This is an idea book, not a technique book 9 avril 2009
Par Parka - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
First of all, let me say that this book brings back memories of me playing Magic The Gathering cards. A lot of the illustrations in the book are from Wizards of the Coast. Francis Tsai is a concept artist and you can find his work on [...].

This book is not really on art techniques, there are no step-by-step tutorials to follow along. It's one that gives ideas to think about when trying to come up with a character.

That being said, the writeup for the book is pretty good. It gives a lot of ideas on things that can be changed or added to enhance the characters. It can be on costume design, colour combination, using silhouettes, thinking like the character itself, etc. All come with nice illustrated paintings as examples.

This book is more of a resource book that's great when brainstorming for ideas.

If you're looking for techniques, check out ImagineFX's book called Fantasy Workshop: Mastering Digital Painting Techniques.

(More pictures are available on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

Well written and worth it 20 octobre 2008
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
First off, there's two pieces of advice to any aspiring artist/illustrator:

1. "Wanna be a good artist!? Draw! Wishing won't make it happen!" - paraphrasing R. Crumb


2. Practice, practice, practice...

There, that's it. Anything else from art school to books like this are optional.

So why, especially during a tight financial time, did I eagerly plunk down US$20 for this?

Because it is well written, full of good illustrations by some artists I really like - and - full of good and creative and inspiring advice. I'm a hobby illustrator, although some of my political cartoons have been published (and I mean for $) but am always striving to improve my skills and my favorite subjects are of course in the fantasy/scifi areas.

I've skipped a lot of the recent books, considering them too juvenile, such as the MangaMania series, though those are nice. My other favs are the "Drawing and Painting Fantasy Figures", "Drawing and Painting Fantasy Worlds" and the classic "Encyclopedia of Fantasy and Sci-Fi art techniques".

Taking Your Art to the Next Level 9 mars 2009
Par Marice Parchen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If you're interested in improving your artistic abilities from someone who really knows what they're doing, get this book.

The author does a fantastic job of explaining how drawing is not just a creative process, but also a thoughtful and deliberate one. He gives great expert tips and hints on how to convey the feeling and mood of the character you're developing. Some of the tricks include how to focus attention through detail or lighting; how to leverage other elements in the artwork such as secondary characters or scenes to build the story around the main character; how powerful something as simple as eye contact can be. They are all tricks that make intuitive sense once you're aware of them, but probably wouldn't have occurred to you before.

In sum, Tsai's book and tips can have a transformative effect on your artwork. Your art can go from being just a picture on a page to something that creates the maximum visual and emotional impact on the viewer that you intended. It's worth it!

Totally Dissapointed 21 mars 2014
Par Kilyén Balázs - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I was totally suprised by the content.

My first and most mayor problem was, that is does not basically describe you WHAT and WHY. It just says this and that. Like shows you a manticore and says "somethimes animals are chosen to represent a character trait". It wont give you any indepth ideas, ways to think, to draw tips to express yourself.
Even if i exlude the main problem and the purpuse of the book, i still find the content lacking. It shows "Archetypes" of haracters like : THe ghost, and shows a picure of the forgewraith, but thats it...no more examples, tips why it looks like that or what is that archetipe or how is it distinct from other stuff.
For its 127 pages it barely hold any content. Its like a D&D fanart collection of creatures. (and i have seen better from that)

I gave it 1 star because i do like the idea, that is based on actually working fantasy world like D&D
I gave it another star for its price, and some decent pictures that give me ideas i can use later on.

Great for Fantasy Art Ideas 20 avril 2011
Par A. King - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I love to buy art books for inspiration, so I was thrilled that this book actually caters to that. If you are looking for something to help with technique, this is not the book you want, but it will get you thinking about the content of you art and may give you some ideas for subjects.

My only negative is that there are not really 100 separate pieces in the book. Sure, you are given 100 separate ideas, but some of the art is reused. I understand the reasoning behind it, and it's not that it's the exact same picture that's repeated, but I would have preferred 100 completely different compositions, since this is an art idea book.

All in all, I love the book and think it was a great purchase.
