My only gripe in this book is that the structuring is kinda messed up and confusing, since the book mixes up the art section with the script.
|Length: 0:39 Mins|
Major characters in the book have their own biography pages, providing a little background for readers, like me, who didn't read the original comic book series. That was helpful.
Conceptual art was plentiful and are accompanied by the movie script. Short captions by artists explained how the art was created to fit into the vision of GdT. This book's main subject is most probably artistic direction with function. From the captions, every thing drawn has form, function and purpose. Here's a little quote from GdT:
"Let me make something abundantly clear --- in case you've been on Mars --- NO RED!!! --- Except for Hellboy or the atmospheres that are intimate/related to him: BROOM, LIZ, GRIGORY, and/or colors in WWII. - GdT"
This book was heavy on character design, set design, movie story boards and props design. Movie frame stills were hard to find.
For Hellboy fans, getting this book is a no brainer.
(More pictures are available on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
The contents were good, they cover everything, I was looking on the internet over and over for images of the hell gate and I couldn't find them anywhere.
It has well-done production details, if you like those kind of information.
It's also a perfect companion for the movie.
