Format: Hardcover
Length: 1:16 Mins
(Spoiler alert! Spoiler in the video starts from 1s)

This is a lovely art book for the movie Brave. This is number 13 for Pixar if anyone's counting.

The book's 160 pages and it's all filled with art and commentary. The concept art is great and you can really feel that everything really fits well together, the characters, the landscape and the stories. There are character designs, environment drawings, sculpts, storyboards and colorscript.

This is Pixar's first period film. The environment designs are a bit dark but that's because the movie is set in ancient Scotland. It's interesting to see a mythical and worn landscape as designed for animation. The colour choices are quite muted, perhaps to give more contrast to Merida.

The characters and art are delightful to look at. They are so full of personality. They have all sorts of characteristics and shapes that make them stand out. There are a few pages of storyboard sequences that are really great, even without words you know the chemistry between the characters and how they are feeling.

Steve Pilcher is the production designer and there's a lot of his charming drawings included. His pencil drawings really beautiful and dimensional. They really bring the characters and places to life. Other artists included are Carter Goodrich, Steve Purcell, Noah Klocek, Matt Nolte and more.

The book doesn't really talk about the story as a whole, but the text do cover the characters and their development. So there's bits and pieces of spoilers throughout.

Overall, it's a wonderful book put together by author Jenny Lerew. It's a good read with great art.

Highly recommended for fans of Pixar and animation art.

"Pixar is a force to be reckoned with, they just dont stop". I ordered this product from amazon after seeing "BRAVE" the movie. It took nearly a whole month to get here, but was it worth the wait? Hell yes. If shows the art over the years of hard work and production. It's amazing to see how much work, really does go into it. The art in this book is visually
Stunning. From the paint, pencil and even digital works, this book really does stand out and lives up to PIXAR's name. Jenny Lerew did an excellent job.

A really great read followed by beautiful artwork. It tells the story of making the film, talks about people who made them, about locations they visited and where they got inspiration from. It shows how concepts evolved, including not only the final concept art. Lots of Scotland-related and celtic art, painted drawings.

This a gorgeous book!

Introduced by John Lasseter, and with a forward by the film's co-directors Brenda Chapman and Mark Andrews, The Art Of Brave shows off the superb conceptual art, including storyboards, character studies and environmental art from artists like Steve Pilcher, Noah Klocek, Daniel Lopez Munoz, Mike Mignola and many more, plus sculptures by Greg Dykstra and Andrea Blasich along with gorgeous photos of the behind the scenes process of making the film.

Be warned though, as it features some of the storyboards from the finished film, it does give away certain plot points that you might not want to know before watching the film.

Aside from that though, packed with so much gorgeous art you'll just want to stare at, the book is very much worth adding to your bookcase!

I ordered this book a little while ago excited to see the concepts for Pixar's new film 'Brave', as I have lived in Scotland all my life and was intrigued to see if they were able to bring across the atmosphere of the country.

Overall I'm very pleased with how they did, the book is well made, with good prints as well, as I have come to expect. The only negetive I came across was that it contains spoilers and as the film is yet to be released I was a smidge disappointed in that.

Well worth a buy if you love pixars style and the beauty of Scotland!!
