Book Description

24 Oct 2012
Carlos Huante was born in East L.A. in 1965. Besides chilaquiles and Yerba Buena (mint tea), Carlos grew up on stop-motion monster movies. Since that time he has pursued his passion for the arts by creating some of the most original monsters and characters, for both film and animation, ever seen! Monstruo is a collection of Huante's personal, original work featuring a wide range of monster and character designs, from simple pencil sketches that magically capture the gesture of his subject, to full-color digital and traditional media paintings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very unique, very dark 13 Feb 2009
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Length: 0:11 Mins
Despite having a title called Monstruo, the book isn't all about monsters. Carlos Huante has included some very unique and dark character designs. In the afterword, he explains why he choose such dark subject matter.

There are pencil sketches, sculptures and digital paints. The subjects include monsters, humans and mecha robots. The character designs are often out of the world.

The introduction is written by Carlos Huante himself. There's also short biography. Right at the back, he explains the meaning behind 6 of his illustrations.

Oh, there's a hardcover version for this book as well.

You can check out more of his work on his official website. There are galleries for images and sculptures.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars creepy and mindblowing 17 Feb 2008
By M. Nitschke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
it is hard o really describe this book but with one word: amazing.

the organic creatures/ monsters, the characters, illustrations and color schemes are frightening.

his sketches are perfect.

I got this book for quite some time now, and it still inspires me with new ideas every time.

his characters have such an enormous dramatic apperance that it hurts in a very good way when I watch the illustrations.

A must for all anatomy/creature- and illustration-fans.
Ah yeah, his sculpting skills...yeah, you guess right!..

Even if your not into sci-fi this book will impress. It is a mix of hand made and computer rendered illustrations that are top notch. The hand drawn images are very revealing. Would make a great technique source book for any artist.
