Beautiful book. A must for all artists, 4 April 2010
When I first looked at this book on amazon, I was unsure. After all, what would a manga artist want which graphically produced backgrounds. However, I was interested, I brought it.
I was not disappointed
The work is beautiful, but ulnlike some books, it is not simply a chance for the artist to "show off" their works in the guise of teaching you. The pictures are talked through and stage by stage pictures are included in bright, clear colours. There is also a chance to see what the room of a graphic artist looks like, just to know you're on the right track.
I would heavily recommend this to grpahic artists, manga artists and anyone who wants to create beautiful backgrounds. It's good for beginners, and a good source of information and inspiration for those farther along the course of mastering art. What's even nicer about this book is that it can help those who are unsure where they fit between beginner and advanced.
A great buy!
