    I really enjoyed this book, mainly because there were step by step instructions, and some great illustrations. It really sets this art apart from everything else. Fantasy Art really is art, not cartoons, not that cartooning isn't art, mind you. Fantasy Art alloys the artist to be as creative as possible, in "designing " the ultimate character. What fun this was to read and slobber over.

    A generic "how to draw" book. Some interesting images, but nothing really useful. Particularly if you don't want your fantasy characters to be human. Mostly it's about drawing scantily clad women.

    Honestly, I am impressed about how bad this book is. - The art itself is subpar. - The designs are cliché and thus ultra-boring - There is not much about anatomy, just skeleton, muscle, and poses for the mentioned boring characters. Do yourself a favour and do not buy this book.

    This was really cool! I actually got it because when we had pathfinder at a friend's house I saw the back of it just chilling on her desk and was interested, so I went ahead and just ordered it. xD It's really cool for someone who already draws but maybe doesn't know what they're doing. It's nice because it isn't so much a step by step but more of a "pro tips" kind of set up, which I always find infinitely more helpful. The only thing is that some of the art is kind of... lol.

Like, very traditional fantasy art. Bikini clad babes and knights with huge codpieces. xDD;; But the info is really good, and there are still a lot of cool pieces of art inside too. I also especially liked the pose references included. Would totes recommend!

    Very good fantasy renditions, which the emphasis is really on "fantasy" because of the exaggeration on muscle-groups. However, it shows ways of taking one subject and making it fit the scene. You can take something and make it any thing you want with the know how and imagination.
