Instead, each chapter is filled with his past work and sketches with commentary on how they were created. The lessons are mainly on a conceptual level rather than at a technical level, like mixing colours or how to draw. He talks about his inspiration, research process, working style and includes lots of information on things to look out for when painting certain subjects, like characters, scenery, armour, etc.
Towards the back, he shares some career related tips on how to tackle commissions, promoting yourself, and working on set design for the big screen.
This should be an inspiring book for fantasy artist.
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
I also love to draw and wanted to get an insight and some tips on how all the scenery and characters were created for this series of films.
A great tool and guide for the budding artist or for those who just love Lord of the Ring
John Howe not only divulges experiences gained from a decades long career in Art and Commercial Illustration, the reader is treated to some of his most famous masterpieces in a 'behind the scenes' tableau.
We see how he tackles each project as a theme - whether it's expressiveness, composition, design challenge - and are treated to the wisdom of his experience as he leads us through various stages of the work process.
Particularly intriguing is the section dealing with his own artistic workshop setup, as well as his findings concerning dealing with clientele and the industry in general.
This book is a great find, well written, and sure to peak the curiosity of the layman as well as satisfy and inspire more seasoned artists from beginner to intermediate level. Even advanced, veteran artists will glean some pearls of wisdom from John Howe's own experiences within the industry.
This book is priced well, won't break most bank accounts, and is well put together in thick, glossy inner pages, with a hard, soft cover on the outside.
