Sparth (aka Nicolas Bouvier) is an amazing concept designer and illustrator with an impressive portfolio. You might have been awed by some of the paintings he post on his blog. Now with this book, you can enjoy his work easier.
This book features his concept art and matte paintings. Some of the projects included are, just to name a few, Prince of Persia - Warrior Within (2004), Assassin's Creed (2007) and those not included are Alone in the Dark (2004) and Cold Fear (2005).
The theme is mainly futuristic science fiction, except the some he created for the game. There are quite a few cityscape paintings with flying ships. The worlds he created as just as imaginative as Star Wars. They are beautiful and believable. There's a good sense of space and the vastness for the environment painting that I really like.
This is a book I can easily recommend to sci-fi art lovers.
Das Buch ist klasse für angehende Conceptdesigner, sehr schön gemacht und mit eigener "Handschrift", imho weniger ein Ideengeberbuch, eher "wie hat er das gemacht um einen Effekt zu erzielen?, also seine Art Dinge zu visualisieren... Da kann man sich eine Menge abkucken, ich finde das Buch toll:-)
