Book Review: Udon's Art of Capcom

Book Review: Udon's Art of Capcom

Udon's Art of Capcom is Udon's tribute to Capcom to signify the five years of they have been working together.

This book isn't just about Street Fighter, although it takes up the main bulk of the book. It also contains art for Darkstalkers, Rival School, World of Capcom and Capcom Fighting Evolution. Many of these are full page colour illustrations.

The artistic style is mainly Japanese manga so I guess most of the artists are the comic artists. I've read other reviewers say that some of the images have appeared from the comic books, so there might be some repetition. I don't have the comics so I can't comment on that. Let's just say that the art is still great.

For Fighting Evolution, many comic panels for character endings are included.

Right at the end are two tutorials on how two of the illustrations are created, one being the cover art. The tutorials are from Arnold Tsang and Omar Dogan.

This is a recommended book to fans of Udon and character designers.
