agreed with ds illustration... RAKUGA KING: i borrowed this book from one of my sketchgroup friends and it literally blew my mind...
truly an inspiration and the context is so beautifully sketchbooky for lack of a better term. expensive yes. worth it absolutely.
Some of my favs not mentioned
The Art of anything that is a Miyazaki film such as Spirited away
A lot of the old Disney art books such as The art of The Hunchback of Norte Dame
The making of Ghost in the Shell
also this place has TONS and TONS of artbooks !
bloody hell, wasn't expecting this many replys lol. but awesome thanks for all the info, DSilliustration: damn that books looks pretty neat, gunna see if i can find it on amazon or ebay or something.
I'm really into mech and techno shit, is there any which is based around that? apart from the starwars ones.?
MadCat:I searched around and couldt find it, but I posted

*but I guess you only read the big names replies..*
Get all the books Mentioned here, you can never get enough books.
I would recommend SYD MEADS books if you are inte industrial design.
haha of course i read yours man, i went on the site, but being in england i wanted to see if i could get it here, cheaper or faster ya know, looks like i don't have a choice, thanks for the site dude
Motherfuck, syds books cost a freaking ton!..i need a job before i get them..whoo
Intron Depot 2: Blades
Intron Depot 3: Ballistics
Genesis: The Art Of Transformers (out of print I think)
Art of Robots (the Blue Sky movie from a couple years back)
Grand Space Opera (Ballistic but available at amazon - alot are now in fact . . . )
Art of Star Wars Ep3 is very nice, as are the Lord of the Rings ones.
Also, no art book thread would be complete without me pimping Waterhouse.
the Frezzato Sketchbook from heavy metal is rad. its just a bunch of comic sketch pages.
the phil hale art book is cool to. i got the jon foster book to now that i think about it. man ive seen so many that are cool but cant think of them
that book is out of print now, and nearly impossible to find (at a decent price).

Just bought that rakuga king and zenbu (literally ebayed it just now) DS cheers for the heads up.
I'd go for the ballistic publishing books personally, lloads of different takes on the same subject, they really get my mind whirring.
