5 books for magic creatures lovers

First blog post! (Not counting the letters)

I'm in the process of editing and compiling my first independent illustration course: "Creating Magical Universes: Stylized Digital Design" (for now, only in Portuguese with Portuguese subtitles). There, there will be a lot of cool and super complete content! But for free content and also to promote the course, I decided to share tips and mini tutorials on the @papoulinhas profile, and some things that I find relevant, will be compiled here on the blog as well.

Today I came to recommend 5 books for those who like magical beings! All are artbooks, but have text as well.

I left the Amazon affiliate link for anyone who wants to see the books. By clicking on the link, you help me because a percentage of the sale goes to me, yay!

Most international books I buy in pre-sale and the price is much more affordable.

Another option is to wait for some promotion from Amazon. There are usually a few times a year, that buy 3 pay 2 promotion, it's really worth it, so keep an eye out!
