Overall whilst not being amazingly helpful to a beginner, someone who has got the basics of drawing and shading/colouring would benefit a lot more. A good buy, but not as basic as I expected.
A great insight for art students or hobby artists.
It is neither one thing nor the other in my opinion. It neither goes in to techniques in composing engaging fantasy images or provides any useful tips and tricks. It basically runs as page after page of stock fantasy characters (Frankenstein, Vampire, Robot, Elf, etc.) with, in my opinion, uninspiring images of each one and a synopsis of their background ('The hero is a big character, with large jaw, big muscles' type thing). It wants to be some kind of A-Z of fantasy characters (I need to draw an Elf, what does an elf look like, what are their characteristics).
I guess I might go back to it from time to time but it just doesn't inspire me and if I'm honest, there are quite a few mistakes in the art work that don't make it something to aspire to. All in all I couldn't recommend this book as there must be better examples of this type of book and I think the money would be better invested in something from, say, 3D total who consistently release titles that feature work that most artists can only aspire to reproduce... which is what you need if you want to improve.
