As a fantasy artist I am always looking for inspiration. Fantasy art requires a lot of imagination and this book was ecellent. The pictures are all very gothic and have given me inspiration for many many drawings and paintings. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy art.

Format: Paperback
Boris Vallejo is a master at fantasy art and this book is full of excellent examples of his work.
This is the second copy I have purchased, as I lent my original copy out and never got it back! So,clearly I think that it is a good buy.
Whilst containing some tips, it is not however, truly a 'technique - work book' and some prior knowledge and understanding of drawing / painting technique is required (in my opinion) to get the most out of it.
Having said that, it is very informative about Vallejo's personal methods; 'tricks of the trade' and his own philosophy of art.
If you want to 'learn how to produce fantasy art from scratch' there are better books available at Amazon but none are as inspirational, nor do they contain such beautiful photo plates.
Well worth the money.

Format: Paperback
Boris Vallejo has become something of an icon among fantasy artists throughout the world. He paints the human figure in such a way as to make it almost photographic, yet adds a touch of the fantastic to his art that makes it even better. Now he has put out a book that goes even further; because instead of putting out a series of paintings for us to ooh and ahh over, he gives the average joe an opportunity to learn to emulate the master himself. I bought this book for myself, and as an art major in college, I have found that this book really shows how hard work and perseverance pay off in beautiful works of art that we can all aspire to create for ourselves. It's not just simple paint by the numbers either, he really digs down into the basis of his painting and even gives advice for beyond the pallette, such as creating a portfolio. If you want to paint landscapes and flowers and bridges and seagulls this is not the book for you. However, if you want to put the fantastic visions of your mind onto canvas, BUY THIS BOOK. You'll thank me for it, you really will.

Format: Paperback
Although a very good book, not so much of a how to book as one would expect. Boris Vallejo simply describes his approach to the art world. One must read and pull out what they want to know; it's not indexed as a how to book usually is done. Nevertheless, worth the investment for anyone wishing even to make realistic forms, and a must for the fantasy artist.
