5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on April 9 2009
Format: Paperback
Length: 0:18 Mins
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 teamgt.com.

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.

There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.

I very much enjoyed this book.

The author explains very well introductory color and light theory and how it applies to his images. The pictures are stunning and a very good source of insperation. This is not a step by step guide as mentioned by others however it does not fall short of guiding you to the steps you would need to take to start creating your own pieces with such excellent quality as this artist does.

The price of this book on Amazon is amazing considering the amount of wonderfull pieces of art that are included.

Very recommended!

This book is fantastic. It's one hundred one-page techniques you can use to develop characters. This is everything from how to incorporate story, to compositions to visual style. It won't make you an art director, but it may give you the tools to start to think like one.

Great book for those new or wanting some inspirations for some fantasy art. Not recommended for those who know what they're doing.

Still a great book to look at for minor inspirations.
