    An excellent guide to creating detailed and beautiful drawings of high fantasy scenes and characters. The book covers a plethora of topics including pencil drawings, color, techniques, inspiration, specific elements, and creating stock images to work from. The instructions can be a little vague at times, but he does give a lot of information about tools and supplies. There are also a ton of gorgeous art pieces to enjoy. If I had one criticism, it would be that many of his drawings were based ver An excellent guide to creating detailed and beautiful drawings of high fantasy scenes and characters.

If I had one criticism, it would be that many of his drawings were based very strongly on the same models rather than on imagination. I feel like it's one thing to use a photo as inspiration/technical help and another to copy it directly. But that's a small quibble--overall, this is a fun and specific art book with lots of good information for artists at any level.

    A more accurate title for DRAW AND PAINT THE REALM OF THE FAERIE would be “How to draw beautiful cisgender women with tiaras and wings.” All joking aside, REALM OF THE FAERIE is one of the better fantasy how-to books from the IMPACT imprint. Unlike many books under the label, it doesn’t pass off basic tracing techniques with a stylistic slant as legitimate advice. In addition to Ed Org’s impressive technical abilities, the focus on graphite pencils permits the book to delve deep issues like into A more accurate title for DRAW AND PAINT THE REALM OF THE FAERIE would be “How to draw beautiful cisgender women with tiaras and wings.” All joking aside, REALM OF THE FAERIE is one of the better fantasy how-to books from the IMPACT imprint. Unlike many books under the label, it doesn’t pass off basic tracing techniques with a stylistic slant as legitimate advice. In addition to Ed Org’s impressive technical abilities, the focus on graphite pencils permits the book to delve deep issues like into drawing specific textures and details, demonstrate how various types of pencils/papers differ from one another, etc. A surprisingly large section of the book is dedicated to incorporating models, stock images, and everyday objects into mystical pictures. Furthermore, the pictures never dip into cheesecake or sleaze, a welcome change to the standard treatment of the female figure in fantasy artwork. For the advanced sketcher, REALM OF THE FAERIE holds many nuggets of good advice, but beginner artists may want to look elsewhere. The book completely overlooks non-humanoid creatures, and models/figures are all slim and white. It further assumes the reader already knows how to draw realistic human beings, and therefore only needs to learn a few specialized techniques. As such, the book doesn’t hold the reader’s hand in how to implement these methods in their work. Non-artists, of course, can enjoy the many beautiful pieces gracing the book’s pages regardless.

    I found a new favorite artist --I love the detailed pencil drawings and the medieval/fantasy figures are gorgeous. Part art book, part instructional (though as one viewer has already noted, it's not really a "step by step" one). Check it out in your local library or bookstore if you get the chance. =) I found a new favorite artist --I love the detailed pencil drawings and the medieval/fantasy figures are gorgeous.

    It starts off really strong, and has excellent visual examples. Unfortunately, like all instructional art books, it's a little vague on how to apply the methods. I did appreciate that he specified which type of pencil (HB, 5H, etc) he uses in his examples. It starts off really strong, and has excellent visual examples.
