This is the fourth book in the Sketching from the Imagination series. The earlier three were on creative drawing, fantasy and sci-fi.
All the good things that I've said for the other books apply here as well. This is yet another wonderful addition that's packed with lots of beautiful and awesome sketches. 50 artists are featured in this thick 320-page paperback artbook.
All the artworks in this book are original character creations, drawn in a huge variety of styles. There are characters drawn from simple line art, intricate sketching, bold black ink, pencils, pens and lots of styles from the cartoony animated look to the serious realistic ones.
It's inspiring to go through all the wonderful work. Each artist also has a short profile provided talking about themselves, their work and inspiration. You can also check out more of their art on their websites which are also provided.
If you like sketchbooks or character designs, this is the book to get.
