Our Highest Recommendation. By Patrick J. Jones. Foreword by Boris Vallejo. One of the very finest how-to/art books we've offered! A unique, behind-the-scenes look at the creative process and artistic philosophy of one of the masters of Sci-Fi and Fantasy art, Patrick J. Jones. Influenced by Boris Vallejo and Frank Frazetta, he shares the secrets of painting Conan, mermaids, and other-worldly creatures, from initial pencil sketches to finished art--astonishingly finished, amazing pieces, I would add. Featuring detailed, step-by-step tutorials packed with information, advice, anecdotes, and professional tips and tricks, this is a must for any serious student of the genre--or any fantasy art fan. His work is AMAZING.

One of the very finest how-to/art books we've offered! A unique, behind-the-scenes look at the creative process and artistic philosophy of one of the masters of Sci-Fi and Fantasy art, Patrick J. Jones. Influenced by Boris Vallejo and Frank Frazetta, he shares the secrets of painting Conan, mermaids, and other-worldly creatures, from initial pencil sketches to finished art--astonishingly finished, amazing pieces, I would add. Featuring detailed, step-by-step tutorials packed with information, advice, anecdotes, and professional tips and tricks, this is a must for any serious student of the genre--or any fantasy art fan. His work is AMAZING.

Every page is packed with illustrations from sketches to the finished pieces with lots of commentary plus sections on palette, elements of design, photographing models and a gallery of oil paintings. Patrick Jones is an award-winning artist and teacher. His client list includes such companies as Disney, Lucasfilm and Roc Books. His original oil paintings reside in art galleries and the homes of private collectors worldwide.

I should be familiar with his work but I recognize only a piece or two that may have appeared in Spectrum. It doesn't matter if you are an artist wanting to study this or just a fan like myself--this is an amazing collection of work in the tradition and quite as powerful as the best of Boris, Frazetta, and I would add Howard Pyle. I can't say enough here--his work reminds me at times of Jose Segrelles, one of the very finest fantasy illustrators ever. Don't miss this!! -Bud
