Creatures and Characters: Drawing Amazing Monsters, Aliens, and Other Weird Things! by Tim Young

"I received a free sample in exchange for writing a review on my blog"

The book, Creatures and Characters by Tim Young is a small but helpful guide for children. However, adults can also have fun learning to create some scary, unique, original and strange monsters inside. There are plenty of different faces, bodies, and designed creature characters that can be made by using this book. Every page has some wonderful tips and guides to get you sketching and drawing some cool looking monsters, aliens or even cartoon style characters.
I love most of all is that it's fun and easy, just need paper, drawing tool and this book. Therefore, I feel, Tim Young did a wonderful job with this book, I really enjoy the helpful tidbits on each page and the awesome monsters you can draw up. Some remind me of the ones in an old SNES(Super Nintendo Entertainment System), Zombies Ate My Neighbors. Since there are a few monsters that you can sketch, that sort of reminds me of this, but may also remind me of some alien movies or cartoon styles. No matter, each is very well designed and fun to create! 

Finally, I love to draw and this book just aids in drawing more than the traditional animal or floral designs I normally doodle and sketch. This is a great book on drawing creature  and monster characters. This is something that can be used over and over since it's got so many things you can draw and practice on drawing. So with all these wonderful creatures inside, this can be a perfect gift, with some colored pencils or pencils this can become a perfect gift!
