5.0 out of 5 stars Great for fans and character designers 22 April 2009
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Length: 0:22 Mins
This book is supposedly out of print. When I saw it on Amazon in stock, I just grabbed it instantly. I'm pretty sure this is a reprint although nowhere inside the book suggested that. Currently, the book is back in availability in most places. Oh, the out-of-stock prices went over US$100 the other time.

Udon's Art of Capcom is Udon's art book tribute to Capcom published in 2007, signifying five years of working together.

This book isn't just about Street Fighter, although it takes up the main bulk of the book. It also contains art for Darkstalkers, Rival School, World of Capcom and Capcom Fighting Evolution. Many of these are full page colour illustrations.

The artistic style is mainly Japanese manga so I guess most of the artists are the comic artists. I've read other reviewers say that some of the images have appeared from the comic books, so there might be some repetition. I don't have the comics so I can't comment on that. Let's just say that the art is still great.

For Fighting Evolution, many comic panels for character endings are included.

Right at the end are two tutorials on how two of the illustrations are created, one being the cover art. The tutorials are from Arnold Tsang and Omar Dogan.

This is a recommended book to fans of Udon and character designers.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought you loved SFII ? not like these guys ! 11 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is two thirds street fighter II pictures maybe later books in the series will have more from other games? I will be sure to find out as this book is stunning. I once got a capcom art book when i was in japan and while that's was a little better (more varied) it was in kanji which i don't read. I have a few other Japanese art books masamune shirow and the like. This book really stands out. The bold bright fun images in here are a real joy to own. Great inspiration for comic book artist's or just fun for lovers of popular character art.

My copy of Udon's Art of Capcom has finally arrived from Amazon Canada, after 2 months of shipping! I must remind myself not to buy stuff from there again without choosing a faster shipping option.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellently Excellent. 6 Mar 2008
By Leonardo Huizar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
UDON's Art of Capcom is a great purchase for any fan of the Capcom Video game series. It features covers from video games such as Street Fighter, UDON's Street Fighter Graphic novel/comic series, and other famed fighting game series'. If you are a collector of Videogame artbooks, be aware that this is actually made by and from UDONs artists themselves and does not feature any of the Art from Capcom's own Graphic Artists. This book is drawn extremely well, has rich details, and amazing colors.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantasic art of CAPCOM's finest 18 Feb 2008
By JC86 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Quick and simple: Udon has put together a great book filled with beautiful illustrations and cover art from their history with the CAPCOM characters.
If you're looking for original CAPCOM art this isn't the book for you but if you appreciate professional CAPCOM "fan art" and simply love the CAPCOM characters don't hesitate to add this book to your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection but lacked a bit in new content 13 Jan 2008
By W. Guan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The art is great in UDON's Art of Capcom but overall i felt it lacked a little bit of new content. The problem for me was I've seen a lot of the artwork from reading UDON's Street Fighter comic. Don't get me wrong there are some stuff I haven't seen before but the majority of the work seems to stem from the Street Fighter comic.

I loved the inclusion of Resident Evil, Darkstalkers, and many many other franchises from capcom but like i said before it was still lacking. I just wished there was more art from some of the other franchises, especially from Resident Evil because it's one of my favorites.

Overall though I'd say the book is worth the amount you pay.
