    An interesting book that combines design process with cryptozoology It s written in the fashion of a field artist studying fantasy creatures, which is strange yet works well in this book The designs themselves are fantastic and you even get to see alternative designs as well as subspecies I would recommend this book to anyone interested in drawing or cryptozoology or both.
