How to Draw Fantasy Drawings

Creating your very own fantasy drawings is a great place to start when it comes to learning how to draw.

And this is the place to do just that!

In this area of the site, tackle all sorts of different fantasy-related drawing lessons, straight out of popular books, movies, and other places.

So, when you think of 'fantasy drawings'...

What kinds of things come to mind?

Unicorns? Griffons? Elves? Orcs!

Sure, all of these creatures fit the bill.

In the world of fantasy, there's really no end to the many different types of weird and wonderful creatures that exists - and that you can draw!

I really think this section of the site will be lots of fun - and very beneficial for those who want to get 'extra creative' in their work.


Well, like with dragons and monsters, creatures of fantasy are just that -- fantasy! We don't know if they really existed. And so there's lots of room for guessing as to how they actually are supposed to look!

Fantasy Drawings

For example, fantasy creatures like griffons, centaurs, and minotaurs all combine two different things. So in a sense, it's like combining two different drawing lessons.

And the same goes for the pegasus on the right.

It's a horse... with wings!

And if you like, add a horn and becomes a unicorn with wings!

Again, loads of room for creativity.


As you're working through the drawing lessons in this section, see just how creative you can get.

Use the lessons as a guide and see if you can come up with your very own version of how it's supposed to look.

Enjoy the fantasy cartoons section!
