My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Published November 1st 2016 by Watson-Guptill

For years, Christopher Hart has given readers the tools and techniques needed to learn how to draw and cartoon. With the Doodletopia series, Hart offers us a chance to practice and perfect our artistic skills. For this latest title, Hart returns to the lush, gorgeous, and mystical subject of fairies. Doodletopia: Fairies provides aspiring fantasy artists and fairy fans with activities to stimulate their creativity. After covering the basics of rendering these characters, Hart sets us loose to interact with the book's many exercises and challenges. Pairing the informative content for which Hart is beloved with myriad opportunities for creative expression, Doodletopia: Fairies offers aspiring artists the next level of interactive art instruction. 

These fairies are a bit on the elfish side. But they're very cute elves. And they're still really fun to draw.

It's so great that this book takes you from the very beginning of the drawing process to the end with a variety of styles.
It's not just the one figure but every detail about the fairy from head to pointy shoes. Or really whatever kind of shoes you want to give it. Along with personality, attitude and home because there are so many options that you can probably make an entire fairy kingdom and call it Fairytopia.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
