    Can't Draw? ... Wanna Bet? ... Wanna Try?

    I'm Gonna Attempt To Teach You To Draw Dragon's.
    Or At Least Show You How It's Done (My Way).
    The End Pic Will Be Called Simply 'Dragon', And While I'll Be Giving You Some
    Information On The Background Pic,
    We'll Mainly Be Concentrating On The 'Dragon' Itself.

    So ... What We Using?
    Well I'm Using :-

    For The Backdrop ..
    Bryce v4 (Though Any Version Will Do, Or Any Basic Landscape Generator,
    You Could Also Do It By Hand. I Didn't .. This Time,
    Maybe I'll Explain How To At A Later Date).
    ________________________________And ..
    For The Dragon ..
    Photoshop v5 (Again You Could Use ANY Graphic's Program,
    Though The Ability For Layer's And Transparency's;
    While Not Essential, Certainly WILL Help).
    Also .. I Won't Be Using Filter's That Are Not Common To Photoshop Or Most
    Other Graphic Programs.

    ___~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I'm Also Using A Pen/Tablet, It's A Genius Easy Pen. It's TINY, But Work's. It Was
    Designed More For Laptop Use/Replacemant I Think, And The Pen's Attached To The
    Tablet By A Cable. I've Only Recently Aquired It And This Was One Of The First Pic's
    I Really Used It On. I Like These Pen Thing's And Will Be Upgrading To A Wireless/IR
    Version As Soon As Finances Permit. Lucky You I Hear You Say,
    They Cost? Don't They?
    Well .. I Got This Of E-Bay For About 5 Pound's (Sterling) (8-10 US Dollar's?),
    Boxed With Driver's. New, Larger (8*5 ish) Cost Around 30-40 For
    Basic Model's, And Can Go To 1000+ ($) For Pro Version's!!!
    Don't Worry About Not Having One Though, 99.9% Of The Pix On 'analogDreams'
    Were Done With The Humble Mouse.

    Well .. Over To Your Left Is Where To Begin ..
    There's The 'Starting Point' (Start),
    Here Are Some Basic's And A Few Starting Pointer's.

    The Main Tutorial Itself (Page's 1-10), Complete With Pic's Of The
    Various Stage's. These Will Appear Over To Your Right___ --------------->
    You Can 'Right Click' And Save These For Reference If You Like,

    Once The 'Dragon' Itself Is Done He Need's A World To Live In.
    In The 'Composite' Section Are Some Basic Tip's And Advice On
    Finishing The Picture.

    'The End' Is A Little Summing Up Of The Process, (And Some Waffle By Me). :)
