Glaser, Jacob. The Art of Drawing Fantasy Characters: Discover Step-by-Step Techniques for Drawing Aliens, Vampires, Adventure Heroes, and More. Walter Foster, dist. by Quayside. 2010. 144p. illus. ISBN 978-1-60058-166-3. pap. $19.95. ART INSTRUCTIONThe popularity of the film Avatar has increased interest in fantasy, a perennially appealing genre. Using traditional drawing methods, Glaser, a freelance illustrator, showcases his process of drawing characters and props for science fiction, horror, and adventure stories. He encourages the study of human anatomy as a basis for drawing androids, alien beasts, zombies, and barbarian warriors. This is a good beginners' book, but it is not nearly as detailed as John Howe's Fantasy Art Workshop. — Library Journal, July 2010
