Book Review: The Sketchbook of Loish: Art in progress

The Sketchbook of Loish: Art in progress - 01


This is Lois van Baarle's (aka Loish) second artbook. The first artbook The Art of Loish: A Look Behind the Scenes featured her many gorgeously painted illustrations. This second artbook takes a more intimate look at her sketches, the work that she doesn't post online, but work that has the greatest impact on her work.

The format of this book is same as before since they are both published by 3DTotal Publishing. It's still a somewhat squarish hardcover, and there are 152 pages.

There's a good amount of pencil sketches included, some are from her days as an animation student. She's already quite good at drawing back then but her work rate and willingness to learn made her an even better artist. It's really inspiring to read about her thought process, struggles and career. You can tell she's a rather candid lady by how she writes. Definitely check out her interview with Art Side of Life too.

In addition to character art, there are also landscape art and those look terrific too.

This is a beautiful and inspiring artbook. One of 2018's best artbooks. I highly recommend it to fans of her work. You'll appreciate her art more when you know the effort she has put in to come to where she is today.
