Having own a few DreamWorks art books, I always wondered when their collaborative art book would be out. And it's finally out, as Moonshine.
49 artists from DreamWorks has their personal art featured. This includes art from character designers, visual development artists, production designers and art directors. You will see very familiar names like Nicolas Marlet, Nathan Fowkes, Dominique Louis, Chris Appelhans (typo error on contents page, guys!), Paul Lasaine and a whole lot more of talented artists.
The art is beautiful and varied, ranging from sketches to background paintings. I must point out that this book feels very different from your DreamWorks movie art books as there's no overlaying theme and only personal works are featured.
I do recognise some of their styles and is pleasantly surprised and delighted to find that Samuel Michlap has a few of his impressionist-style paintings inside. Also characters from Nicolas Marlet are easy to spot.
The good part about this book is you get to discover new artists, together with their websites and blogs which are listed in the index. So you can check out even more art online.
