From the Back Cover

A richly illustrated collection of the newest and most exciting talent in sci-fi art and illustration.

SCI-FI ART NOW brings together for the first time the finest, freshest, and most exciting talents in the world of sci-fi illustration. Artists from around the world-from China and Singapore to the United States and Europe-are represented in this volume, which focuses on the latest and most imaginative work being produced today.

This book brings to light the most groundbreaking and talked about sci-fi art, ranging in media from comic books, movies, and TV programs to art, posters, toys, literature, collectibles, board games and video games. SCI-FI ART NOW is a comprehensive compilation that reveals fascinating background information, anecdotes, ideas, and inspirations relied on by the crème de la crème of contemporary science fiction painters, illustrators, and creators (whether established professionals such as Brett Norton, Liam Sharp, Paul McCaffrey, Klaus Hutter, and John Picacio, or brave new talents forging into the future).

By analyzing how technique, tools, materials and media are applied to popular sub-genres such Sirens of Sci-Fi, Spacecraft and Astronauts, Aliens and Alien Worlds, Radical Robots, Incredible Cities, Future War, and Steampunk, each chapter illustrates the astounding artistry and diverse imagination behind this perennially popular genre. Crammed full of exquisite art from around the world and fascinating insights from the artists and creators, SCI-FI ART NOW is perfect for the many fans of science fiction.

Format: Hardcover
Length: 1:24 Mins
Sci-Fi Art Now features a cool gallery of sci-fi art from various artists. There are seven chapters that covers robots, aliens, spaceships, cities, warfare, space girls and steampunk. The quality of art is great, and the variety is good, ranging from manga style to 3D modeling to paintings. The scenes and ideas are interesting and comes with a short description from the artists.

Nice book for fans of sci-fi art.

Do not mistake the other book Sci-Fi Art: A Graphic History as being part of the series. The other book covers more on the history of sci-fi art.

This book is published by two publishers, namely Harper Design and Ilex. The prices for the books are different. They have different cover art - Ilex has a flying gorilla and Harper Design has a yellow space alien girl. Both are 128-page hardcover.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am more than happy with the quality of this book. The pictures are extremely detailed and the quality is superb. There is a great collection of varying artists with the chapters broken down between different subject matter you might find in Sci-Fi art. The collection of actual art though could have been somewhat better. Meaning there are some pieces featured, that seem rather plain. However, with this said I know everyone has their own ideas and opinions. Overall great book.
