Question Are there any art tutorial books of creatures?

Im into drawing weird pictures like aliens and creatures from greek mythology and I want to know are there any gnomon workshop books that give tutorials on how to draw these pictures? I did buy the book Monstruo by Carlos Haunte which has excellent drawings of different monsters. Are there any books that can teach me how to draw pictures that are in that book?

Hi there,

afaik the Design Studio Press publications are meant as showcases of the artists portfolio, I'm afraid they don't have how-tos in their line-up.

I would suggest to grab some DVDs by the likes of Neville Page, Ian McCaig or J.P. Targete, just to name a few...great examples of imaginative illustration there.

Or something to consider is picking up a book with references of animals in it since a lot of those Greek mythology creatures are usually based off of some animal.
