I'm familiar with vector work but not to the point of what some of these artist can do. It's great to look at the images.

However, if you're thinking that this book is gonna give detailed tutorials then you're out of luck. The tutorials are great but not for beginners and some are not clear. And only some of the artist give tutorials not all (which is understandable).

There are so few books for Illustrator users (compared to Photoshop) that I purchase every book that is released. My expectations are always so high. However, I've had this book for a while and I really want to like it, but every time I open it it irritates me more and more. Yes, the images are wonderful, yes, the the artists are inspiring, but much of the work is repetitive. I feel like I am looking at the portfolios of a group of fellow graduate students. It seems like they were all given the same assignments throughout their art school years. Two styles abound in this book: 1. Dark, swirly fantasy, fairy tale-based look (pages 48, 66, 68, 93, 155 and 101). or 2. Flat, shadowless comic/cartoon look based on manga and/or swedish folk art (pages 188, 174, 170, 164, 147, 144, 139, 50, and 23).

Ironically Milne's work/tutorial of a cat is the only unique piece in this entire volume. The images I would have liked to have had as tutorials are featured on the cover page, the boy and the puppy in a soft pink landscape, a piece that looks very un-Illustrator and the owl using negative space pattern for it's tummy.

Tutorials. I am an advanced Illustrator user and I had a hard time following the tutorials. Hey, Adobe Press, did anyone "beta-test" them? I read the tutorial on page 38 several times and I still don't follow the opacities and "cut-ins" Are they written in the artist native tongue, then translated?

I have to give "5 stars" to the artist Makarova on page 5. I loved the wedding dress' cloud texture. I emailed her asking how she did it and she was kind enough to not only send me the instructions but also a small piece of the file so I could follow her instructions. If everyone in this book was as forthcoming as Makarova, this book would have received a 5 star!!

great inspiring artwork, nice to look at nothing I could not find on line, the real problem was there are no real tutorials, a paragraph on how someone created a image does not make a tutorial.

Nothing to learn from here. Some illustations showcased in this book (less than half, thankfully) use the same techniques, which is pointless if you approach this publication as a source of tips and inspiration.

But personally, I didn't care for the look of most of the art work. The details as far as their working process seemed rather brief too. If someone wanted to duplicate the look, I think they would have a hard time using the minimal information given.

This book is full of inspirational pictures but the title is misleading. This book needs a lot more tutorials to show the true power of what people can do with Adobe Illustrator.

I had to buy this book for a class I'm taking. It is very interesting and full of great pictures, how to guides, and artist bios. This is great not only for in class reading, but for personal use as well.
