- Full Description
The humble sketch is the foundation of great art, where thoughts and concepts first come to life as an image—but rarely are sketches celebrated like they deserve to be for their power to explore, inspire, and entertain. Here fifty talented traditional and digital artists, ranging from industry legends to talented up-and-comers, share their sketches and reveal the ideas, inspirations, and techniques behind their creative processes. From doodles of robots and aliens to concept designs for spaceships, speculative life-forms, and invented worlds. Continuing the high-quality format of 3dtotal Publishing's previous successes, Sketching from the Imagination: An Insight into Creative Drawing and Sketching from the Imagination: Fantasy, this new title is dedicated to fantasy's sibling genre, sci-fi, in all its forms. Sketching from the Imagination: Sci-fi presents a handpicked collection of the best sketches and drawings by sci-fi artists from across the globe—each with their own unique style and approach to the genre.
Additional contributors include Carlos Huante, Brynn Metheney, Brad Wright. These artists are working in software, gaming, television, concept art, animation, creature design, storyboards, character modeling and sculpting.
I'm not an artist, but I like this series simply from the point of view of an art fan. It is profusely illustrated, the variety of work is excellent and the quality is very high. This is certainly as good as, if not superior to, many convention sketchbooks, with the same high quality artwork but you get commentary too. 312 pages of it!
Each artist presents an impressive showcase of images from their sketchbooks, accompanied by their own enlightening commentary, and page upon page of useful tips, techniques, creative insights, and invaluable advice for getting your ideas out of your brain and onto the page. Sketching from the Imagination: Sci-fi is not only a must-have resource for any concept designer's shelf, but a stunning compilation of drawings that will delight sci-fi fans and any admirer of beautiful artwork.
