    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.

    Hello everyone,

    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


    Feel free to visit my site: www.videogameartbooks.com

    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?
