Reviews - What do customers think about Wild Sketches 1?
Great Concept Art May 12, 2008
Great book if you love concept art. Intro in the first page or 2 of why this book was done, then each page after has a complete sketch.
Where are the women's noses? Royo's Sketchbook series is better. Sep 2, 2007
In this book and the other "Wild Sketches," I am constantly bothered that their nose tips have been removed in nearly every sketch, yet in his Sketchbook series, this is not an issue. The men have their noses intact in both "Wild" books, by the way. Otherwise, both books are small, nice, but not near as artistically engaging to me as his Sketchbook series as far as quality. The "wildness" seems to be in the speed of the execution of each figure rather than content---oh, and let us not forget those missing nose tips! (And I had hoped the second "Wildsketches" would redeem the first somehow . . . .)
quick glimpse at the creative process Feb 6, 2007
really like the freshness and immediacy of the sketches; sometimnes they are much more powerful than the finished paintings! i find them quite inspiring...
meh Jan 14, 2007
Small format book with good binding. Unfortunately the sketches are mild rather than wild. You get the same vapid model, big busted and expressionless in a few different poses for the 75 pages. Royo's skill in rendering the human figure is obvious but these sketches seem 'set up' as if he set out right to make a sketch book and lost the rawness that makes a sketch a sketch. I don't recommend this one at all, it's not worth the $9.
