Concept Design 2 (Book)

On my Birthday, I receive an amazing present ( no computer games, no),it was the book "Concept Design 2" from my girlfriend. She knows i'm really enjoying this Unit, so she decided to surprise me with this present :).

The book, itself, is amazing , it consist of works of 7 main professional Concept Artists, such as James Clyne, Mark Goerner, etc. And a few Guest Artists, such as Ryan Church and Dylan Cole. The book shows the stages that the artists go through from merely a hand-drawn sketch to an amusing digital concept drawing, These works range from sculpture, 2d concept drawings to matte painting.

In my opinion, It is a must buy if you re really into Concept Art.

P.s- It was advised by Simon Holland and Phil Hosking.

Excellent choice Ruben. The book was produced in conjuction with the Gnomon School and the cover art hangs on the wall there - Definately some talented guys.

Inccidently, if you're looking for Christmas present suggestions you may want to check out 'Digital Art Masters volumes 1 - 3' by Focus Press. Its a good insight into the process of CG and Concept art.
