Book Review: Structura 2

Structura 2 - 01


This is a nice sequel to the first Structura art book. It's slightly thicker with more content.

This book focuses on concept art for sci-fi and environment. There are spaceships flying off from the many sleek locations conceived by Sparth. The environment paintings are mainly of desolate but exotic landscapes.

I notice he likes to use a lot of dark colours and black to make other colours stand out. Even for the cover, it's mostly black with blue tint as colour.

Some illustrations use a different but refreshing style. There are some experimental sketches done using Alchemy drawing software which look very much like manga style because of the outlines. Those look great. There are also some beautiful paintings created using just squares and rectangles.

The last chapter features 4 insightful examples complete with steps showing his process.

This is another delightful art book. Recommended to those who like of sci-fi and environment art.

Hi,

Hi,
Just to let you know that your link to both Structura: Art of Sparth and this one Structura 2, when going to amazon.co.uk is not correct.
It takes you to the book yes, but to a id that it's not available to buy. If you search amazon there is another id for the same paperback version but with the correct availability.
I still replaced the id and bought both with your tag, but you should definitely change it so that other ppl can buy with your tag too.

Hope it help,
Miguel
