Book Review: The Art of Splatoon

The Art of Splatoon - 01


This is an excellent video game art companion for the game.

It's a large 320-page hardcover that's filled with wonderful eye candy art.

Collected within are the concept art for the characters, weapons, gear, props, clothes, graffiti, mystery files, locations, UI design, comics and selected postings from their Twitter and Tumblr pages.

In terms of styles, there are sketches as well as full coloured artworks. My favourites are those drawn with the texture crayon or paint style. That's the style of the cover art. It's so nice and very different from the usual digital paintings.

The only downside would probably the location art. They are rather small and limited in amount compared other other content.

There's just so much to see in the book. I'm pretty sure fans of the game will be thrilled. It's well worth the money.

The Art of Splatoon is available at Amazon (US | CA | UK | DE | FR | IT | ES | JP | CN) and Book Depository
