Format: Hardcover
Length: 1:04 Mins
Corpus delicti. That's the latin phrase for body of crime, a principle that crime must be proven before a person can be convicted of committing that crime. The choice for the title wasn't explained in the book and I can't make sense of it.

This is a delicious book. The lady you see on the cover is actually Serge Birault's girlfriend. She's detaining the octopus, and judging from the HUMAN SUSHIS hat it's wearing, it's probably cooking something foul. And, she forgot to remove the chopper from its tentacles -- she must be a new cop. This must be linked to the book title somehow.

Serge Birault's illustrations are wonderful. They are cartoons usually, but they have amazing realism with hints of caricature. The characters look real, feel real. I love the expressions on the faces of all the pin-up girls. Yes, it's a pin-up book with lots of beautiful girls with the occasional tentacles.

Serge Birault is a French artist trained in classic painting but now paints digitally with a flair. This guy is all for the details. He can use up to 1000 layers in Photoshop -- who even keeps track of the number of layers, and count them!?

Also included are some more experimental portraits which he calls doodles. I love the pencils sketches too.

Right at the end he talks about his process of painting. There are step by step pictures but it's not really technical talk, just the challenges of creating realism and some drawing tips.

It's a great artbook. 144 pages. Hardcover. Large. If you like pin-ups, you'll love this.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

Beautifully made hardbound book, the art is amazing. Total happy with this purchase, he is one of my favorite artists of all time. Goes into some creative detail, his art is something worth striving for. Just having started up in the digital art realm, this book has inspired me to continue down the path in hopes of creating something as beautiful as this art.

It is absolutely mindblowing! Serge is one of the most precise and most kinky pinup artist in the world! In the book sometimes he shows the live modell and how he drew her. It's a bilingual book (french and english).

I first came across Serge Birault's work on DeviantArt and immediately loved it. This book is an excellent selection of his work, nicely printed on decent paper. Fans and newcomers will not be disappointed.
