- It's an amazing book Review by Nuno
- Very good collection of quality art Review by Frank
The settings, the characters, the props and the motifs in all the different styles are very well crafted. I like the book especially because of the many artists, so there is not "one view" throughout the book.
But not only the quality of the art is very good. The prints are so clear and apt, that you can learn a lot by studying the make of the workpieces. There is only a tiny indent: there is no opening gap or a opening tongue. It is a little bit difficult to get the book out of the slipcase.
And of course it is a joy to view the art and the layout of the workpieces. The book's "story" is well told with its good mix of portraits, settings, stories and props in varying styles and moods.
I like the book and I think every friend of (not only) digital art should own it. And for this price its a bargain! (Posted on 11/11/2015)

- Stunning Review by Roofpig
The print quality and protective cover make this instantly stand out. The content covers a good selection of themes and concepts with a heavy sci-fi / action theme throughout, but be warned - theres one or 2 "glamour shots" which dont make it ideal for opening in the office (learnt the hard way) - then again.. I guess that depends where you work.....
At the reduced price this is a bargain and you will not regret getting it. Its a continual resource for inspiration for me. (Posted on 08/05/2012)
