This is the artbook for Soul Calibur V.
It collects the character designs, profiles, background art, interviews and commentary for the fighting game.
The character designs are painted illustrations and sketches. They look great. The costumes is like old school fantasy style with the armor and swords. They are detailed and varied.
The background art are mainly screenshots from the game. There are also some illustrations and sketches. They look great as well. Could be printed bigger because they are quite detailed.
Nice companion for the game. Recommended if you like character design or the game.
If you buy from the links, I get a little commission that helps me get more books to feature.
