Book Review: 幻想水滸伝ティアクライス 公式イラスト&設定資料集 (Genso Suikoden Tierkreis Official Illustrations and Artworks)

幻想水滸伝ティアクライス 公式イラスト&設定資料集 (Genso Suikoden Tierkreis Official Illustrations and Artworks)


Here's another art book for Genso Suikoden Tierkreis, the other being the character guide.

This 296-page paperback book is filled with concept art for the characters, backgrounds, some monsters, storyboards, weapons and promotional art.

The background designs are nice but a bit too sketchy. The character designs are great and there are lots of them (at least 108), in colour and sketches. The variety is great and the costume designs are pretty interesting. The game itself is fantasy based so there are non-human characters as well. The style of art is of typical Japanese manga. There are also plenty of scribbled notes and artist commentary, which are all in Japanese.

There are only a couple of pages on the monsters, weapons and other stuff since the main bulk is on the characters. The designs for the monsters and weapons are pretty cool though.

Fans of the game and character designers should enjoy this book.

This game does have great character designs. If you bought the cd, there's a small booklet containing artworks, but this official artbook will beat that little booklet indefinitely.
