Looking at The Art of the Incredibles 2 reminds me of the first few Pixar artbooks that I've reviewed. It's so good to seen the inclusion of more hand drawn and concept art rather than finalised film stills.
This 168-page book is filled with sketches, storyboards, character and environment designs, and the occasional commentary. There's a good mix of traditional and digital artworks. The drawings, the designs are so good.
I love the character designs. There's always this very caricatured look to the characters in the Incredibles universe. It's great to see Parr family again. There's also a whole lot of other character designs, such as for the other superheroes, the other people, the non-Supers. I like the comic look and feel to the characters. After all, these designs are for an animated film.
The environment designs look good as well. Once again, lots of hand-drawn art mixed with digital paintings. There are interiors as well as exteriors. It also goes to show that when a concept works, it doesn't really matter whether it was drawn with pencil or with digital ink.
This is an, pardon the pun, incredible companion artbook to the film. Fans of the film and those who like animation artbooks should enjoy it.
