5.0 out of 5 stars Macabre Fantasies July 30 2003
By Ric
Format:Paperback
I saw this book in a store yesterday. The title, Darkwërks was what first caught my eye. So I picked it up, looked at the covers, back and front, and began to flip through the first pages. I was amused very much by the art created by Brom in his earlier years. For instance, when he was age 6, he drew quite a bloody scene; a body riddled with knives and sharp objects. So, I started to look through the pages. Immediately, I was captivated by his morbidity and uniqueness. The graphic beauty of each picture shot into my eyes and made my heart quicken. I had only planned to glance through the book, but within seconds I had become a slave to each work of art.
While definitely not for the....."Normal" person, anyone who loves the morbid and macabre will love this book with all their heart and soul. Beautiful, beautiful blood and violence. Femme nikita, freaks of nature, tortured souls and Dark Angels fill the pages of this magnificent masterpiece. BUY IT NOW!!! Hah...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Experience of Brom Dec 21 2002
Format:Paperback
Brom is the most amazing artist in the Fantasy genre. This book is a great buy if you love Fantasy art and you want to see a true master. Forget Frazetta, forget Vallejo, Brom is the one. This book portrays Brom's art to it's fullest. Beautiful, full color prints adorn every page, showing off Brom's masterful talent and attention to detail. Don't miss out on this one or it's sequal 'Offerings'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brom is a master of the limited pallet Dec 6 2002
Format:Paperback
There is no use comparing Brom to Vallejo or Franzetta. Brom has taken fantasy a step beyond the comic book muscles and garish colors of fanstasy artists like Rowena. Brom's use of a limited pallet (most of the works on in browns, grays, white and black with subtle bits of pigment) adds an ethreal quality to his elegant composition. And Brom has painted the best Elric ever. If you love fantasy art and literature, Brom's books are definately worth investing in.

4.0 out of 5 stars A collection of Brom's work June 7 2002
By Molly
Format:Paperback
Brom is a fantasy artist who is best known for his work on his work Dark Sun, Deadlands, collectable card games, and book covers. He stands out from Boris & Julie as well as Frank Franzetta partially for the sole reason that most of (though not all) of his portraits contain people who wear clothing, albeit usually something fetish inspired, leather and latex. He has a very distinct style, painting very beautiful moon-skinned redheads and tan wild-elven creatures, which stand along detailed landscapes that insipre the imagination. Some of his work is disturbing (though not quite as disturbing as H.R. Geiger), and mostly very dark (what would you expect from a man who listens to Nick Cave while he paints?) but all of his work is remarkably well composed and masterfully detailed.
Brom has a larger influence than many people realize, for example the evil albino in the recently released movie Time Machine could very well have come directy from the pages of Darkwerks. To get an idea of how popular Brom has become, just type in his name in any search engine (Google works best). Darkwerks is a very good collection of his art, containing very little text and allowing all of the pages to be showcased in full-sized, full-colored glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brom a true master Feb. 23 2002
Format:Paperback
If you do not know Brom this is a book to get you hooked. Brom may be best known for computer games such as "doom" or his trade card collections. The point of Brom is more than fantasy art there are meanings in each artwork and true imagination. The book is well done with color photos that are very detailed. You can't go wrong with this book and if you collect fantasy books this is a must for your collection

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gothic Art of Brom Dec 30 2001

This book will stay on my shelf for years to come. I bought this book last year from...and it's one of my favorite. The illustrations are gothily beautiful and have dark monocramatic and neautral colors in most of the paintings.
