A lot of games these days have pretty weird characters. BioShock is one of them with its own kind of weirdness, especially the characters.
This is a large 184-page hardcover concept artbook published by Dark Horse.
The concept art features the environment, characters, weapons and other props such as propaganda posters. I like the environment art for the floating city of Columbia. It's beautiful yet mysterious.
There's plenty of character art, that of Elizabeth, Booker, Songbird and many of the grotesque and mechanical enemies, Heavy Hitters. It makes you wonder about the twisted minds of those in Columbia who created these monstrous beings. They have included quite a bit of discarded art that couldn't make it to the game as well.
The art is accompanied by some commentary and annotated handwritten text. No much. If you've not played the game, it's quite impossible to know what the game is about by looking at the art.
It's a nice companion video game artbook, but overall, I felt the art is not as refine as Deco Devolution: The Art of BioShock 2, but this is also sort of a different title.
A Kindle edition for this is also available. You can check out the preview pages on Amazon.
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
For a page by page look at The Art of BioShock Infinite book you can watch my video review on YouTube. Channel is NiZZULiVE.
If you're interested to see the design iteration process for many of the characters/creatures in this game this is a great book. You'll get a good look at a lot of designs that never made into the game, as well as the evolution of some of the concepts that did make it into the game.
I was hoping to use this book as a sort of visual reference guide for making fan art, basically I was hoping it would be like a complete visual catalogue of everything as it appeared in the actual game. If you're thinking the same you may want to adjust your expectations a little but it's still a great book for those who like art/illustration and are a fan of this game. To be clear, there are some finalized ideas in here, but the vast majority are quickly drawn concepts
