Excellent Primer of Fantasy Artwork

This book is an excellent introduction to fantasy art.

great book

I got this book for christmas present and I was suprised, great illustrations from alan lee, john howe, brom, dave mckeane and chris moore. highly recommended!!


This 4.5 star book covers a wide variety of illustrators of traditional and computer media. Although this book is lacking in showing how the illustrators work it shows a good amount of artwork in progress by each of the illustrators shown. In my opinion Don Maitz and Brom are the only ones in this book that deserve the title on the books cover.

Really Good

This Book is Fantastic. I know some people may have been dissapointed that it didnt mention as many Fantasy artists, but for that, you need to buy the "Spectrum" fantasy books. This book is Fantastic BECAUSE It took a few of the many great artists, and let them tell about themselves and how they made it to where they are and what theyve done, as well as some sketches and behind the masterpiece work. There was a wide variety of both fantasy and science fiction, paint, drawing and digital. Great for detail. But if you want an overview of MANY artists, its not what youre looking for, (as I said). The color and layout of the book is done well. Great book to have, especially if you're an aspiring fantasy artist.

Highly recommended!

A wonderful resource for the fantasy/sci-fi artist, or art-lover. Packed with inspiration from some of the greatest artists in the field, with beautiful color art and pages of information quoted from the artists themselves. It shows the process of idea forming, creation and much more.It was one of the first books I purchased when I became interested in the fantasy/sci-fi art field, and proved to be very insightful when looking at the various ways artists approach their work. As a competitive and often undervalued genre in the traditional and digital art worlds, it was extremely helpful to find a book that was written from several different perspectives and an excellent display of the variety that can be found in fantasy art today.I wouldn't consider this book to be a "showcase" of art strictly, but there is still a good selection of pieces from each of the artists that are highlighted. If you're looking for a collection of fantasy art without so much of the written explanations, try one of the Spectrum collections, Spectrum 8 being the most recent.
