The 208-page hardcover book is split into three parts covering the characters & prop designs, environment, and finally colour & effects as they are used in the shows.
The highlight of the book is of course the character designs for the Transformers Autobots and Decepticons. They take up half the book. The designs are really cool. There are some similarities with the other shows or movies that ran before it, but it has its own unique artistic style. Perhaps because the characters are to be animated, they appear to be quite organic in design, with more curves going on. You won't mistake them for other robot franchises. Fans will love this section.
There are plenty of characters to look at. And the book's quite big so they are printed big too. There are nice close ups on different body parts, props and relic designs. Transformation sequence art for several characters are included but unfortunately they are printed a bit too small.
The environment background art are beautiful but I felt that many pieces can be quite dark making it difficult to see the details or maybe that's to hide the details. This would be the weak part of the book.
The last part covers the art direction, talking specifically about the colours and effects.
Throughout the book, there are some lengthy and insightful interviews at the end of chapters.Read more ›
"Transformers: Prime" was a grand reinterpretation of the ongoing "Transformers" mythos, using computer graphic animation. Over three seasons and a direct to video movie finale, "Prime" gave giant robot fans and lovers of animation an exciting adventure cartoon with engaging stories and memorable characters. It also created its own distinctive vision of the decades old war between "the peace loving Autobots" and "the brutal Decepticons." "The Art of Prime" is a lavish showcase of the creation of that vision, brought to animated life by a band of talented people from around the world, an earth-born "Team Prime.Read more ›
Showcasing just abt everything from the 'bots to the locales of Cybertron to special effects used. Some are indeed way to dark (unless that's how the original art is) could use some lightening up.
This vol is unwieldy, harder fit into your regular shelves (or if your into protective covering) Think publisher wise could downsize it a little like they have for War on Cybertron art books?
There is also useful information for both transformers fans and for artists about their process of creating the characters, the setting, the mood, etc.
