    1. After reading the Dracopedia, I couldn't help but be completely in love with the art style, I hope to be this good someday, for now I'll just admire this!This book contains the Alphyn, Buraq, Chimera, Dragon Turtle, Enfield, Freybug, Griffin, Hippogriff, Imp, Jorogumo, Kraken, Leviathan, Manticore, Naga, Owlursus, Pegasus, Questing Beast, Roc, Shedu, Tarasque, Unicorn, Vampire, Waterhorse, Xenobeast, Yeti, and Zurator.I love William O'Connor's style over all and I love the way he imagines things [...]


    2. Fantastic guide to uncommon and common mythical beasts, though not as helpful for learning to illustrate them. A must read reference for writers, artists, and fans of myth and fantasy.


    3. FascinatingThis is a fantastic work of art and history. Taking mythological creatures and the historical stories behind them, and then combining those factors along with knowledge of known species creates a fantastically detailed reference for artists interested in these mythological beasts. I highly recommend!


    4. I picked this up thinking I'd learn how to draw, but it became quickly obvious that this is for advanced artists. It was still an interesting little read.


    5. A great book, but my one problem is that most of the creatures tend to have a similarity about them. It may just be the artist's style.


    6. Very helpful, but more about painting than drawing. And right now I'm mostly interested in drawing. I'll be glad to come back to it if and when I begin digital painting.
