Book Review: THE ARK Lineage II ILLUSTRATIONS -リネージュ2 設定画集

THE ARK Lineage II ILLUSTRATIONS -リネージュ2 設定画集

Here's the art book for Lineage II (official site | wiki), a Korean MMORPG for the PC.

This 128-page paperback art book contains the game character designs and different races, location drawings, summons, creatures and bosses. There are no sketches except for the environment drawings, and no screenshots. The book doesn't have much text as well.

The character designs are pretty cool. You can see all sorts of interesting costume designs. They are all exquisitely designed loaded with tons of details. It looks like they are all digitally painted and the Korean style is very strong. Unfortunately, the artists are not captioned. There are a few pages on the weapons and armour they hold, laid out side by side.

I think the best part is probably the creature and boss art. Some of them look pretty epic. There are both line art and the finished painted version.

THE ARK Lineage II ILLUSTRATIONS -リネージュ2 設定画集 is a book for fantasy art lovers.
