This book is actually much better than I thought. Probably because I'm looking at them in full size instead of the small web images I found on the Internet.

It has a very satisfying thickness at 320 pages. The dust jacket is smooth, nice to touch, non-glossy over a soft cover. The paper stock is thick matte and the colour reproduction is wonderful.

Hundreds of artists have come together to contribute Street Fighter art for the book. As a result, the variety in terms of style is amazing. Some of the styles included are manga, realistic caricature, chibi, game art, vector and many other.

I've read of artists who blogged about their work being rejected. I can understand why because the quality of artwork in this book is very high.

UDON has also allowed artists to promote their work on their individual blogs. Over the past few months, I've seen a lot of artists blogging about their art and the book. It's really great to finally see the book in print.

This art book belongs to the you-can-enjoy-it-even-if-you're-not-a-Street-Fighter-fan category.

It's well worth every single cent I spent, and I'm not a Street Fighter fan.

I'm a big fan of the Street Fighter characters so I snapped this book up as soon as I saw it available. I had high hopes for the art and I was not disappointed. There are over 300 pictures of the Street Fighter crew in all sorts of styles. The many artists who contributed art provided pieces that range from powerful to passive, sexy to silly, highly detailed to sketchy. It's not going to be like having all the art done by UDON Studios but if you don't mind variety, this Tribute art book is well worth getting. Don't worry, the girls are well represented! :-)

First of all, this book exceeded my expectations. Not that my expectations were low, I just wasn't prepared for the caliber of artistic talent that this book contains. Although most of the works are fan art, many of the artists are professionals, including comic book artists, painters, anime artists, and graphic designers.

One of the first things I noticed upon skimming through the pages was the wide range of styles. Some of the art is incredibly realistic while others are cartoonish and funny. Whichever the style, every piece is incredible and uniquely its own.

Another nice touch is the occasional passage written by an artist. These passages usually involve the artist explaining his/her connection to Street Fighter and how the game and/or the art has influenced his/her life.

This book is a great gift for fans of the Street Fighter videogames. However, even someone unacquainted with SF can enjoy it. Hats off to Udon and the great artists that brought this book together. This will be on my coffee table for a while!

Some people collect stamps, coins, baseball cards or comic books. I don't do that. Instead, I collect all the best art books. If you collect art books like I do I would say definitely buy this one. The artwork is just amazing!!! If I could give this more than 5 stars, I definitely would. This really is a "must have book"

This book doesn't teach you how to become a better artist. It just shows a collection of artwork from some of the best artists. I don't mind if an art book doesn't teach me any new techniques as long as the artwork in the book somehow inspires me to become a better artist. This book makes me want to practice harder so that someday I could be as good as these artists.

I would recommend this book to anyone reading this review. I also own almost all the other Udon Entertainment art books and I would like to take the time to recommend them all. In my opinion Udon is just the best of the best. I don't work for them. I don't get paid by them. I'm just a fan of their art books.

I'm a Street Fighter nut, and I love what UDON has done with the property. I've bought their other Street Fighter books so this was a no-brainer for me. But I was pleasantly surprised to find myself REALLY enjoying this book. The art in this collection is from professionals and fans alike. Variation is the name of the game. Every art style imaginable is present here. And even the most obscure characters are represented, and the obscure characters are my favorites so I very much appreciated that. People who don't even know Street Fighter can't seem to put this book down.
As for the book itself, it is as high quality as high quality can be. Nice, thick paper. Strong binding. A great slipcover(featuring amazing cover art to boot).
Bottom line: If you're a Street Fighter fan, buy this. If you're a fan of art, buy this. If you're neither, what the hell are you doing reading this review?

Few video game franchises have both the history and relevance of Street Fighter today. It's truly timeless, with so many incarnation sparking so many different emotions for so many different people.

This book captures that feeling perfectly. It's a blend of gorgeous artwork and raw emotion. Some of the artists clearly have a passion for Street Fighter and most have very strong nostalgia for the series.

This is perfect for anyone's library or coffee table. And if you're any kind of Street Fighter fan, you owe it to yourself to snag a copy.
