What did I think of it:
While this is my first Christopher Hart book , I do have to say that the book has various steps to drawing your own fairy designs, and while I can't draw that all some times is fun just to try , how each chapter is broken down to show different things like : first chapter deals with different head positions and details, and then the second chapter moves on to drawing full fairy bodies. Once you learn how to draw bodies, there is a chapter on creating clothing and accessories for your fairy Of course, all fairies need wings, so there’s a chapter devoted especially to drawing wings and different flying poses. There’s a short chapter on creating different personalities, a chapter devoted to magical elements in drawing and a chapter on musical instruments. The final chapter is devoted to creating different types of fairy houses., but while I did like that , I did find it to be a little bit difficult at lest for someone like me, but still it would be a great gift to anyone who loves to draw. With that said I received this book from Blogging For Books in exchange for my honest opinion and review and that these are 100 % my own thoughts
