This book is full of good quality images of Tim Hilderbrandts work. If you are a fan of fantasy and science fiction art then you will not be dissapointed by this, even if you are not familiar with the artist. The book also offers many useful ideas on how to paint, resulting in a book which is pleasing to the eye as well as interesting to read !

As a professional illustrator and fan of the brothers Hildebrandt I was pleased this book was made. Since my purchase of this book I studied it carefully from cover to cover and it's contents are well worth the cost of the book. Although the book isn't written by Hildebrandt himself it's full of good information on how Tim Hildebrandt works. I recommend this book to artist's of all levels of experience due to it's technical info and to fans of fantasy and sci-fi art as well for it's entertainment value.
The BEST "How To" book on painting EVER written. Period! 2 Dec. 2013
By Old Man Parker - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Every Thing you need to Know about how to paint! This is the one book I ALWAYS have with me when I paint! It is simply the BEST book telling you EVERYTHING about how to paint! Better than a University Painting course. He explains in exacting detail right down to what brush to use and what brand of paint to buy. It does not get any better than this. You want to become a painter? Buy this book. Period!
I did ....and now I've won international awards for my fantasy art, and am self supporting selling my fantasy art on line and in galleries. Get serious. Get this book. Don't wait anymore. You have no more excuses, after you read this book, other than your self.

"Not,"I'd like you to look at this' but 'I'm going to MAKE you look at this!'" 22 Dec. 2007
By J. Guild - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I've always been attracted to Illuataation as an art form.Whether it is in nature art,,Bev Doolittle ,book illustrations.B&W line art, Pen& Ink,and various others. I have often read where the art "purests" look down on Illustration as an art form.I have never felt they were correct.In recent years we have been treated to an explosion in this art form,particularly with Fantasy Art.It is mentioned that Michelangelo's frescoes and Leonardo da Vincis art was at the time considered to be nothing more than pure fantasy.Much of their work was certainly illustrative and I think they knew a bit about art.
This book details the work of one of the best Illustrative artists,and shows how he and his brother made a very successful career in this area. There is a great deal of information dealing with their techniques and in manys the book can be considered a teaching resource.Although I am not an artist;I found it very interesting and it told me a lot about what to look for in these paintings.There is also considerable information on what is involved for someone who has a desire to be a successful painter or illustrator.
A very good and informative book for an artist or just someone who admires art and wants to learn more about it.This is a large,beautiful book with excellent paper,printing ,and wonderful color rendition.
Anyone who likes Illustration Art will certainly enjoy this book.

Graphic SF Reader 3 Sept. 2007
By Blue Tyson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I picked this up because I thought if nothing else, there would be some interesting stuff to look at it.

Quite a bit of the not overly dense text is associated with tips or technical comments aimed at artists, so not really of much interest in general to the rest of us.

There are examples of different styles and media, and even a prototype Star Wars poster.

It also talks about how he uses toys and even a stuffed iguana as models sometimes - which explains some of the weird dragons.
