I love the game, specially Joel & Ellie. I wanted to have the concepts that
you unlock on the disc in print form so I was really looking forward to this artbook.
It sucks that there is no credits for the game artists.
The publisher Dark horse books could not even print a tiny list somewhere,
what balls to include other people but not the naughty dog folks, specially the concept artists.
Blows my mind at the lack of respect & common sense.
Best pages in the book are 8-9, whoever did that concept I'm grateful for it
and gave me so much feels seeing it after finishing the game, good job.
Pages 18- 21: Are pure gold, a couple of those Ellie concepts could've been placed one by one on a full page.
Pages 32-33: I like it when they place an establishing shot with some storytelling besides the barrage of iterations, We all do those I know.
Pages 46-49: Nice art and iterations
Pages 74-75: Some awesome designs, too bad they are so small on the page, y'all can see them bigger on screen if you unlock this concepts.
All the infected section is full of nice concepts, imho I think these designs look great up close but
80% of the time I see the zombies from far away or even through "Joel's hearing mode" which makes them look like silhouettes.
There's a lot of potential to unlock with the whole funghi infected concept on the next game, specially on the silhouettes,
but hey that's just my 2 cents.
If any of you Naughty Dog Artists read this, "high five" I wish I knew who you are.
If any of you Dark Horse Books people read this, "kick" I wish I knew who you are.
love the daily sketches, and the sketches you posted with the book review are awesome too, but do you limit yourself with the time you have to complete each of these? and i hope this doesnt come off bad, but it would be cool to see some more sketches that are a bit more defined.
