5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of robots, sketches and traditional medium March 19 2009
Length: 0:13 Mins
The robot on the cover is Crowbot, traditional medium oil on board. Jon Foster likes robots. In this 80-page art book, there are quite a few.

Progressions is a portfolio book of illustrations, personal and commissioned work. Big name clients include Wizards of the Coast, LucasFilm, etc.

For the full colour illustrations in the book, they are mainly traditional medium. Sometimes, Jon Foster does work on them digitally to repaint certain aspect, as mentioned in the very few captions that appear in the book. I like the lighting for the scenes he creates, very subtle with that occasional slight yellow tint.

The concept sketches and digital paintings are all in black and white.

This art book is very character design focused. Most of the illustrations are actually portraits or scenes with the focus on characters.

Revolution: The Art of Jon Foster, the art book after this, packs more art.

Quality of the hardcover binding for this book isn't really great. The pages might come off (as in my video) if the book is not taken care of.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars A "must-have" for artists and art enthusiasts! April 4 2003
I've been waiting for this book for quite some time now and was finally able to get my copy! I've been a fan of Jon Foster's work after seeing it in the Spectrum illustration annuals and Progressions does not disappoint. Not only is the content of the book exciting and thought provoking, the actual layout lends itself perfectly to his work. Progressions is an interesting combination of sketches, paintings, and reflection which I highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars INCREDIBLE VISUAL STYLE July 19 2003
Finally Jon Foster's incredible visuals are collected under one cover as opposed to appearing on them. From his jaw-dropping work on the various Star Wars books to his retro-futuristic robots, Foster's paintings explode with a stunning sense of wonder. Unlike many other illustrators working in the medium today, Foster's work is consistently innovative, fresh and inspired. A must have.
