5 stars? Shoot, I'd give it 1'000'000 stars if Amazon permitted! A million stars, no diggity, no doubt.
It shows not only a much wider range of covers than I'd thought it would but also manages to capture a lot of his growth as an artist. From the days when he was a bit more generic up until he began to showcase his distinctive and beautiful "good girl" technique.
My favorite part of AH is that he manages to convey so much with so little. A lot of artists tend to pack in the detail and while they too tend to have some great work, I'm always amazed by Adam's ability to capture moods and gesture with a few well-placed lines.
I have only one complaint and I know that it's invalid. It's not enough! I need more, lol. I realize that this book covers his cover work on the DC universe but I want to see all of it. No doubt we'd end up with a book that would be large enough to ground a 757 and every UPS man would rue the day he was born but oh, I would live in the shadow of their hatred for such a volume.
For anyone into comics, Pin-ups, Adam Hughes or just great art; I sincerely recommend this book, even if you're just thinking it might be worth taking a look at, it is, take a look!
In comparison of this book and other art books, this one still stands as the best art book hands down! After all the artbooks I looked into, I always turn myself to Cover Run, because of such quality he put in his work. Even after looking into Jim Lee's Icons or Alex Ross's Mythology, I STILL go back to looking at the pretty pictures Adam put in Cover Run.
Great book. A lot of fun. Beautiful art. Great writing. Worth every cent!
The text is fun to read and feels like a good friend is sitting next to you showing his portfolio... self-effacing about what is obviously extremely talented work.
The only thing that bugs me is that I wished he had expanded on techniques. He would briefly discuss some of the digital techniques he discovered while working....which only tantalized us fellow artists that work in a digital environment. Maybe he will publish a book on Photoshop painting techniques...we can only hope.
