''Here's how I do it, and why''

This is the premise behind John Howe's first practical exploration of his artistic inspirations, approaches and techniques. This title will appeal to practical artists and fans of John Howe's work by providing step-by-step demonstrations, sketches and oustanding finished paintings, some designed specifically for this book. It covers a wide range of subjects essential to any aspiring fantasy artist, including materials and the creative process, and drawing and painting humans, beasts, landscapes and architecture. The final section of the book provides further inspiration and guidance on presenting work in various forms including film work, book covers and advertising, all areas John Howe has vast experience in. It includes a foreword written by groundbreaking film director, Terry Gilliam, with an Afterword by Alan Lee, the Oscar winning world-class illustrator.

A really inspiring book. Howe is not only good with brushes, he can write to. He shares his knowledge in the field and hands out lots of hint and tips that reaches beyond the scope of illustrating. For you people that enjoy painting with real paint will get a lot of hands on tips and us digital boys will appreciate his view on the craft and how to keep the steam up.The book itself is made in good quality and the pictures are large and well printed. Also, the design of the book is superb.

This book was ramblings and musings of the author. It wasn't a workshop. I was slightly disappointed. The book contained John's Howe's art history, examples of his art, but it definitely is mis -titled. It isn't a "workshop" where you, a student, would learn his techniques.
