This is a truly beautiful book for those liking fantasy art
on 19 December 2001
I enjoy painting and drawing, and this includes working on fantasy art. I am always interested in trying new things. This book gave me various ideas on what I could explore. It is very nicely set out and the quality of the pictures is really eye catching.
The thing I enjoyed most was the section on the art of Middle Earth. Some of the best examples of this genre of artwork is included in the Lord of the Rings selection. It was great to see the famous and terrifying scene of Gandalf facing the Balrog.
Of course no fantasy art book would be complete without dragons and this does not disappoint. All types of goodies can be found in this gem. The only sticking point is the size of the book. It should have been longer!!
