    I'm a fan of Brown, and not just because of the material she paints. I read an interview with her and she admitted she wasn't a natural artist and that she's always had the drive to create beautiful pictures and then worked really hard to achieve it. With this book you can see her flaws and what elements she needs to work on (faces, feet), but you're still enthralled by the scenes on the page. She's very human and so is her art.

    Amy Brown is by far my favorite fantasy artist, running a close race with Nene Thomas & Jessica Galbreth. I was so excited when I found this book at an available price. It has a little text about each piece, which I'm a sucker for & usually is what persuades my like/love barometer. Before reading this, I never knew the astounding total number of artworks she'd produced over the years. A definite must-have for all fantasy art lovers!!

    I love her art. Hers was the first fantasy art that I came to know.

    From my teen years obsessing over faeries and other mystical creatures. Love, love, love her art style.

    Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books... 1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future. 2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author. 3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up. 4 sta Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books... 1 star...

It has earned a permanent home in my collection and I'll be picking up the rest of the series and other books from the author ASAP.

    Creative character and fashion designs by one of the most influential fantasy artists of today~ I like the story of how she came to be a successful artist. While her style is not my favorite, tending to be flat, static, and a little wonky in proportion at times, the flaws add to her REALNESS, and you can see how she's progressed over the years! The world adores her, and that is a colossal accomplishment.

    I absolutly love Amy Brown - although her drawing aren't perfect, her imagination just captures you and the flaws are not important... There is something in her faries that draws me inside them and I find myself staring at the pages... I even made a tatoo by one of her drawings - I like her drawings that much I guess :) I gave a 4 because there are better artists, but grading isn't everything...

    I bought this when I was going through a big Hot Topic phase in high school. At the time, I was hooked. I had the pens, I had the stationary, the works. But after looking through her books once the black eyeliner washed out of my eyes, I realized that her fairies all have the same face and body structure. Creative yes, but I think she ran out of inspiration halfway through her book.

    Fairly, goblins, etc. Can see why Charles deLint wrote the intro. If you enjoy his stories then take a look at her artwork. Lovely. Although it does get to be a bit overwhelming looking at this collection. And a tad repetitive. Can't decide on a favorite.

    I like this artist's work. But I wish a few things: (1) she could paint eyes better, (2) she would paint feet differently. Some paintings reminded me of Michael Parkes, whom she acknowledges as an influence.

    I really treasure this book as a window to the world of imagination and wonder! Beautiful drawings and amazing detail in her first book! I feel inspired to create after looking at her artwork! Great to show to children and their friends. Very Beautiful and poetic!

    I like a lot of the ideas in here, but the more I looked at the pieces, the more I noticed all the little mistakes in anatomy, etc. Also the way she draws feet REALLY bothers me. Agh.
