Das Buch ist insgesamt sehr schön gestaltet und lässt die große Kreativität und das biologische Expertenwissen der Künstlerin erkennen; z.B. indem die Darstellungen oft auch durch Innenansichten der Tiere ergänzt werden. Was ich ein wenig schade finde ist, dass angesichts mancher beschriebener - und mir bis dahin völlig unbekannter Arten aus dem Star Wars Universe - andere Arten aus den Filmen und Spielen jedoch völlig unerwähnt bleiben; so hätte ich mir z.B. die Beschreibung eines Acklay gewünscht und stattdessen gerne auf die Abschnitte mit den intergalaktischen Tierhändlern oder den Senatoren mit ihren Haustieren verzichtet. Und ich hätte gerne mehr über die fliegenden Insekten gelesen, die in den Jedi Knight-Spielen ziemlich weit verbreitet vorkamen und recht lästig werden konnten. Wenn m.E. auch nicht ganz vollständig: insgesamt aber ein sehr schönes und empfehlenswertes Buch!

For quite some time I can call myself an owner of this amazing and well thought out book (paperback) and I finally decided to write a little review.

The artbook by Terryl Whitlach and Bob Carrau is, as the name suggests a guide to the wildlife of the Star Wars universe. Both covers, hardcover
and paperback are texture-pressed with a nice scale pattern. Although I am not really a fan of paperbacks it has a really nice touch thanks to
the dewback hide texture. The chapters are organized by planets and have a short introduction describing the ecosystem and its characteristics.
The illustrations range from hand-drawn penciled sketches to fully coloured pictures using colour markers.

The various creatures are presented in many situations such as hunting, breeding or even in captivity sold by humans and/or other humanoid species.
Who did not want to know what a living Krayt Dragon to whom this huge skeleton, C-3PO found in the desert of Tatooine belongs, would look like.
Or that the trees on Dagobah form spider-like spores which eat like animals until they transform into huge trees.

I was always, as far as I can remember, fascinated by nature and tried to watch every documentary I could find on TV, additionally I am a great
Star Wars fan. This book is not only a must-have for Star Wars fans, who want to know more about the universe, but also a great guide/reference
for artists and fans of conceptual designs.

All in all it is one of the greatest books in my collection and it is always a joy to sit back and look at such an amazing piece of work.
Every artbook collection is incomplete without it and for those who are still in doubt: GO GET IT.

This hardcover is actually texture-pressed with scale patterns from a creature I can't identify. It has a nice touch.

This is a field guide to the wildlife from the Star Wars planets. It's organised by planets and the included ones are Tatooine, Hoth, Dagobah, Naboo, Bespin, Endor, Yavin 4 and Coruscant. There's a short introduction describing each ecosystem ' fiery, freezing, vaporous, etc.

The illustrations are sketches drawn with pencils and colour markers, supposedly by a zoologist in the field, but is actually none other than Terryl Whitlatch. They are all wonderfully detailed showing the creatures in their natural habitat, be it hunting, caring for their young, chilling out, or even on sale at some market on Coruscant. The attention to skin textures is very nice. You can almost get a feel just by looking. Beautiful colours also.

Besides the paintings are field notes filling in on information like feeding patterns, mating habits, herding instincts and defensive mechanisms of these fascinating beings.

I didn't know that the giant space slug is really that huge at 900 metres until I looked up the size of a blue whale for comparison, which is 33 metres. The space slugs gets nutrients from asteroids and you can see how the intestines work. Some of the designs you'll see are inspired by Earth animals. The Opee Sea Killer has characteristics from lobster (shell), frog (long sticky tongue), anglerfish (that glowing forehead tip) and the arowana (breeding little babies in the mouth).

Some of the designs might look a bit far fetch but hey, this is Star Wars, this is science fiction. I guess anything goes but many are believable for the most part, in art and concept.

This is a very good book for all fans of Star Wars and animal art.

Großer Bildband mit wenig Texten. Für optische Typen hervorragend geeignet. Bietet ein Set an Ideen, die allesamt auf biologische Korrektheit Wert legen und für die Gestaltung von Monstern sehr nützlich sind.
