As many of you know I am a fan of art, I mostly follow pin-up type artists such as J Scott Campbell, Adam Hughes, Mark Brooks and collect art prints from these and many other artists.

But, I also collect art and 'making of' books from movies, cartoons and video games. I love to see how things go from concept to finished design and rough sketches that artists come up with throughout the process.

I have a ton of books, too many to list here, but I'll start with some that I recently received...

The Art of How To Train Your Dragon (http://www.amazon.com/Art-How-Train-Your-Dragon/dp/1557048630/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1271253585&sr=1-3)

It's an amazing book and it's still available at Amazon.com for a fantastic price. Here's the link....

I have a huge collection of "making of" and art books. I started with the original Art of Star Wars back in 1977. And I love the Joe Johnson sketch book. I think I copied everything in that book when I was a kid.

http://img80.imageshack.us/img80/9620/287m16t.jpg (http://img80.imageshack.us/i/287m16t.jpg/)

Another one of my favorites is The Book of ALIEN. Besides Giger's work, it features designs by Ron Cobb, Chriss Foss and Moebius. Everyone thinks of Giger when talking about ALIEN, but those guys played a big part in the look of the movie too.

Not mine, but check this out. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/teohyc/4066923507/in/set-72157604732571202/)

Why is the Art of Irom man so insanely exspensive!!! was it made in short supply? i saw that there is going to be soon or already released Paper back version that you can get on amazon for 20-30 bucks.

I realy wanted the HC ever since the movie was released but could never find it in stock, and whoever had it was selling it for over 300 bucks at the time.....what gives??

Power, about a year ago I was looking for the Iron Man HC and it was selling for that much. I did some detective work and found a book store in Florida that had it in stock for $30! I bought their last two, one for me and one for Ironfingaz, I really lucked out.

What's funny is that yesterday morning I got a cancellation email from B&N from the order I placed online for this. The Wife and I went to The Grove yesterday and went to B&N on a whim, they had (4) copies and this was the best one I could find.

That's a good question, but I would guess they have low print runs compared to most books. Either that, or they've turned into collectibles so the price goes up once they go OOP.

I'm just glad I have the SW Chronicles book because that sucker is very expensive now.

yeah, I got my copy a couple of weeks ago. It's a really nice coffee table book with great pics of WW art past and present by the likes of Adam Hughes, George Perez, Terry Dodson, Phil Jimenez, and other greats from WW past. This book isn't an art book per se, but more of a biography with great pics and splash pages that covers WW's history from the beginning. There's nothing new that you haven't read about WW before and the art is stuff we've seen before but it's a great WW companion for fans to have.
Also coming up is "The Essential Wonder Woman Encyclopedia" from Del Rey

Typically I like Alex Ross art, but I'm not feeling that one. Looks like a photo taken from Comic Con with all those different troopers posing behind Vader. :dunno

I don't see that in this print at all :dunno

It just seems weird to me to see him with Stormtroopers, Scout Troopers, Hoth Troopers, AT-AT Drivers and Tie Fighter Pilots all in one scene.

Thats what makes it so cool :wink1:

but i do see your point too, i just wouldn't go as far as saying it looks like a bunch of fanboys dressed up at comic con :D

Got my Iron man books today. Damn they look great. Didn't go through IM2 much as I want to wait to see everything or most everything on screen.
I'm holding strong, just two more days 'til I can look at mine.


I started reading my Art of the Princess and the Frog last night. I love this book. I like the anecdotes they have along with the pictures. That's what I didn't like when I flipped through the Avatar book. Mostly just pictures. I like to have some artist insight when I'm looking at these books.
Yup, that's the exact reason why I didn't get the Avatar book. I'm sure the Making of book will be much better though.


a few pics from the StarWars Visions book :D

I see that. But it's an image that would have worked better with just snowtroopers or just troopers. TO me.

Regardless of your accusations, that is a nice start to the collection...but you are not a Jedi yet! :vader

P.S. Does it hurt that your Iron Man 1 book isn't Hardcover? :D

And it looks like there's an art book listing on Amazon for Dreamworks' next animated feature, Megamind.

That listing has been up for a while now, but I had no idea what it was about. Now that I know it's for a Dreamworks film, I'll most likely order it. Their track record lately more than entitles them to that!
