    The art & reference review thread! 2012

    Welcome to the art & reference book thread!

    Hey guys, I thought I'd update this thread with a little something to help anyone looking for photo books for reference or general art books.

    Hopefully I can help anyone looking for such books and that other people are willing to jump in and help too, as I am also looking for more books, art or reference.

    I've posted these pictures of all my current books that I use for study, if anyone wants to ask about any of these books, I'd be happy to take a few pictures of it and a brief overview.

    All of the reference books have large photos of the subject matter inside, which makes them excellent for study.

    You can ask me for a preview and information about the book, size, no. of pages, whether I think it's worth buying or not etc.

    Everyone is welcome to add their own books/recommandations.

    *I made this thread a long time ago, so please excuse my older comments and the lack of grammar :/

    *This was originally a thread linking to a DR Tran animation, so thats what the comments below are concerning

    Because of this toon, each time I see one of Jason Chan's threads, I want to chime in with "Oh shit, it's JASON CHAN!"

    Out of huge respect I contain myself though

    Yea, I love art books. It's eye candy and you can get lost in them for hours. They can be pretty inspirational and entertaining.

    there are a million great artbooks out there.
    but if you can only get one,
    i think you'd like:
    Rakugaking by Katsuya Terada.
    1000 pages of brilliant sketches.

    Art of Empires. It's the art book for Age fo Empires 3. The Craig Mullins artwork makes it superb. There tons of other great stuff in there, though. Although I'm not sure if you can buy it on it's own. I had to get the whoel collector's game set to get it. Worth every penny

    Try Ebay, get "The art of Metal Solid" and "The art of Blame!".

    Another good one its "The Art of Hellboy", both "Ashley Woods: Grande Fanta" and "Goad: the many moods of Phil Hale rock", these are avaible via Amazon, I think.
