Not only is he one of the nicest guys in this business, Matt Dixon is just damned talented. Those 2 reasons are enough to pick up “The Fantasy Artist’s Figure Drawing Bible” by Matt Dixon, but if you need more convincing, here’s a quick rundown of the book.
It’s 256 pages on fantasy character design, from the basics of drawing the figure through costume and prop design, characterisation and rendering. Containing 30 example characters which are included, each showing progression from first doodle to finished artwork.

Matt’s characters are brilliant, and his artwork always shows through a great sense of humour, so what are you waiting for? Click on the link in our carousel in the sidebar and buy it now!

Out now in the UK through A&C Black. Published later this month in the USA through Barron’s Educational.

Have fun,
David
