Book Review: Tekkon Kinkreet Art Book: Background Sketches

Tekkon Kinkreet Art Book: Background Sketches - 02

鉄コン筋クリート ART BOOK クロside 基礎工事編 (Tekkon Kinkreet Art Book: Background Sketches)

There are two art books for Tekkon Kinkreet, the anime movie. This is one with the black cover, Tekkon Kinkreet Art Book: Background Sketches, or in Japanese 鉄コン筋クリート ART BOOK クロside 基礎工事編. The white cover edition is Tekkon Kinkreet Art Book: Background Paintings.

This art book features some of the most detailed architectural pencil sketches I've ever see. The sketches are grouped according to the areas where the stories take place. These are places like playgrounds, alleys, temples, rivers and the cityscape shown in the anime movie. There are no character designs in the book.

Actually in addition to sketches, this art book also features a few fully coloured illustrations as well. Some of these illustrations are the pencil sketches with colour painted over it. So there's the pencil sketch and colour rendering for comparison. Both look stunning with the immense amount of detail worked into them.

For extremely complicated drawings, there are close ups to look at the intricate line work.

This book is slightly cheaper than the one for background paintings because it's thinner. But still it's a magnificent work of accomplishment.

It's highly recommended to get this together with the other one on background paintings, Tekkon Kinkreet Art Book: Background Paintings.
