Nice art but only an okay art-book.
on 22 July 2013
The Art of The Last of Us was a must buy for me. As an artist in the video-game industry I felt that I wanted dive deeper into the world of The Last of Us. However I was disappointed to find that most of the artwork in this book is only about concept art and loose abstract sentences regarding the world itself. There were loads of imagines of the main-characters and the thoughts behind them but not very much about the world itself.
There is little to no 3D-artwork or Textures shown in this book, nothing about lighting, their engine, VFX or Animation. If compared to the Uncharted 2 Artbook this one comes across as very lacking. It is a good buy for Concept Artists though, however if you want something more than concept art you should probably take a look at their Behind The Scenes video called
"Grounded - The Last of Us" Which is a really good behind the scenes video.
