Book Review: Dofus Artbook Session 1

Book Review: Dofus Artbook Session 1

Here's the first art book to the popular French MMORPG, Dofus (wikipedia). It's a 144-page hardcover book.

The book is mostly about character design, with plenty of pencil sketches. I've got to say that the pencil sketches look better than the characters splash art that takes a whole page, as least for the section on main characters. The in-game screenshots of the characters are nicer but printed too small.

The art for the side characters, enemies and non-playable characters are significantly better. The style is stylised and cartoon-like with manga-style colouring. The creature designs are cute and attractive.

The section on the environment consists of small in-game screenshots and concept sketches. The screenshots are nice but, again, printed too small. The sketches look scarce compared to the amount of detail actually rendered for the backgrounds in the game.

The last few pages is a gallery with contributions from Dofus artists as well as fans.

It's a nice art book with some caveats.
