Format: Paperback
Generally with books of this type (Beginner to Intermediate "How To" books) you get some good info, and some less useful info, or even No info on what you're looking for. That's pretty consistent in my experience, it's difficult to cover All or even Most of a given subject.

That's why I'd like to give a "High Five" to Steve Beaumont's: "How to Draw Fantasy Art" !!!!!

The book does an above average job of covering the "basics", and then introduces Ten fantasy art drawing exercises / projects. The obligatory Perspective basics are not located in the section of the book that they are in most other books,
but where they really seem to fall into place!

The first three exercises are referred to as "beginner" level, and the subsequent seven projects are "more complex" or advanced. All this with Excellent step by step illustrations, and even Yes... Reference Photos!
The wide variety of exercises presented in this book are designed to increase your skill level step by step, and include Pencil Line & Tone, Marker & Ink Line & Tone, and Inking. This is a book geared toward Fantasy "Illustration", Not about "Sequential" art, Per Se. All the exercises are designed to produce "Stand Alone" single illustrations, and Character Designs. This does not mean an artist interested in sequential art would not benefit from this book though!
The caliber of tonal finish taught in these exercises could easily serve as the basis for acrylic, oil or watercolor paintings, or... "Shudder" digital paintings! OK, I'm a Lover of Traditional Media! But, I was Once an IT professional, go figure?
My personal aspiration is to become worthy of the titles: Artist & Illustrator! Steve Beaumont's book is an Excellent start in the right direction for Me!

Format: Paperback
This is a fairly useful, competently realised workbook of its type.

Beaumont's 10 step-by-step projects are presented in a clear, no-nonsense way, from source material to rough sketches to finished artwork, in a well laid-out manner.
His approach is a comic-book/graphic novel style which could easily be adapted for illustration work; he covers a good range of approach including pencil work, tonal work, inking, using felt-tip pens and working on toned paper. Along the way he presents the basic principles of perspective, simplification and stylisation of the figure and face, good information on materials and techniques and general ideas about arriving at a concept for your artwork.
Its all information you can find in other publications, but this is as well presented a volume for getting started as any I`ve seen.
It does - as most of these kinds of books do - presume a level of confidence and competency with drawing to begin with, but don`t let that put you off; even trained artists can have difficulty working from imagination if they haven`t had lots of practice or particular training.

I have no problem recommending this as a worthwhile guide if you are prepared to put in the hours working on the projects creatively and if you can obtain the book at a good price.

This is a good guide to how to do it....
it clues you in on what is next, step by step until you have a finished product. It runs you through the set up, blocking out the character, then details, highlights and how they got ideas. This is the best book yet on drawing. My hat off to the author. He does a great job, brilliant really. Anyone who is learning should start here.

Good for beginners, lots of though and planning were evident in the book with attention to different styles particularly of pencil vs pen

Nice course for stretching one's imagination beyond standard drawing instructions ... fantasy art requires emotion and expression other than classic poses. Good product.

This book contains a number of practical, hands-on lessons that progress in difficulty as you move through it. The officer pays attention to both materials and methodology, and covers a wide range of topics. Very useful for the aspiring art students out there.
