Book Review: Ralph Masiello’s Dragon Drawing Book

Rating: ★★★★☆

This addition to Masiello’s drawing series is more advanced than his Ocean Drawing Book and is probably better suited to the 8-12 age range.  Along with his detailed step-by-step drawing instructions for eleven kinds of dragons, he provides some historical and mythological information about each dragon, including by a nice map showing the geographic locations where stories about them originated.  He also supplies a bibliography for further reading.

This ambitious book instructs the reader in drawing dragons using several styles of artwork, including a realistic style (as much realism, anyway, as can be expected from a mythological creatures) as well as Mayan, Thai, and Chinese styles of representation.  For budding artists or dragon aficiandos, this is an excellent book for fanning the flame.
