I am about to start a project designing concept art for a video game, and I need some books related to the area as a reference...but I am struggling to find any. Can anyone help!?!?
Search for Artbooks!
For your project:
Just start scetching and juggling with ideas. If a certain mood is important make colorthumbnails and present them to your team.
Huge artworks won't be the first thing to deal with so don't worry.
Artbooks are good inspiration but don't copy stuff
thanks for the advice!
I'm not looking to copy stuff, I need to include the books in a bibliography, the project is for uni. sorry that wasn't clear! I need some based on video game art theory etc. too, it's to show I have researched the subject thoroughly.
im not sure if this is what you're asking for, but im also doing a concept art project for uni and i've used books like:
also for a massive collection of video game concept art, try www.creativeuncut.com.
hope that helps!
Here are some:
Parka Blogs <- Most dangerous blog for artists (and their wallets).
I just had to register here as soon as I found this thread via google, when I was looking for video game art books
I sure as hell donít want to beat a dead horse (this thread is a bit old) but I love the topic, collect video game art books myself and I feel it's still a relevant topic. I have also started to create a little website where I review these books - so far there are only a couple of reviews online, but Iíve got quite a backlog to work myself through
Some of my favorites include:
The Art of Darksiders 1 + 2
Dark Souls Official Design Works (unfortunately in japanese only )
The Art of Alice Madness Returns (my most favorite - it's so wicked!)
The Art of Halo 4
The Art of Assassins Creed 3

I hope the moderators are cool with this post. Please keep this thread alive and post about video game art books you like. I also feel that video game art books are becoming more and more prominent these days. What do you guys think?
