Contemporary, relevant, brilliant!
For those who love to draw, who are not looking for a how to, but rather, simply some inspiration (and maybe a little pleasurable art voyeurism).
Mostly fantasy, very little landscape or realistic, some portraiture.
The styles worked for me, but may not for those who prefer more scenery, or who interpret creative drawing as representational images with impressionistic, and or brush-style marks.
Here, it means primarily fantasy, with a fair amount of Sy-Fy, some

3,5/5 actually.
The sketches are mind-blowing and the book includes many advices for somebody who wants to be more creative. Nonetheless, I think the artists should write more about their artwork and how to improve your techniques.

I was a fun quick read and i actually think that a learnd something. It's so intressing to read about all of the diffrent artist and i feel so inspired. I wished that we could see more of how the final sketch got developed. And the text's feelt repetitiv sometimes.

There are 50 Artists that have contributed their own art and some of them have even put art at the early stages of the design and creation process. There is a brief write-up by the artist (About half a page) varying from: How they get their inspiration or/and what

This could have used a little more editing, and the "insight" promised in the title wasn't terribly profound. Those gripes aside, I'm usually a sucker for some good sketchbook pages and there's a decent amount of variety on display here. Also, hearing artists speak at all (however briefly) about what inspires them and guides the beginnings of their ideas is always welcome.

Best art book I've read all year. Hands down some of the most inspirational and educational examples collected on pages between a cover.
