Two years after publishing Fantasy Workshop: Mastering Digital Painting Techniques, Imaginefx has finally come up with a second book of tutorials. This time, it has fantasy creatures as drawing subjects.

Similar to the previous book, this book actually collects the tutorials that originally appeared in their monthly magazines. So if you're already a subscriber of the magazine, you're basically going to see the same tutorials, hence no point buying (again). This book is a better deal for non-subscribers.

There are 6 categories featured are namely
1. Faeries, Fables and Friendly Giants
2. Beasts in 3D
3. Vampires and Demons
4. Myths and Monsters
5. Alien Races
6. Creature Features - for other subjects that don't belong to the previous categories

The presentation is also similar. It's loaded with step-by-step demonstrations, some interviews and tips from top digital artists. The demonstrations are actually a look at the artists' workflow, from concept to the final touches with lots of screenshots. The artists teach a mixed variety of stuff from picking skin tones, to creating different texture effects like scales or rotten flesh, to creating atmospheric mood.

Note that the demonstrations aren't the type of tutorials where you are to follow along and click stuff on the screen. That said, this book isn't for beginners because it doesn't teach the basics of digital painting. It goes straight into application. You'll get more out of the book if you already have some elementary knowledge on digital painting, drawing and the software.

The software used is mostly Photoshop, and there are a few chapters featuring Zbrush.

Wer das ImagineFX Magazin kennt und vielleicht sogar etliche Ausgaben besitzt kann sich den Kauf dieses Buches getrost sparen, da es sich nur um eine Zusammenstellung der "Workshop" Kategorie des Magazins handelt. Viele, der im Buch vorhanden Workshops, lassen sich kostenlos auf der Seite von ImagineFX ansehen und herunterladen.

Ich hatte mir mehr ausführlichere Workshops gewünscht, da ich die aus dem Magazin schon kannte. Die Tips und Tricks sind interessant und die fertigen Bilder sind hübsch, aber wer detailierte Anleitungen erwartet, der wird bei diesem Buch entäuscht werden, da ein Workshop eigentlich nie mehr als 5 Seiten hat und die Workshops selbst nicht aufeinander aufbauen, sondern nur ein ähnliches Thema haben.
Alles in allem ist das Buch in Ordnung, man lernt ein Bisschen was daraus und hat viele schöne Bilder zum Anschauen.

You'll get more out of the book if you already have some elementary knowledge on digital painting, drawing and the software.

The software used is mostly Photoshop, and there are a few chapters featuring Zbrush. If you're not familiar with the software, there are quick tips such as keyboard shortcuts and other tricks.

The goal of the book, I feel, is really to give ideas, highlight possibilities and show you what the software is capable of. In that sense, it's an insightful book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A learning guide 22. September 2011
Von Love - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you are just starting out with digital programs, this might not be what your looking for. This books gives you steps to improve your art in digital painting but its meant for those who have worked with the programs before. The steps are not meant for children, their meant for people who know what each thing is. If you are still learning, find a more beginner friendly book that will help you with it. This one, though full of GREAT tips expects you to understand the program and be able to find the basics and then some.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Misleading 15. Januar 2013
Von Dalan Moore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
There are a lot of sub-fantasy genres out there so to be fair I have to say that they covered a broad array. I looked through the pages online and was really interested because of the quality of the cover art. I wanted to explore that kind of process. The book was lacking in the process for that particular work. Disappointing. And the book should have been renamed Mermaids and Monsters. That would give you a better impression of whats in the book. Nothing like the cover other than, yes, still being fantasy I guess. The process' are sound in the book so you can still learn some solid techniques but you've got to browse through an axe weilding, bare breasted, mermaid and some really uncreative and unpolished demons before you get to the dragon/serpent on the cover. Most all of the other examples are a completely different flavor and are just uninteresting and un-impressive. But again... plug through it and you can pick up some sound work flow and process.

No thanks. There are better books out there.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A great "companion book" to other digital painting books!!!! 11. Dezember 2013
Von AParkR - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
There are some examples that I liked more than others, but the book is a good resource for digital coloring and painting methods. As I stated elsewhere, this book works best when paired with "Essence:Creatures" or any other sci-fi/fantasy/horror-themed digital painting books. For those who may subscribe to Imagine FX Magazine, there's nothing new here unless you're a recent subscriber or you're discovering it for the very first time. As with most of these books, those who have some artistic skill will get the most inspiration from this book. However, it's not inaccessible to beginners. Most of all, this book is available for a price that won't break the bank--especially if you get it from Amazon like I did.

5.0 von 5 Sternen FX Series / Fantasy Creatures. 3. April 2012
Von Johnnie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I am a digital artist and I am always looking to learn new techniques. This book deals a lot with Photoshop, which is not my Software of choice, but the examples are great and I don't have a problem substituting Corel Painter and Gimp to get the artwork completed.
