The book is rich with monsters, character, armor and weapon designs. It also has many descriptions of the MH world, including and not limited to information on items, monsters, armors, and villagers. Tons of sketches, a nice amount of completed illustrations and a black-and-white sketch section at the back. They even include game graphics and some cute, silly MH-based illustrations.

It is anime-style drawing--I say this because I saw artbooks be downrated just because the viewer didn't like the drawing style, which I find illogical.

A great reference book for creatures, weapons, and armor.

Format: Paperback
The art content is absolutely awesome. In that regard, it's a clear five star candidate.

However, Udon have been a bit sloppy on the editorial side of localizing the book. It's nothing that will diminish how much enjoyment you can get out of the book, but the oversights are readily apparent. For example, a description box on a page early in the book carries text that does not correlate to the pictures on the page. Indeed, the very same text turns up in a latter part of the book, fitting the page perfectly. Throughout the book, there are small signs of sloppiness, such as spelling errors or consistently setting the opening parenthesis with a large amount of obliqueness, despite the text body, the content of the parentheses and the closing parenthesis being roman.

It is a bit of a miracle how these kinds of things could go unnoticed. The impression is that there was no proofreading at all. Overall, it is sad because the book as a whole is amazing but the nature of the shortcomings makes it hard not to notice them every time. (or to wonder what artist comment would have belonged on that page with the mismatched text box)

Although I was told 10 different release dates for this book, when it finally came I was not disappointed. The art is first class all the way, and you get to see the thought process that went into creating every aspect of the Monster Hunter games. It is a great reference for character and creature design, and I highly recommend it for any aspiring fantasy artists out there. Five stars all the way for this product.

I just received this book today 3/13/2012 and was surprised at how big (thick) that this book is. This book is extremely detailed in design and style of weapons,armour, creatures,and future/fantasy people.This book takes awhile to get through and once you do, you'll take a break and then go through it again just to make sure that you saw everything...Incredible book.

At least I think this is. I tried to pick this up last year, and couldn't find one in stock. But with the release of illustrations 2 now out I figured I'd check and here it is!

Very nice over all. Art is just amazing, and I loved all the little bits of information the artists included.

Lots of characters with beautiful concept, I should say not only a lot, but rather a HUGE collection of them. Very useful for those who likes to have a reference while sketching some new characters with various attributes. And the book is really thick, it's really worth they money we spend in.
