perhaps the best Royo book i have devoured so far, his work needs no words, no explanation it stands up on its own, but when i read the little commentaries (so much wonderful terse poetry) in here i really felt they added to my appreciation of the work, they really show that he is much more than -just- a 'fantasy artist' his themes are not of the realm of comic books and magazines and pulp fictions, though they use them too, Royo's themes are much older, and beyond even the oft told stories of m...more

This man’s artwork is wicked cool! As a true lover of fantasy art and being an artist, and an author of fantasy fiction, just seeing his artwork inspires me. Some of his work is so dark and creepy, but that is what makes it so great. I never grow tired of looking at his books. This is a great one to add to any fantasy art lover’s collection.

Well, after looking at this book I'm not so sure that I like Royo anymore. I typically love the way he creates his female characters. BUT, the Satanic images and sexual affairs between women and Baphomet (satan) is APPALLING! I don't like evil things. I like dark things. His work could be so much better if he left that trash out.

If I could paint humans, I would aspire to paint like this guy. I love his worlds, and his contrast of beauty and beastliness. As an ugly, "beastly" woman, his art really speaks to me.

I used to have all of his books, but I left them behind when I moved from Austin. I've reacquired these two, and hope to eventually have them all again.
Luis Royo is a phenomenal artist, especially the female form. Having said that, this is not a book for young readers. Most of the art in this book is of a fantasy nature, some I have even seen on book covers.
Actually "I just hate this one"...
And I never thought of giving such a bad review for this when I took the book in my hand....
But... I didn't like his way of saying about girls.. That was a bit bad...
