Came across this perfection of unimaginative fantasy illustration by chance. And for the record, this is not some seemingly self-published amateur art book. Tommy Castillo is an in-demand illustrator who does work for such companies as Zenoscope and DC.
Clearly, a metal bikini-clad red haired woman with a sword must have been a pinnacle of originality back in 2001 when this book was first published. It’s not like such illustrations have been around for decades already.
