Book Review: The Art of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

The Art of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

This art book is noticeably better that the already good The Art of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

This time round, even more details are added to the concept art. Most of the sketches are now coloured. As usual, the pages are filled to the brim with character designs, environment paintings, storyboards, sculptures and ships. All drawings are captioned by the individual artists on the idea they are trying to bring across.

In some ways, the character designs and sketches look better on book than in the movie. The environment paintings are just epic.

Included also, at the back of the book, is the full script for the movie.

This book is highly recommended to sci-fi artists, concept artists and of course Star Wars fans.

Special thanks to Kelvin Chan for providing the book for this short review.

I've had this book for a long

I've had this book for a long time too; and out of my pretty-big art book collection, it remains the top favorite. (of course, that might be slightly biased by a big SW fan here. :> )

The quality of the presentation + art is unbelievable. Seeing the different versions of Jango Fett/Dooku was the best part imo.
