From the Author
The book Art of Isis Sousa & Guests showcases many of my paintings from the period of 2010 until middle of 2012. It includes some video captures, lectures and tutorials and dozens of tips.

One of my ultimate goals in life is to master my art, and for that I need this whole life time if not a few more incarnations! While I am just starting in this journey, I can share with you some of my processes, ideas and techniques. Maybe they will in

** I won this through a Good Reads Give-a-way**

I was blown away by the beautiful artwork throughout this book. The colors are very bright and lively. Ms. Sousa and the other featured artists have a great talent. This book really is a master-piece for the art world. I really enjoyed reading the "tips" as well as the pointers such as saving files of work that you might not think you will need.

My husband enjoys working on different computer programs for art and this book is a gold-mine of knowledg

This is the very first book of Brazilian-Norwegian fantasy artist Isis Sousa. In this book, we get to know Isis personally and learn about her inspirations, stories behind her characters, how she works out some problems and her ideas about some stereotypes.
There are lots of useful tips about her tools, texturing, painting facial components, gaining exposure on art communities, being an artist as a profession and how to become a better artist. If you already know the basic concepts of digital pa

This art book is pretty amazing!
Isis is a wonderful person and very talented artist, which can be seen and also felt in all her works throughout this book. The tutorials in this book and the video lectures that are coming with the digital version are easy to understand and really helpful. You can feel how much thought and time Isis put in her book, shaping it into something special.
Also the artworks done by Isis and her fellow artists are simply gorgeous!
I really recommend any fantasy artist to

MOST ASTOUNDING ART & INCREDIBLY INSPIRATIONAL WORDS that every new artist would benefit from. In all honesty, SIX STARS barely cover the brilliance of this book.

The cover pretty much sums everything up. Her artwork shows beauty; rare, true, and unadulterated beauty . The intricacy of the brush strokes, her attention to each texture, to each gradation of colour is so refined that I cannot even begin to imagine how much effort Isis must have put into this. Every line and colour shows

Art of Isis Sousa & Guests... What would I say if I had to define this book in a few words? Let me see. Brilliant, mind blowing, beautiful and high quality! Each work in this book is like a living, breathing creature that's ready to move and walk off the pages. This is truly a collection of amazing artworks!

The full review is coming soon and this book is featured on my blog: Beautiful Pages. Thank you.

Utterly beautiful.

Sousa et al have really done themselves proud. Although all the work is absolutely breathtaking, the book is, for me anyway, an excellent showcase for the work she produced between '10 and mid '12. To have created so many amazing opera in such a short space of time is absolutely awesome. I just hope that she hasn't burnt herself out, and that there's more to come. I'll certainly be keeping my eye out for this young lady's work in future.

A gorgeous fantasy art book from a very talented artist.
Starting from the original idea, concept, technique and until the final result of creation, this book proves to be an extraordinary art tool, dedicated to the fantasy & digital art lovers, as well as to all artists. Its a beautiful book with pleasant and easy to follow layout and also, and not the least, with amazing works from great artists from all over the world.
Thank you, Isis Sousa!

Incredible book of art. The images within are beautiful, I found the 'how-to' tutorials interesting, but not useful for me. I really think it requires a more talented artist than me to make the most of them. As a fantasy writer though, I found these images inspiring and very, very impressive. I'd highly recommend this to anyone who has an interest in fantasy art. Particularly character portraits.

Beautiful and amazing artwork! I love the details and the tips are fantastic. My godmother came to talk to me while I was looking at Isis Sousa's work and she couldn't help but gasp at the beautiful artwork. I am definitely going to try and implement the techniques in this book the next time I try graphic art again.
