My daughter-in-law loves this artist so I thought I would get this for her for Christmas. She loved it! I chose this book after reading the reviews....a couple of the reviewers were actually fans of Luis Royo and appreciated the sketches as well as his finished artwork. I appreciate art the same way and knew my daughter-in-law would too...and I was right.
"Conceptions" says it all. If you aren't interested in the beginnings of Royo's amazing art then you won't appreciate "conceptions" of his art. Every true work of art starts with a concept.

I really like Luis Royo. This is one of his books where you can see the pre drawing, the added detail, and then the finished product. Or there will be one picture on the left and the same girl in a different picture on the right. I think at the end there was even a sequence of 6 or 7 picutes that were kind of like a story.I would definately say this is a book to get if you are a collector.
A Bit Disappointing I2010年6月28日 - (Amazon.com)
If you're a Luis Royo fan, which I am, you might like this book; however, it's just sketches, no finished artwork. While it provides insight into Royo's creative process and how his artwork develops, I thought it was a bit disappointing.

This book was disappointing to me for two reasons: First, it's a smaller format than many other Royo books. Secondly, this book contains only SIMPLE pencil drawings of some of Royo's artwork. It's just a rough sketchbook. The cover art is the most elaborate of all of the images in the entire volume. And although the pencil images are well done, they lack the amazing realism of his completed color paintings. Illustrators (or anyone who's aspiring to be one) may enjoy it, but others like me probably wouldn't. If you're just discovering Royo, I'd recommend getting Secrets, Malefic and Visions instead. In my opinion, Women isn't worth buying, because it simply doesn't reflect the mature Royo fans love (rather, it highlights Royo as cheesy 70's sci-fi cover artist).
