An excellent purchase. The author, apart from being an outstanding fantasy artist, is very erudite and an excellent teacher. The book concentrates on the creative process while giving enough guidance on techniques without these dominating. Well illustrated with the authors own art work.

I love John Howe's work. This book is a delight and great to read as well as view his work. It is lovely to look at the rough pencil sketches and read about his working process, and makes the reader want to pick up their sketch pad and pencils and start creating imaginary Worlds. Well worth the money and not the usual format of art creation books.

an incredibly informative and easy to follow art book, which caters to fans of fantasy art mostly, but gives brilliant tips to any budding artist. It shows a good range of techniques, with information on drawing and painting styles and development of pieces.

Anyone who loves watching the extended lord of the rings dvd extra's should love this book.

Great book, provides a good insight with some very professional work. Not at all pretensious as you can sometimes get with art books. Its is very thoughtfully written. I found this book both helpful and interesting. Books like this make me glad that people like John exist.

A wonderful compendium of John Howe's work. I wish it was twice the size with even more information on his techniques, but perhaps I'll just have to buy his other books.

Extremely impressed with the content of this book. Good for young and old artists alike, starters or more experienced. Plenty of designs to choose and practice from. Excellent and inspirational.

Very good diagrams and clear guidance on drawing 'fantasy' worlds, although just as good for general drawing techniques. Highly recommended !
