5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, very inspiring, 19 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Art of Megamind (Dreamworks) (Hardcover)
I bought this book with Christmas money over the holiday season. I was ill over Christmas so I read this and greatly enjoyed it. It has information about all aspects of the movie; character design, setting design and the design of the city as well. It also talks you through the process of the concepts into the animation. There are lots of coloured pictures on every page and some pages that fold out to show a larger picture or storyboards. I definately recommend this not only to fans of the film but also animation fans in general, since it is very interesting and inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!, 18 Jun 2011
This review is from: The Art of Megamind (Dreamworks) (Hardcover)
This is a very fine piece of art and a book that all of Megamind fan must have.
Not only for the beautiful concept art that's inside it but also as a piece of the Megamind collection.
It is very complete and very interesting because it gives many information about the work behind the book and the film.
And plus if you want(like me)make some gadget there are many illustration as reference.

This review is from: The Art of Megamind (Dreamworks) (Hardcover)
Length:: 0:53 Mins

The Art of Megamind is another nice large format art book published by Insights Editions. It's 156 pages and sports a non glossy dustjacket for a change.

The pages are filled with beautiful concept illustrations from DreamWorks artists. There are colour strips, character designs, background paintings, storyboards and designs on weapons of mass destruction, some robots and vehicles. The book is filled with plenty of vibrant colours besides blue of course.

There are actually more superheroes than there are shown in the trailers, and they are included in the book. There are sketches for each and you can see which ones made it and which were dropped. The variety is great. You might have seen Minion already, the gorilla robot with fishbowl head holding a piranha. Other designs for superheroes aren't as insane but still very creative.

It's interesting to see how the news reporter Roxanne's early sketches resembles Tina Fey (voice actor) and eventually moved away from that. On a side note, Megamind and Metro Man didn't look like Will Ferrell or Brad Pitt to start with.

The environment designs are also very beautiful and nicely painted. Much is on Metro City and there are also set locations which includes Megamind's lair. Right at the back are some fun designs for Megamind's army which are the robots, vehicles and gadgets. There are funny as well as weird outrageous designs. Donkey missile launcher, anyone?

The commentary is great and talks about the designs and characters.

Overall, a wonderful book for animation fans and artists.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Art of Megamind (Dreamworks) (Hardcover)
Within the pages of this book there are beautiful pieces of art showing how the characters developed over the course of the movie from beginning to end. I recommended this product for anyone interested in the film, or art/animation in general. Great for an art/animation course. A+

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and Blue, 26 Jun 2011
This review is from: The Art of Megamind (Dreamworks) (Hardcover)
I recently purchased the Megamind Art book by Richard von Busack and I am very satisfied with my purchase. The graphics are amazing, and the text is a great compliment making the experience feel complete. I recommend this book if you generally like art books, or if you, like me, love good character design and the work behind it. Buy it!
