Having a three year old it’s good to be able to draw a bit, drawing dragons being high on the agenda.
Over the past couple of weeks we’ve been particularly busy drawing treasure maps that are followed and played out around the living room and back garden. I’m not bad with a pencil, I’ve worked in a technical role at an art college for decades now and along with a bit of ability it’s sort of seeped in by osmosis. My treasure maps are spattered with mythical beasties as well as the obligatory swamps, mountains and caves, these aren’t too bad however my creature creations do leave a little to be desired.
By renditions of dragons for instance range from looking a bit dragon-like to looking a little like fierce gerbils. Not wishing to do a disservice to dragons – or gerbils, my plan is to find something that might enable me to make a good fist of drawing something that might not be mistaken for a rodent.
Anyway there’s plenty of books out there and here are a few samples. I think I know which one I’ll pick and once I have it and have digested it then I might I even add a section that might illustrate the illustration of dragons – when I have a moment that is.
Be careful to pick a book that might be appropriate for your little one’s use, that’s if the intention is to purchase it for them. However if you’re aiming to do it yourself then you should be able to pick anything from the items listed.
