On the back of each illustration is a collection of one to three elements related to the process. Sometimes there are initial sketches, or even alternative sketches that weren't used. Sometimes there are initial roughs, uncolored pencil drawings and selected Photoshop layers. As an amateur artist, I find these initial sketches are almost more interesting than the finished works. My only complaint is that sometimes the choices of what to include are eclectic, and certain elements almost seem like teasing, for example a "shade and fill layer" offered up with no more explanation of how this related to the process of creating the finished picture.
If the book was going to show this much of the process, I would have liked a little bit more text, perhaps, or more images showing how the pictures were put together. As it is, while the initial sketches are interesting in their own right, I almost wish some of them could have been traded for a few more completed artworks. The book almost seems too short.
Although I appreciate the large format for the art, it also makes the book difficult to shelve, and I end up treating the book very carefully because of the spiral binding, which seems prone to damage to me.
These negatives aside, it is still an incredibly beautiful book, well worth the (very inexpensive) price.
This is perhaps one of the best art books I have ever had the honor of owning and I plan on treasuring it for years to come.
If you've ever seen James Jeans work online or his covers they just can't compete with the images reproduced in this book.
