The Art of Luca

 The Art of Luca has 176 pages, with about 66 pages dedicated to 2d character designs which is great.  The style of this film is probably one of the most distinct and different than any other Pixar film to date not counting some of their Pixar shorts.  To me it looks like the character designers were trying to go for this look and design rules that...

Art of Raya and the Last Dragon

 Art of Raya and the Last Dragon has 168 pages, and this book has lots of great artwork especially character designs from Ami Thompson and we also get to see many great pictures from Shiyoon Kim. Both of them are the art director of characters for this film. There is even a few pictures from Cory Loftis and Paul Briggs. As always with me I wish they...

The Art of Soul

 The Art of Soul has 176 pages, and there is about 35 pages dedicated to character design and that is being nice. There wasn't one section for character designs in the book like in most, they a sprinkled all throughout each section. The book mostly contains backgrounds, some storyboards, and experimental designs for the spirits and the spirit world...

The Art of Onward

The Art of Onward Is a really impressive book full of artwork.  Out of  the 176 pages I would say up to 60 pages are dedicated to character design.  Not only that, but most pages have multiple pictures of them working out what the design could be, before they finalize the character design. This is the kind of stuff we all love to see.It looks like Grant...

The Art of Frozen 2

I thought The Art of Frozen 2 would have been lean on character design since the first movie had already solidified the look of the main characters and the art direction for this new film.  I was very happy to know that I was wrong. We see lots of new artwork with a whole new batch of characters that we meet in this new film. There is a lot of character...

Klaus: The Art of the Movie

 Klaus: The Art of the Movie  Is amazing!!! I am so happy to have this book, and if you are not quick, you will be out of luck because they are almost all gone.  You can still find some here and there on the internet, but you have to find it soon.  The reason why I love this book, is that first of all it has 190 pages and 60 of those pages have an amazing...

The Art of Frozen 2

I thought The Art of Frozen 2 would have been lean on character design since the first movie already solidified the look of the main characters and the art directing for this new film.  I was very happy to know I was wrong. With a whole new batch of characters that we meet in this new film we do see much more character designs and pre-production artwork...

The Art of Toy Story 4

The Art of Toy Story 4  is a pretty good book when it comes to showing character designs, in fact it has almost 50 pages out of the 160 devoted to character design and developing the look for those characters. You also get some nice artwork from Tom Gately and his wonderful ability to capture personality and real life moments that we see day to day.There...

The Art Of Missing Link

The Art of Missing Link  was kind of a missed opportunity.  I went and saw the movie which was really good, but the Art of book was not very impressive when it comes to showing character designs and the stuff that I love to see.  First off you have some very talented Character Design artists who have done some amazing designs for all of  these characters,...

Totally Awesome: The Greatest Cartoons of the Eighties

I was lucky to review the Totally Awesome: The Greatest Cartoons of the Eighties, because this was right down my alley.  One of the best things I loved growing up was waking up on Saturday morning and watching cartoons. I have always wanted to know some of the history and backstory of some of my favorite cartoons like Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends,...
