1. Oktober 2013 Star Wars Art Series
From Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston to Doug Chiang, Ryan Church, Iain McCaig, Erik Tiemens, and the next generation of animation and video-game artists, Star Wars Art: Concept collects, for the first time ever, the very best of Star Wars conceptual artwork. As curated by George Lucas, the artwork that helped bring the Star Wars Saga to life is revealed in all its glory, featuring conceptual and pre-production drawings and paintings from the Original Trilogy, the Prequel Trilogy, TV shows (Droids, Ewoks, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Detours) and the most recent video games, such as 1313. Spanning the years 1975 to present, Star Wars Art: Concept is a fascinating look at the highly specialised art of conceptual design, the process of taking verbal thought forms and turning them into visual masterpieces. From pen and paint and paper to the digital realm, the consistent result is the creation of breathtaking iconic worlds, vistas, vehicles and characters that have been seen before--and which successive generations of the public have embraced and made their own. Star Wars Art: Concept is a book unlike any other--and which could only be brought to you by the creator of the most enduring and popular saga of our time.

2.0 von 5 Sternen This is not the book you're looking for. 16. Oktober 2013
Von Michael - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
If you want art by the original concept artist Ralph McQuarrie, you might be disappointed, quite like I was, to find there's not much by him here. I believe I counted maybe seven pieces by McQuarrie in the whole book -- and the best piece, Deak Starkiller vs. Darth Vader, which is on the cover and is obviously cropped a bit, is sadly zoomed in on and cropped even further inside the book, showing only a close-up detail of Vader. I was hoping to get that cover painting in its entirety, without the title lettering, along with a lot more from McQuarrie, inside this book, but unfortunately the publisher was much more interested in showcasing concepts from cartoons and videogames rather than the original concept and character designs from the original visionary artist, Ralph McQuarrie.

There are a few nice pieces within the book, with a small handful belonging to Joe Johnston (who also deserves more pages), but overall I just can't get past my disappointment that this is certainly not in any way, shape or form a definitive book of Star Wars Concept Art. I suggest seeking out the Illustrated Star Wars Universe and the six out-of-print Art of Star Wars Episode books instead -- although, they're not complete with all of McQuarrie's or Johnston's art either, there's a lot more in those books than you'll find here.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A Little of Everything 22. Oktober 2013
Von Skuldren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Star Wars Art: Concept is the latest in the series of Star Wars Art books from Abrams Books. The previous books in the series include Visions, Comics and Illustration. In this book, the focus is on concept art from a wide variety of artists. It also draws on more than just the films. Included is art from the films, from television and from video games. There are paintings, sketches and digital pieces all depicting various Star Wars concept images. As far as picture books go, this is a pretty nice one to look at.

The book comes in hardcover with two editions. The regular edition runs in at 176 pages with 125 illustrations. The limited edition runs in at 244 pages with 175 illustrations. It also cost ten times more than the regular edition, but it does come with five hand-signed giclee prints by Doug Chiang, Ryan Church, Joe Johnston, Iain McCaig and Erik Tiemens. The signed prints certainly make the limited edition attractive for collectors, however, I personally think the additional illustrations in the limited edition is a sore point for those who opt for the regular edition. Four hundred dollars is a lot of money for those who just want a book with the most concept art they can get.

The artwork includes quite a few artists, some more recognizable than others: Ralph McQuarrie, Joe Johnston, Nilo Rodis-Jamero, Doug Chiang, Ed Natividad, Ian McCaig, Erik Tiemens, Glen McIntosh, Ryan Church, Stian Dahlslett, Alex Jaeger, Sang Jun Lee, T.J. Frame, Warren Fu, Wayne Lo, Jackson Sze, Pat Presley, Kilian Plunkett, Steffen Sommer, Patrick Jensen, Hajime Sorayama, Chin Ko, Amy Beth Christenson, Greg Knight, Chris Voy, Eddie Del Rio, Chun Gee, Nathan Stapley, James Zhang, Richard Lim, Jan Urschel, Fabian Lacey, Kinman Chan, and Jonathan Bach.

Together those artists cover the six Star Wars films, the Droids and Ewoks animated television series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes, Star Wars: Detours, The Force Unleashed, Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, The Clone Wars: Jedi Alliance, Star Wars: Starfighter, Star Wars: First Assault and Star Wars 1313. Star Wars 1313 gets quite a bit of attention with 15 illustrations, most of which are new. I also noticed that there seemed to be more artwork from the Prequel Trilogy than the Original Trilogy. However, there is a good mix overall from all the various projects.

