4.0 out of 5 stars Nice sketches with some amazing paintings March 6 2010
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Length: 0:22 Mins
One can easily see the influences of Jack Kirby or Frank Frazetta but Alex Horley is more versatile than he seems, applying his craft to superheroes from Marvel & DC, Magic the Gathering, World of Warcraft and other projects.

Sketches form the bulk of the book. There are sketchy drafts and compositions of epic fight scenes, beautifully shaded characters portraits and saucy heroines and femme fatales. The cool sketches show his groundwork and preparation. His knowledge of anatomy, just like artists he admires, is masterly and always evident.

Included also are a few pieces of coloured illustrations. Alex Horley still paints in traditional medium and you can even see the textures of his board from these illustrations. The paintings are gorgeous and captivating, but also too few which make me realise that it doesn't, surely, represent all the work he has done. I like his Venom, Hellboy, Vampirella and the very colourful World of Warcraft art.

Nice book for fantasy art lovers and Alex Horley fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Artist, awesome book!! Aug. 13 2011

This is truly a wonderful book full of excellent artistry from black & white roughs to full color painted pieces, & then some. This has some great commentary from Mr. Horley himself on his working process, influences, etc. as well as others who've worked w/ him. If your into illustration, comic or fantasy art, you really can't go wrong with this. Its well worth the purchase.
