From the traditional fairy,goblin and dragon to the fantastic dreamylooks into an artist's mind, there is a style thatappeals to just about everyone. And whilethere are some loose rules about how somecharacters are supposed to look, for the mostpart anything goes. This gives the artist a greatdeal of freedom when creating, and createthey do!For this issue we have rounded up some fasci-nating looks into how a number of artists goabout creating their fantasies.
