Only book of its kind to use a fantasy creativity game (of the author's design) to come up with entirely unique creatures and characters while learning, step-by-step, how to draw their components. Conjure creatures and characters from your imagination! To generate fantasy characters and inhabitants that populate an imaginary world, sometimes you need a little creative fuel...and a 20-sided die. Fantasy Genesis Characters is a choose-your-own-adventure game where a roll of the dice decides what type of creature you create. Each chapter expands on mimicking the observable world to engineer original populations by mashing up unrelated quirks and concepts - think "vegetarian zombie," "Byzantine goth" or "gangster sheep." Roll the dice to combine traits from word lists. Mix random emotions, behaviours, costumes, cultures and anthropomorphic attributes to create infinite and unexpected characters. Short lessons supply the building blocks to develop character components - expressions, gestures, posture, etc. - while mini demos, creative challenges and RPG-like activities help you bring them to life. * 30+ challenges and demonstrations illustrate how to conceptualise and create fully developed fantasy characters * Use free-association word games to jump-start your brain into forming original ideas, crazy-cool mash-ups and visual solutions * Includes a crash course in anatomy, plus tips for drawing from life and reference photos * Learn to sketch facial expressions and modify classic archetypes AUTHOR: Chuck Lukacs is currently an art instructor at Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon. He has been illustrating for the science fiction and fantasy gaming markets for over 18 years. Lukacs's paintings and prints have won awards and appeared in conventions, galleries and museums internationally. 250 colour photos; 50 B/W images… (mere)

My attraction to this book started with the cover, it's an art related book, so I want eye candy. Luckily it didn't stop with the cover, the content is beautifully presented and there are a lot of images. From the 144 pages this book has, about only 5 don't have illustrations (and I'm counting the index and title page as two of them).

This book is meant to teach you how to create original characters (humans and creatures) by paying attention to emotions and their different facial expressions, behaviors, archetypes, age, costume design and cultural background. Every page is filled with drawing lessons so that you can conveying attitudes, emotions and overall make your characters more interesting and accurate to what you want to transmit. It also has mini lessons on drawing basics: human anatomy, folds and fabric, drawing from life and reference, silhouetting and exercises to hone your skills.

A new use for your RPG dices

What makes this book special, is that it incorporates gaming!. There are boxes all over the book with themed, enumerated lists (for example, emotions, expressions, actions, occupations). Each one says the type and number of dices you will need for each given box and by combining different boxes you can create random characters that will challenge your creativity and make you explore new possibilities. For those of you who have enjoyed role play games and want to create original characters, you are going to love this approach. It can be a great way to have fun and create drawing challenges with other people and at the same time develop your skills.

*I requested an eArc from F W Media – Impact via NetGalley (Thank you!) and then bought my copy via Wordery. ( )
