Dragons have been very popular in literature and Walt Disney has worked them into many animated films. In this collection of illustrations from the Disney Studio you'll see numerous variations of this fire breathing creature and also notice how the concept of the dragon has evolved over the decades.

From storyboards and sketchbooks to production cells you'll see simple concepts transformed into polished, finished illustrations. Elliot from Pete's Dragon, Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty), Mushu (Mulan) and other Disney dragons are the stars of this collection.

The art assembled here is breathtaking, but there is really no text to explain what the individual is seeing and, for some folks, that may be a negative. But if you just wish to focus on the art and study the techniques involved, that won't be a major problem.

This book will appeal to all ages - young readers, older youth and adults. If you can't get enough dragons and would like to study the studio renderings of some exceptionally talented people, this is the resource you want to have at your fingertips.
