- Full Description
This is so, so good!! Featuring 150 amazingly realistic paintings, both digital and traditional, this sumptuous volume is overflowing with the voluptuous women, glistening warriors, fantastic beasts and monsters, enchanted lands and extraordinary creatures that have emerged from Patrick’s fertile imagination and technical skill. An anecdote-peppered commentary by the artist runs alongside the artwork, along with exclusive contributions from fellow fantasy art luminaries.
This is a must-have; we've already been captivated by his work for the two how-to books he's done. On top of his highly detailed execution and finish, Patrick's coloring is just astonishing. It is so beautifully done, like Maxfield Parrish or Frazetta. This may just be our favorite art book of the year.
Patrick J. Jones is an award-winning sci-fi and fantasy artist and teacher. His work is collected and published worldwide, and his client list includes companies such as Disney, Lucasfilm and Roc books. His previous books include The Anatomy of Style and Sci-Fi & Fantasy Oil Painting Techniques. Donato Giancola is a World Fantasy Award- and Hugo Award-winning artist who has illustrated cards for Magic: The Gathering.
We think very highly of his work and so we worked together to offer you a special full color bookplate, with a painted image "Beguiled," to go along with this new collection. He has previously produced two fine how-to-draw books, both of which we also heartily endorse just for the artwork alone--the instruction is secondary to us, as fans of his artwork. He has also appeared frequently in the Spectrum Annual. This is his very first collection.
