Review

This is possibly the best “Art of” book that I have every seen. This huge book contains art of the video game printed to the very edges of the page.  Many concept paintings featured are actually collage of photographs and art. Look closely and you’ll see photos erased and digitally manipulated to form the shape and composition required. They look amazing. As concept paintings, they capture the mood and atmosphere really well. This is in part because the color values are captured correctly, resulting in a convincing environment. All the paintings in this book look great to me. The end result looks more like art than photos.  There is plenty of character art as well as environment art. Highly recommended to those who like concept art and fans of the game.
