    Magnificent Imagery Review by Brittany

    Just flipping through this book makes you want to take off to unexplored worlds. Whether you're into sci-fi or fantasy, it seems to have a little (actually a lot) of detail in every new environment that the book has you coming across and it's very easy to imagine the beings that would live in these worlds. The images are magnificent and are more than enough motivation to learn how to paint far of worlds.
