Draw 62 Magical Creatures and Make Them Cute

Draw 62 Magical Creatures and Make Them Cute is a step by step drawing tutorial guide for fantasy creatures by Heegyum Kim.

Due out 25th June 2019 by Quarto on their Quarry imprint, it's 128 pages and will be available in paperback format.

This appealing book is full of simple tutorials for drawing magical creatures such as dragons, harpies, sirens, sphinxes, trolls, and some Asian inspired creatures such as dokkaebi, tengu, and kumiho. 
The tutorials and techniques are suited to beginning artists. There are step by step tutorials for 62 creatures with different variations and poses for each one. There is a 'you try it' balloon on each page for reader drawings.

This would make a great gift for would-be artists of all ages. The included tutorials are varied and eclectic with origins from many different mythologies. There is no introductory technique or materials instruction; the book just includes the 62 tutorials. There is a complete table of contents, so locating individual ones shouldn't be problematic. They're slanted toward line drawings, though colored pens, crayons, and watercolors could certainly be used to enhance the drawings.

Cute book, accessible for everyone.

Five stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
