Nelson explores and demonstrates his methods for fashioning visually stunning, believable environments for fantasy creatures and characters. Scores of images and step-by-step examples illustrate how variation and experimentation lead to fresh, original designs for otherworldly beings, their environments, and their stories. Learn More

  10. MAGIC RITE OF DRAWING Art & Techinque Signed

    This is the second self-published, Kickstarter art book of Buchanan's and it's once again a joy to see.

Though he has pulled in influences from everywhere, he is no copyist. THB hands forward the authenticities garnered during his studies [of past illustation masters], giving them to the world via his art..." Bonus: Comes with a beautiful 11x 8-1/2 full-color print, "The Frost Giant's Daughter," which he has also signed. He's done these exclusively for Bud Plant customers. Learn More
