3.0 out of 5 stars Visual appeal but no great depth, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Art of The Croods (Hardcover)
This book is packed with scenic images both hand sketched and rendered. The movie went by that fast that it nice to look back in a book and discover hidden treats you may have missed.

Visually it is a beautiful book and quite inspirational, but I did not feel it went into enough depth in regards to design and character development.
Most images of the animals you only see the final stylised versions. In some cases there is only a single image of an animal. Personally I would like to have seen more of the character and animal sketch developments, character studies and even concepts that didn't make it into the final film.

Overall its a pretty book and worth the money.
If scenic design and landscapes are your thing then you should definitely buy this book.
If you prefer to see idea and concept development... I'd reluctantly give it a miss.

Hope this has been of some help if you were considering this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Art of Distract 9, 14 July 2011

If you enjoyed the film or simply show an interest in art and model making, then you'll love this book!
There are hundreds of sketches; renders; models; and graphics, showing the development of all elements from the film. There is soo much packed into this book, it's well worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mini Storyboard, 8 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is very pretty, made up from a range of drawings in different media, but there was a lack of design evolution shown. Majority of the book is a storyboard, changing in styles throughout. Personally, I wanted to see the evolution and previous designs of characters, and how they came to the final designs. Introducing concepts of the jello characters were interesting to see, a lost gem in the film that most might not ever see.
Overall is it still a nice book that all ages can enjoy.
