This chilling introduction to drawing monsters completely demystifies the drawing process, showing how images can be built up easily, from initial geometric shapes right through to the finished creatures. Jim McCarthy includes a terrifying selection of monsters; choose from Fang Monster, Horned Monster, Red Monster, Eye Bug Monster and many more. Jim uses a helpful two-colour method that clearly shows every line and curve of the step-by-step pictures. Even absolute beginners will be able to create monster pictures following this simple step-by-step technique and there is plenty to inspire more experienced artists too.
