5.0 out of 5 stars In a sci-fi world of his own, 13 Feb 2009

This review is from: Structura: The Art of Sparth (Paperback)
Length:: 0:16 Mins

Sparth (aka Nicolas Bouvier) is an amazing concept designer and illustrator with an impressive portfolio. You might have been awed by some of the paintings he post on his blog. Now with this book, you can enjoy his work easier.

This book features his concept art and matte paintings. Some of the projects included are, just to name a few, Prince of Persia - Warrior Within (2004), Assassin's Creed (2007) and those not included are Alone in the Dark (2004) and Cold Fear (2005).

The theme is mainly futuristic science fiction, except the some he created for the game. There are quite a few cityscape paintings with flying ships. The worlds he created as just as imaginative as Star Wars. They are beautiful and believable. There's a good sense of space and the vastness for the environment painting that I really like.

This is a book I can easily recommend to sci-fi art lovers.

If you like sci-fi art, you can also check out Quantum Dreams: The Art of Stephan Martiniere and Quantumscapes: The Art of Stephan Martiniere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have art book., 22 Jan 2011
This review is from: Structura: The Art of Sparth (Paperback)
One of the few art books you don't need to look through before buying, you will find most of his work in daily life. If you like computer games that is. Even then you'll find he has done a lot of work for movies and books. Its one of those must have books.

Sparths work is amazing so this book should really good. I've always loved what he and the steambot guys did for digital painting and Photoshop in general.

The Ballistic publishing Concept Art title that feartured Sparth really showed off his work very well so i hope that this book does just as well.
