Book Description

24 Oct 2012
A tale from the Brothers Grimm provides inspiration for three gifted students from the world-renowned Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Khang Le, Mike Yamada, and Felix Yoon were guided by their instructor, Scott Robertson, to create original design solutions for the environments, characters, props, and vehicles found within The Skillful Huntsman. The trio's sketches and full-color renderings thoroughly document the creative process of concept design, revealing a host of intriguing places - from sci-fi cities to castles - and people - from giants to royalty. A must for artists, aspiring entertainment designers, comic aficionados, and anyone interested in the creative process, The Skillful Huntsman offers insight into the mysterious world of the imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Sketchbook Essentially 13 Feb 2009
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Length: 0:28 Mins
This is essentially a sketchbook. It also looks very much like a school project for art students. And the art students in particular are Khang Le, Mike Yamada and Felix Yoon.

The Skillful Huntsman is actually a story by the Brothers Grimm.

Based on the short story, the artists then came up with concept drawings for the characters, set, props and environment. As you can see in the video, there are lots of sketches on character designs. For every subject, there's comment from the artist on the thought process for the creation. And just beneath that comment is another one from the Scott Robertson, a teacher at the Art College of Design.

It's fun to see how the 3 artists interpret the stories and come up with their own unique concepts and designs.

Bear in mind that this book was published in 2005. These talented students have already gone on to work at major studios.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS is packed full of ideas 7 Nov 2007
By Jay
Format:Paperback
This is like an "art of" book for a film - it contains so many visuals on so many different themes.

From people, costumes, vehicles, weapons, environments, interiors and structures which are presented in simple sketches (pencil, pen, on computer, marker) to fully realised digital pieces - all showing the development and thought process of an idea.

Excellent layout & read. And no there is not that much to read - each page has about one to two paragraphs on text rest in packed full of visuals.

Recommended if you're a design student.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Skillful Concept Art Book 4 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback
By far one of the best educational concept art books out there and a must purchase for anyone trying to learn the development skills of becoming a concept designer.

This book goes through the entire development process and offers a wealth of great insights from both students and teacher along the way.

A word to the novices out there: this book doesn't cover application, but covers in depth the design process and theory of development.

absolute top tier stuff!

4.0 out of 5 stars Shows how it was achieved. 13 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
There are tons of artbooks out there but only a few cover the processes involved with achieving the required goals. Although not that in-depth with text, there is certainly plenty of sweet visuals to fill your imagination which certainly makes this book worth the purchase.

To be more precise there are plenty of sketches/references/ideas to get you thinking.
