long time.  It is nice to be able to include it in my recommended books about art.  Although I had reviewed the information in the book, I had not done a step-by-step, review of one of the art exercises, until now.  In this video review, I take on the challenge of the demonstration: Remains of Ancients, a dragon bone ship seemingly traversing the yard through the trees.  Awesome.  Pui-Mun Law's imagination is as exciting as her fantasy art textures.  The thing about her book, too, is that she doesn't assume the artist-reader can keep up with her, so her break-down of steps is very logical and easily attainable - except for the drawings.  I think it is a skill best already possessed before working through this book.  So what then will this book teach you?  Creating the textures, dynamic and fantastical in her artwork; adding imaginative fantasy details, and how far to take both in a fantasy work of art.

Watch a video review of the step-by-step art exercise: Remains of Ancients, from Dreamscapes Fantasy Worlds, here!
