    I must admit that I figured I would buy this book mainly to just flip through for inspiration, but reading it was such a treat that I wanna smack my original thought straight out of my head. *Read* this one; you'll be glad you did. Can we just talk a minute about how laid back Vallejo is about being an artistic genius? That should be the subject of this book. He throws little bits of incredible at you so casually that you scramble for paper to write it down.

Can we just talk a minute about how laid back Vallejo is about being an artistic genius? That should be the subject of this book. He throws little bits of incredible at you so casually that you scramble for paper to write it down. If you find something that hits home for you, write it down immediately. You won't find it again. That's not an exaggeration. This book isn't written as a reference; it's more of an extended conversation with Vallejo as he talks you through his works and specifics like underpainting techniques and skin tones. So there's no actual way to come back to these tips, they simply exist and it's up to you to put them where you can find them. Nevertheless, the whole thing is stunning. Lots of big color plates, original pencils, fun polaroid reference photos, and an actual forward by Isaac Asimov. This book oozes cool.

    This is another title from my paper tiger collection of books. This is one of the many Boris Vallejo books out there (and as such concentrates on his earlier work rather than his and his partner Julia Bell). This is not only a showcase of his work but also shows a small glimpse in to his world and the work he does to create one of his iconic and famous pieces of work. It still amazes how far not only his influence has reached but also how far his artwork has too. He has illustrated for many a fam This is another title from my paper tiger collection of books.

He has illustrated for many a famous author, film and character - the fact that the forward is by Isaac Asimov just demonstrates his renown.

    I cannot tell you how many times I read this books over the years. I really loved fantasy art and dabbled a bit myself though not enough to share with the world. There was alot of good information in this book for the classic artist. It predates all of the electronic media we are so accustomed to and therefore is of greater value in my mind. It reflects the artwork I grew up with. (Am I showing my age here?) At any rate, I still love the book and I still have the original copy my parents bought I cannot tell you how many times I read this books over the years.
