Book Review: The Art of Steamboy - en_b - 02-11-2010 10:10 AM
This weeks Peek-a-Book is The Art of Steamboy, Katsuhiro Otomo's 2004 steampunk masterpiece. This book seemingly has all the background paintings and a lot of the preliminary sketches from the film, and I seriously mean, a lot. A shame there aren't many mechanical model sheets or sketches, because the Steamboy film had some really great mechanics.
(The one place I have seen the mechanicals, which are really cool, were in the little book that came with the deluxe DVD set). Still if you're a background artist or interested in background art or old Victorian England, this is a book you should definitely check out.
