Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell: The Ultimate Illustrations Reviews
I only wish I purchased the hardback version vs the Kinde version. The information written in the book is well worth the money especially, the question and answer section, it is new and all worthwhile. The pictures are just too small in the Kindle version and I wish I could blow it up so that I can see the detail better. I hope Amazon can do something about that and send a free update. There is a great difference in price between the 2 but without prior knowledge that the pictures would only be 1/3 the screen size, I feel let down. It has been a long time since I purchased a book on the Kindle that I wished to return - now knowing that I could have returned it if I did not wait for the week to go by - it is partially my fault. I would give this book 5 stars but due to the small images that can only lend a rough knowledge between the color and overall composition of the pieces within, I have to give it 4 stars. If there is a free updated version in the near future where the images are larger I may change this review and change the rating.
This is my first Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell art book. They have published many art books so I can't confirm if there are any duplication here. It says in the product description "The Ultimate Illustrations presents the first collection of their sketches in over 15 year and features 100 previously unpublished illustrations."
I have been an enthusiastic fan of fantasy and warrior art most of my life. My two all time favorite artists are Boris and Julie Vallejo. I have purchased most of their calendars and many of their book collections over the years. This one, "The Ultimate Illustrations" is one of the first collections of their sketches, with more than 100 of their beautiful paintings.
WOW!!!=oO I knew after watching Parka's video review that I was going to love this, but I still was BLOWN AWAY with how filled up with GORGEOUS illustrations this book has! And if that wasn't enough there was a wonderful surprise at the end of the book of frame-able prints! I also loved learning about their history and how they met. Sounds like they are true soulmates and it shows in their artwork! Absolutely LOVE this book!!
Beautiful. I love this book for reference on interesting poses for the female form along with dynamic lighting and shading.
Boris is a great artist whose works are really inspiring. The printing of this book is of high quality - clear images and vibrant colors. Really love the artworks in it and should be one of the books that I frequently refer to and get inspirations from. Highly recommended.
great art work, have always liked these two creations.
awesome art work
