This is a paperback without a dust jacket and there are 296 pages. The paper is slightly thinner than SFT but doesn't affect the art book in anyway. The colour reproduction is still brilliant.
With so many artists contributing, the variety of style is amazing, of course. Some of the styles included are manga, caricature, 3D, chibi, game art, vector and many others. There's even a very sexy sculpted model of Morrigan.
Not just style, some of the ideas and concepts are really fun. There are illustrations of Darkstalkers when they are old but still fighting, Baby Bonnie Hood with mecha enhancements, Transformers-style and other wacky stuff. Looks like everyone spent a lot of time on their work.
Every illustration is captioned with the artists and their websites, which opens up more avenues for exploration if you like the artist's work you see.
It's another great tribute, highly recommended to character designers, fantasy art and Darkstalkers lovers.
I wonder what tribute Udon will come up with next.

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 teens and adults but not children. 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.
instead, I'll tell you that the quality is superb, the artwork is second to none, and that this is one book you can't do without.
I couldn't recommend anything higher, I'm pleased with this book on nearly every level. I can't believe it only cost [...] for this, I would expect to pay
about 60 or more at a store or something.... The quality and quantity is just that good.
5 stars, supremely well done book. A must have for fans and non-fans alike.

The art is 5/5 however, the book portion is 1/5. I bought this for a friend who's an artist and the binding disintegrated from the pages in the thirty minutes he was handling it.Published on August 24, 2013 by Kenneth Loeu
Fantastic art done by leading artists in their fields. Great companion to street fighter tribute. A penny that won't be wasted. Recommend for quick buy.Published on February 23, 2013 by Andrew Benjamin Wilhelm

I bought this book thinking that there would be more artists that I knew in this book. I only knew a few and so many were the anime artists, I didn't care for it. Read morePublished on September 22, 2010 by Welbourne F. Bronaugh III
