Product Description

Impeccable Scene Design Just as a landscape without a human element can be stark or impersonal, a character without an adequate setting deprives ones perception of context. Whether in animation, film or video game production, it takes a unique skill set to generate background art that compliments but does not compete with the actors employed or the creative output of character designers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good resource to scene and background design 22 Dec 2011
Length: 1:05 Mins
Weiye Yin is a concept artist with over ten years of experience. He draws a variety of subjects but this book focuses on scene design, creating believable backgrounds that serve as a backdrop for stories in games and films.

The book is split into three parts. First is the introduction to scene design and how it differs from just painting background art. Second part looks at the principles and procedures. Third is a collection of demonstrations that look at how a few scenes are developed, namely Landscape, Environment, Urban Architecture, Atmosphere and Still Life.

It is a good introductory guide to scene design. You get tips on dealing with composition, lighting, colours, adding details, effects, doing drafts and even on dealing with clients.

The step-by-step demonstrations talks in depth about the conceptualization process, the considerations when handling different types of projects. Two of the case studies presents some tips on using 3DS Max for scene designs. Most, if not all, the examples are digital paintings, some with the use of 3D software.

It's more recommended to intermediate and advanced artist who already know the basics of painting and want to apply that knowledge to a different field.

Firstly I have to say that this is a beautifully produced book. A lot of care has been taken to make it presentable and I feel that it's only right given that it's a book about art and design.

The content inside is good too. There are some stunning pictures and there is a fair bit of detail about how they were achieved. I should stress that this is not the most text-book type of CG design material around, so maybe there are other, more authoratitive works out there, but the author is a veteran of the industry and his advice should not be discarded lightly (if at all). Perhaps more for the CG artist closer to the beginning of their career, a student at university for example, but not a work for a complete beginner unless they are ambitious and have a natural flair for it. Filled with excellent tips and advice for refining your work and always from a perspective of having 'been there, done that', this book would be an excellent guide for people trying to improve their skills and a good reference for those who want reinforce their skills and knowledge.

Could you have a better tutor? Maybe, I don't know. But for this price you'd be stupid not to treat yourself.