Aside from the artwork, the book includes a nice foreword by Joe Johnston, and two introductions: one by Ryan Church and one by Doug Chiang. Finishing the book off is a short interview with Erik Tiemens conducted by J.W. Rinzler. The book also has a very nice artist biography section in the back giving each artist a little paragraph bio and page listing for all of their featured artwork. Whether they got one piece of artwork in or twenty (high score going to Ryan Church due to his work on Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars 1313), all of the artists received equal length bios which is really nice to see.

Now the book is first and foremost a picture book. With three pages dedicated to the introductions, four pages for the artist bios and one page for the interview, the rest is all pictures. Some illustrations take up part of a page, some take up a full two page spread. The results in some blank space. There isn't a lot of info for each picture. The artist of the illustration is provided, what project it was for, and a very brief description of what the illustration is, and what medium it was created on. The quality of the art featured in the book varies. There are beautiful paintings, highly detailed location shots, cool looking character art and iconic scenes. There are also some rougher concept illustrations, but the vast majority of the artwork is of a high caliber. Due to the large amount of picture content, readers can flip through the entire book in about an hour.

I do have some reservations about the book, though. Primarily, my issue is with the scope of the book. Since it covers the films, the television series and the video games, it doesn't cover any of the subject matter in its entirety. The sheer amount of concept artwork available for all of those projects combined would be impossible to combine altogether into one book, especially one that is only 176 pages long. If you're looking for a comprehensive collection of concept art for any particular project, this isn't the book you'll want to check out. It has a smattering of concept art from each project, but it's more of a teaser than a satisfying array. Of course there are other books that have far more extensive collections of concept art for specific Star Wars projects. The unique thing about this book is that it covers almost all of the Star Wars projects all in one book.

It's a give and take, but I think the book could have benefited in being twice as big and including more artwork. Alternatively, given the wide range of concept art, the book could have benefited from having a much more specific focus. For instance featuring only character concept art, location concept art, or vehicle concept art. On the flip side, they could have focused on concept art by a specific artist. As is, the book's focus is just too broad to feel satisfying given the length of the book. Also, it would have been nice if they inserted more artist interviews throughout the book, thus giving it an added reading value and filling up some of the blank space rather than just placing one interview at the end of the book.

If you're looking for a book that gives readers a buffet of Star Wars concept art from various movies, video games and television series, then Star Wars Art: Concept is worth checking out. However, if you're looking for a comprehensive collection, you'll definitely need to pick up more books than this one. Regarding the content of the book, I'd recommend this one as a gift rather than a straight up purchase. It's fun to look through but limited in its use. I give it a three out of five.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Star Wars art lacking some organisation 9. November 2013
Von Parka - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Star Wars Art: Concept continues the Star Wars series of large oversized hardcover artbooks from publisher Harry N. Abrams. The books before are Star Wars Art: Illustration, Star Wars Art: Comics and Star Wars Art: Visions.

I didn't know what to make of this book before buying. It's about concept art but there are already has dedicated artbooks for all their six movies.

Well, this book features a mixture of concept art in the style of fully painted pieces, such as those from Ralph McQuarrie, some comic style art with outlines and markers, the very textural grayscale scenes you see from Doug Chiang and digital paintings. You can really see the transition from using traditional to digital media for creating art somewhere in the middle of the book. I definitely prefer the traditional media art, even though the digital paintings are also good.

The paintings are beautiful, standard and varies, but mostly look great. The rougher ones are the digital concept art paintings.

There are portraits and character designs, locations and cool scenes. My favourites would be all the locations and background art as they are really beautiful and detailed. There are two paintings I thought are from military FPS video games until I spotted the Stormtroopers and AT-AT Walker.

Artworks are selected from the six films, animated TV series, video games (published and unpublished). Since there are so many Star Wars properties out there, only some can come from each. It's a mixed bag in the sense that you might actually want to see more of the art from the movies instead. While the art is good, the material selection or organisation feels haphazard.

Some Amazon reviewers expected a sizeable amount of Ralph McQuarrie paintings but there are only a handful. Well, this is not The Art of Ralph McQuarrie.

The highlight of this book is its large format. The paintings at huge sizes have more impact and it's wonderful looking at them. When looking at the large paintings, I feel that traditional media is better at handling the fade from detail to non-detailed areas. This is probably which I prefer the traditional media.

In terms of write-up, there's foreword by Joe Johnston, preface by Ryan Church, introduction by Dough Chiang and an interview with Erik Tiemens. The artworks are captioned with name, source and media. There's no explanation of the concept behind the art though.

It's a good artbook overall, with great art but If you want more concept art and read about conceptualisation, I would still recommended the dedicated Art of Star Wars series. Some of the artworks in this book are in those books.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

Bought this as a gift to that classic Starwars fan friend.

Includes production art in all 6 movies not only the original trilogy. Would have been nice to have seen some more detailed art, and additional artist notes.
