5.0 out of 5 stars Great for fans and character designers, 22 April 2009
By 
This review is from: Udon's Art of Capcom (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.

It's not a fan art book. They are all drawn by the UDON artists.
