Fantasy Art School
This is the Totally Free Fantasy Art School where you will learn how to draw in the genre of Fantasy. As you go through the lessons you will learn the basics of drawing and the techniques, tools, and methods that are used while you learn how to draw all kinds of fantasy things from goblins to dragons, unicorns, weapons, armor, knights and all sorts of Medieval and Fantasy things. You probably can't get a goblin to pose for you like our artist here has done but you do have the fantasy art school to show you the way and that's almost as good. Besides, you won't have to worry about feeding an angry dragon model !
