I bought this book containing the works of Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell some time ago, and found the expressive faces captivating (just look at the vulnerability in “To Become a Man“).
That, and the strength in the figures – and I’m not just talking about muscles. Look at the angel stare you down! And you wouldn’t want to mess with Julie’s Rogue (not that you’d want to anyway).
I’ve more recently discovered Julie’s fine art website, and fell in love with her horse paintings. Beautiful, aren’t they? So delicate and strong and alive. Hope you’ll enjoy browsing too!
