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.

Not surprisingly, the Look Inside via Amazon offers more generic creative fantasy/sci-fi scantily clad supermodel-looking ladies next to various monsters and machines.
