    Gorgeous I went to art school long long ago when hope was high and life worth living with the intent of being the next Michael Whelan Reality set in in there somewhere and the upshot is I haven't picked up a pencil much less a brush in a long time But this? This made me itch to go find my pencils It's a lovely book on a couple of levels Not an artist and don't care to try? No problem – just page through and get lost in the detailed and enchanting illustrations and maybe dip in here and there to the engaging text Art student? Keep this handy and read it cover to cover and than once There's practical instruction here – including stuff I never learned in school – along with inspiration and encouragement and advice on how to get past the artist's version of writer's block Lapsed art student? Blow the dust off the art box knead the kneaded eraser and dig out the paper – you'll need itIf I'd had this book mumblety years ago I might not have become a lapsed art student I don't know why I've never gotten to know Aaron Pocock's art before but I'm glad to know him now The usual disclaimer I received this book via Netgalley for review

    I enjoy fantasy books so of course I like fantasy artwork I've read a few art books in this genre but I had not read this one Dover often republishes older art books and some of them are classics I had to find out what this author had to contributeMy egalley was not uite in book format A lot of the artwork became fragmented and some of the formatting in the wording was odd I have no doubt that all of this is corrected in the published volume since Dover is well known to make sure older books are close to the format originally published I only mentioned it here since it did not allow me to totally see the examples with the directions I will try not to let it influence how I see the book overallI think there is a lot of sage advice to anyone in the art field in this book I really liked how the advice on how to see things in nature in an artistic manner was presented and how it could be applied to fantasy How to take things we know and both present it in how it is seen with fantastical elements applied and how to change it while still keeping with the feeling of realism I think that is the key to fantasy artwork Taking something that is just familiar enough and make it into something completely new and believableI also liked how he layered watercolor Like his line work it is something that is taken slowly and builds upon itself This book makes a good primer for anyone in any artistic field to have Even fragmented as the book was for review I could see it making my way onto my art shelf in physical formI give this book 4 stars I recommend it to those that enjoy fantasy artwork One of his influences is Arthur Rackham which is evident in the artwork presented It has that same etherial draftsman appeal that Rackham perfected

    The Fantasy ArtroomAuthor and Illustrator Aaron Pocock The Fantasy Artroom is both beautiful and useful The author gives very specific details about techniues and tools He also shows each drawing as it progresses from start to finishIt's easy to follow even for someone who has no formal background in art though in practice I wouldn't expect to conuer a dragon just from reading it It feels perfect though for any artist who is looking to develop or firm up his or her skills in the fantasy department It's also definitely decorative enough to enhance the library of an art andor fantasy loverThe book covers a wide range of detail giving both inspiration and instruction as well as simple encouragement The author talks about his journey as an artist and gives solid advice on techniues and honing your craftThe Fantasy Artroom is definitely worth a read and it's very worth a physical copyhttpwwwtyperoftalescombook revi

    This was an excellent starter book for someone who already has drawing talent I showed it to my niece and she really loved it She was able to draw a pretty good wicked witch from the illustrations shown in a very short time Me however not as well done You can learn to draw all sorts of mythical creatures from this instruction book Mermaids centaurs and such

    I'm not really into fantasy art myself but as an artistillustrator I enjoy reading about different styles and techniues This book is great for learning how to render characterful scenes from real life inspiration and I particularly enjoyed the sections on using inks and watercolours The whole book is a series of tutorials taking you step by step through different drawings but Aaron's light hearted and encouraging tone is really fun to read I can see this book appealing to all ages I love the humour within too such as the tip that a sexy lady with wings stuck to her back does not a Fairy make and how artist's block is imagined by wannabe arty farty types who talk about art rather than doing it You're not made to feel inferior at any point with encouragement given for beginners and gentle reminders for those of us who have studied fine art or illustration that studying the other will benefit your specialism

    'The Fantasy Artroom' by Aaron Pocock is a really good instructional manual for those wanting to create better art or even those just looking for some art to look atThe book starts with basic ideas and tools and builds on them From pencil to ink to watercolor there are plenty of step by step instructions Art supplies are discussed but primarily the art takes center stage Constant reminders to be patient and start with nature are there along with creating for funThe art and text are very accessible The art is fun to look at and the instruction is encouraging and friendly Don't think you know how to create art? The author tells you that all you need to do is to just do it and keep practicing I'm not sure I could accomplish some of the work I found in this book but I felt encouraged to give it a tryI received a review copy of this ebook from Dover Publications and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook

    This is a wonderful book for the aspiring fantasy artist It is less like an instruction book and like a helpful face to face chat with a mentor or friend The author guides you through all the steps for creating creatures from realms of fantasy with an emphasis on telling stories through art If the book has a fault it's in the lack of an index

    I’ve been buying a lot of art instruction books as late as I’ve been trying to develop this skill I’ve enjoyed this one the most so far It does a great job of explaining different techniues with step by step guides

    Aaron Pocock's Fantasy Artroom is a wonderful primer for any fantasy artist wanting to get their feet wet in the world using traditional mediums The book's abundance of all the stages of development help illustrate the process clearly and concisely The book's various sections deal with sketching styles and methods composition including how to make a comic page cohesive inking and watercoloring As a manual on fantasy art it is limited in that the instruction focuses on traditional fantasy art based in nature but its tips can be useful for any artist just starting out even if their intent is to work digitallyAs a fan of Arthur Rackham Stephanie Pui Man Law and Yoshitaka Amano I found the techniues here to be of particular interest Previously I had bought Pui Man Law's series on watercolor but the techniues inside were a bit too advanced for me Aaron Pocock's book fills that need for a stepping stone on my path to better artistryIn addition Pocock's instructional style is casual infused with little areas of humor to break up the study just like a professor might make an offhand joke or comment to break silence in a classroom I found this a wonderful touch as it kept me interested all the way through and broke up the monotony of the textRecommended for traditional artists just starting out those interested in whimsical fantasy styles and beginner fantasy artists This book was furnished to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review
