An excellent how-to book! Professionally written, easy to follow instructions highlighted with fantastic paintings by one of the industries most talented and inspiring artists. Having personally worked with Alan during the past 3 years, I have found him to be a consummate professional in every aspect; Elite skill level, easy to work with and very accommodating--wanting to do the best work possible on every project. This book is certainly no exception. Book covers all the important elements of creating great and dynamic heroic artwork as materials needed, proper anatomy proportions, step by step figure proportions, weapons, color theory and mood and the proper use of lighting techniques for the type of atmosphere you may want to capture.
Such legendary warriors as Attila the Hun, Boudicca the Celt, Penthesilia-Queen of the Amazons, the Greek demi-god Achilles, the Norse god Thor and many others (10 in all) are covered from the very basic initial pencil stick figure sketch all the way through to the fully finished painted piece. Each personality comes complete with several "artist's tips" to aid you creating even more detailed and impressive images.
So, whether you are a beginner or seasoned professional, traditional or digital practitioner, one can find a good amount of information and ideas from this book.

This book does a good job with basics and materials recommendations to start out with.
What sets it apart from Most other books though are the Ten progressive exercises/projects that develop one's drawing and painting skills. The projects deal with the creation of paintings of some of the most common Fantasy and Heroic character archetypes. This should provide a sound foundation when creating personal and future character designs! The selection of archetypes is well rounded, and the step by steps are well planned, with excellent illustrations, the result is ten Awesome paintings!

I think this book would be a good follow up to "How to Draw Fantasy Art: Create Amazing Fantasy Characters" by Steve Beaumont, which is equally Awesome, and Also features Ten graded exercises or projects! The main difference is that Beaumont's projects feature Pencil / Ink / Marker finished rendering, as opposed to the Painted rendering style of Lathwell's book.

Here's a link to Steve Beaumont's book:
How to Draw Fantasy Art: Create Amazing Fantasy Characters

With either or Both of these Excellent books an aspiring fantasy artist/illustrator would be way ahead of the game and headed in the right direction for success!
