5.0 out of 5 stars A bit thin but still good 13 Feb 2009
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Length: 0:14 Mins
This is the second art book of Stephan Martinere. The first being Quantum Dreams, which I reviewed a while back.

This book continues his portfolio on science fiction work. It includes prints that were created for books, film & commercial work and games. At the end of the book are a few pages on his personal work and a description of his design process.

While the book focuses heavily on futuristic cities and landscapes, a few creature designs are included.

The book might be a little thin but at least the quality is top notch.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice additon to the first book. 7 Nov 2007
By Jay
Format:Paperback
There is much more elegance in this book than the last - once again Stephan brings his unique artistic talents to bring more strange and visionary illustrations/designs.

This book presents a mix of work created on paper and computer - there is also a nice step-tutorial at the end of the book where Stephan goes through in creating the front cover of this book. Insightful.

A counter part to this first book with a slight more focus on the mood/colour of the pieces. There are some really astounding artwork (pages 14-19).

His work/designs on the Heaven: The game are truly astonishing, intelligent not at all cliché - what is more, it looks like he has designed the sets, architecture by hand!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book but could be better 3 April 2007
By Son75 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not as good as the previous collection from Stephan Martiniere (Quantum Dreams) because there was too many sketches & and not more finished paintings. Also some paintings deserved to be reproduced in a bigger format.

The comments by Stephan Martiniere are very interesting though and I especially like the last chapter showing the various steps he went through to paint the image on the cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book! 26 Dec 2010
By DSNG Artist - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The testimonial at the beginning by the creator of the Odd World gaming universe was just as insightful as the peerless collection of work itself. Stephan is a master of his craft, and if you are a digital colorist or a fan of digital paintings you will love this book. The only drawback is that it is rather short - it does have a book spine, holding about 100 pages - and at the end you'll be craving for more.
As a writer/artist, Stephan is one of the key influences for my work [The DSNG Chronicles] helping me to describe neo-industrial and futuristic landscapes in my stories to perfection, just by gazing endlessly at his perfect work.
I'm looking forward to his next book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Book covers, video game art, and creature design collection 27 April 2008
By Tim Smalley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Stephan Martiniere is in demand for his bookcovers, character design and work in motion pictures. In this edition we get an expanded look at his creative process, as he shows us step by step how he works on a bookcover. He also gives us several alterate covers, and some explaination of why they were not choosen. I reccomend this book as well as his other book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice. 26 Jun 2007
By Onion - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Quantumscapes, Martiniere's second book, is quite good. It has a good variety of artwork, from sci fi book covers to concept art for heaven. Images are clear and rich. The book itself is large, and is printed great quality paper. Binding is very good.

A great book. I recommend it over Quantum Dreams.
