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.
im not sure if this is what you're asking for, but im also doing a concept art project for uni and i've used books like:
also for a massive collection of video game concept art, try www.creativeuncut.com.
hope that helps!
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
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?
