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.
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!
