Book Review: Turbulence: The Art of Storm Lion

Turbulence: The Art of Storm Lion

Here's the 128-page art book for Storm Lion, an art studio that's only one year old - no wonder I've never heard of them. They create art for video games, comic books and other art projects. From what I can see, it's mainly visual development or concept art.

While most of the artists featured are from Asia, their styles certainly doesn't give much clues to that. Most of the art featured are character designs but there are beautiful background paintings, 3D models, scenes among others. The quality of work is top notch, with lots of detail, nice textures, good colours. I'm impressed by the ideas, artistic style and technical execution.

It's a wonderful portfolio that hint at greater things to come.

You can check out more work at stormlion.com or follow them on www.facebook.com/stormlion.

Here's the list of artists included in the book:

  • Skan Srisuwan (Thailand)

The books are sold at Kinokuniya Singapore and Basheer Bookshop (Singapore) at the moment. I don't think Kino SG ships overseas.

They should be available in other parts of Asia soon.

Outside of Asia, they will be debuting at San Diego Comic Con 2010 in July.
