5.0 su 5 stelle Great depth and generous with the art 25 dicembre 2008
Di Parka - Pubblicato su
The publisher of this book is Insights Editions, one of my favourite publishers. Their art books always have extra goodies, at least for the ones I bought. In this case, there are two 8" x 10" original art cards in a tipped-in-vellum sleeve and a 12-page booklet on the creation of Sindragosa.

This is a paperback book and the binding doesn't look strong. Strangely, no hardcover version alternative is available. The pages are rather glossy and oily fingers will definitely leave smudges. They are given the silver-color treatment and the text printed on these silver "plates" is extremely classy.

The book details the production process of the animation in great detail. There is conceptualization, story development, character development, production design and even the 3D execution. To make the book complete, they also included how they did the soundtrack and audio.

On the art side, it starts off with storyboards on the introduction of Tuskassr and Lich King's entrance. Following that are pages of characters, armour, monsters, dragons and environment paintings. There's a generous amount of concept art on Sindragosa and the undead. Also included are multiple screenshots of their 3D creation process like creating matte paintings, composition, animating, rendering, etc. This book is literally packed with artwork.

Blizzard has done a tremendous job with the book and with their game. They have brought together a brilliant team of artists to showcase their talent to the world.

The Cinematic Art of World of Warcraft: The Wrath of the Lich King is a stunning art book. I recommend it to all fans of World of Warcraft, or any fantasy concept artists.

4.0 su 5 stelle A Beautifully Packaged Book For Warcraft and Concept Art/CGI Fans 4 gennaio 2009
Di Jon Huff - Pubblicato su
I picked this up on a whim because I'm a fan of concept art and I thought the cover was cool. I actually started playing World of Warcraft AFTER I got the book. You'd think a cinematic that runs about 3 minutes and 30 seconds wouldn't been enough to make a whole book about. But man it is! There are a lot of pictures here, but that's not a bad thing. It's utterly flabbergasting the amount of work, love (and surely some blood, sweat and tears) went into the creation of the Lich King, the dragon Sindragrosa and their environment.

The concept art was probably my favorite part. You get to see tons of beautifully rendered art. The section on the actual construction of the CGI images is also fascinating for someone who knows only the basics of how this work is done. An elaboration on some of the more technical passages might have been nice but it doesn't detract from the book.

My copy, at least, seems to have a printing error. A couple pages are printed twice. There doesn't seem to be any pages missing that I can tell, however. There are two prints included which are very nice and a small illustrated (in pencil) story of Sindragrosa. The silver 5th color used on some of the pages is subtle and well done, but lends an air of class to the whole book.
4.0 su 5 stelle Really awesome 14 gennaio 2014

The book was well protected with air pockets all around so I received it in pristine condition. But the copy I got, the glue on the spine already dried :( Thankfully it's threadbound so it's not falling all over the place. Nonetheless, the content is absolutely gorgeous, my boyfriend loves it a lot :)
5.0 su 5 stelle More incredible art from Blizzard 4 marzo 2013

Wrath of the Lich King is my favorite expansion of World of Warcraft, and I'm glad that they released something that specifically looks at the awesome opening cutscene for the game. Blizzard still has some of the best talent in the world, and this book continues to prove that with its beautiful artwork.
The only criticism I can give it is that I really would have liked it to be in hardcover. Regardless, if you're a fan at all of quality fantasy art, this is a great addition to your collection.
4.0 su 5 stelle Heads or Tails, Blizzard knows what they are doing with cinematic art 18 gennaio 2013

Blizzard has always produced high quality cinematics with all their games. Why not have near poster size prints of them to match.
