For some people, sitting through the Bob Ross happy tree type tutorials are about as exciting as watching paint dry. Let face it. Most people don’t pay much attention to technique, light or shading, dimensions, shapes, etc. Most folks will just thumb through the pages until they find something that really galvanizes their inner creep and makes them scream, “OH YEAH!! I’m drawing that right there!!”. Don’t get me wrong. There is instruction. But, it is VERY minimized.
If the impulsive guy or gal I just described above is you, you will probably like this. If you want Bob Ross telling you how to specifically add more branches on your trees because the ones you currently have are lonely, look elsewhere!
One thing I really like is that the book seems to showcase the monster and creep evolutions very well. Werewolves and Vampires are showcased in way that display the very old school type of character to the present.
The book has a creepshow like feel to it and would definitely fall under comic book art. However, there are some sketches that are very exceptional and beyond the comic book type of approach.
Now, for my criticism. The illustrations are far too small for my liking. While I’m looking at the art and ripping off the art I see, I like looking at big pictures to do that. This way don’t like have to strain my eyes. Now, If you excuse me I have company coming over. I’m going to hide this book and show my sketch pad to my visitors and pass off the art work in these pages as my own.. *evil grin* ;)
