Yesterday I was drawing some stuff, and one of the things I drew was a really cute and cool fantasy creature. So today, I am going to be uploading this awesome lesson and call it “how to draw a fantasy creature", step by step. Sometimes I will draw something just by being random, and the outcome of the drawing turns out to be a creation I really like. I do believe that some of you were with me as I was doodling and sketching out this creature live. I have no idea what to name it, but if you ask me it looks like an alien animal that could be in a movie like AVATAR or even Star Wars. There are so many things you can create if you open your mind and just keep going at what you love to do. I love drawing, and because of that I love creating new things whether it is animals, objects, creatures, or beings. A good example on what I mean is those skull drawings I made a day ago. When I first started this site, all I did was draw fantasy beings. Nowadays I draw a variety of things leaving behind my true love which is fantasy. If you look at some of my old concept art you will get a good idea on what I mean. Sketches like the mercenary dragon, and the beast creature are some of the concepts I’m talking about now. Anyways, I’m going to shut up now because I’m starting to ramble on about stuff that doesn’t need to be talked about unless I’m writing a book. Enjoy this tutorial on how to draw a fantasy creature, step by step and let me know what you think of it. In the meantime, just wait for my return as I have a lot more lessons coming your way.
