    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.

    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.

    that book is out of print now, and nearly impossible to find (at a decent price).
    however, there is a NEW jon foster book coming out soon, sure to be 100x better than the last!

    agreed. I pikced up spirited away, howl's moving castle and pricness mononoke art books. The background watercolor paintings for pricness mononoke are stunning.

    Young paddy
    your in england right? how much did you get them for? used or new?

    Spirited away is one of my fave movies so i'll def look into getting the art book, mmm found a pretty cheap one (just amazoned it) under 9 quid. nice.

    gunna look on ebay now

    EDIT: I found Katsuya Terada on ebay, comes up with a US shop, cost 66 dollars, with 25$ P&P, Diles website was cheaper than that. Young paddy is that the same result and price you got?

    ehh, I got both the Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle art books and wasn't really sold, a lot of the pages are dedicated to stills from the movies.

    The Skillful Huntsman is a book no artist should be without.

    The World of Kong: A Natural History of Skull Island is one of the most incredible books I own, it gives a background on the formation of the island and the evolution of all the creatures in it, as well as page after page of amazing paintings.

    I would also recommend The World of Dark Crystal, which I have yet to pick up myself, but the film is an absolute visual masterpiece, and the book gives a ton of great background, as well as all of the early sketchwork.
