Volume 17 is yet another great collection. You've work from the (gold) winners: Sam Weber, Omar Rayyan, Steven Tabbutt, Daniel Dociu, Mark Newman, Chris Buzelli, Ed Binkley, Eric Fortune and many other top artists. The Grand Master Award goes to Al Williamson. You can check out the full list of artists featured on the Spectrum website.
Some of the artists who I thought had retired are actually not. It's really hard to follow these artists when sometimes they don't even have a website, or update them regularly. In Spectrum 17, you can catch up on their latest work for the year.
The usual categories are Advertising, Book, Comics, Concept Art, Dimensional, Editorial, Institutional and Unpublished. There are environment paintings, character designs, concept art, sculptures etc. Lots of different subjects and ideas created with different medium and style.
I can't say anything more that I haven't said before. Spectrum one of the best valued and inspiration art annuals around. Highly recommended to artists, art directors and anyone into fantasy art, or into fantastic art.
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
Generally the images are all extremely engaging and of high quality and there is a mix traditional mediums, digital art, and a section of photographs of sculptural work.
Sometimes the themes can be a little dark and there are some violent images and subject matter...so if you want a book full of sweet little fairly images this probably won't suit you.
There are a few of that type though...and otherwise there are many images throughout this book that will capture your imagination.
As an artist I often find myself going through each book over and over marveling at the imagination, and composition and techniques shown by all the artists represented.

As the title suggests, 'The Best in Contemporary Art'.
Showcases the talent of many 'top' Fantasy Artists.
