How to Draw Fallen Angels: Discover the secrets to drawing, painting, and illustrating beings of the otherworld (Fantasy Underground) Reviews
Just...Oh MY GOD...
This will be a very biased review. I saw this book years ago at a craft store and it was much too expensive (for my taste anyway). I see it here and I just had to have it. The instructions are very clear and pictures are also very vivid. Love the artist's style and, though biased, I would recommend to anyone who finds the supernatural intriguing (and is interested in learning the process in creating the works of art depicted)
This book is aimed at the intermediate digital or traditional artist who already knows how to draw but who just needs some inspiration and a little guidance. It briefly covers the basic history, facts, and accessories for fallen angels before diving into how to portray them. Almost all of the art is in a dramatic realistic style that evokes an immediate emotional response from the viewer. None are over the top, even the one toonish work. These depictions have a dreadful realism to them. You could actually run into one of these characters on a particularly dark street one dry stormy night.
This book is everything I hoped it would be, when I purchased it. It has an ideal amount of step by step instructions that walk you through the artist technique, in a way that still leaves the person using this as a guide to experiment with their own character concepts. That combined with the giving a good amount of history and lore from a variety of cultural backgrounds, and how angels and fallen angels are depicted in these cultures. This aspect of the book alone is just a valuable for someone who is looking to find the right balance of inspiration to create their own fallen characters.
As an experienced artist myself:
