5つ星のうち 5.0 Beautiful record of Robots evolution 2005/3/14
投稿者 goldfishy - (Amazon.com)
If you are a fan of the Art of Pixar books, Robots is easily on par. It has some of the most talented, amazing and awe-inspiring pre-vis work I have ever seen in an art book. The entire Robots world is contained inside these pages, its entire evolution plotted out with hundreds of drawings, paintings and sculptures.

My biggest problem with "Art of" books is when they show too much finished film imagery. Why would I buy a book with the same images from the movie? I want to know where the film came from, not where it ended up. Art of Robots shines in this respect. In only a few places will you find actual images of the finished CG renders. The rest are raw, traditional works of art that give valuable clues into the films development. I especially like the pages that show a painted character and the photographs used to reference their color and texture for the film. Great information on the film-making process at Blue Sky.

Despite the obvious shortcomings in the film's story, this book stands on its own as one of the better "Art of" books I have seen. A real honor for all the artists who poured their talent into this film.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Well Worth The Money 2008/8/14
投稿者 Parka - (Amazon.com)
This book can be easily be mistaken as another Pixar artbook. The quality and selection of art included is huge.

There's lots of character and set design. Interestingly, there are pages with characters and photos of materials they used for texturing their 3D models. Tips are given on how texturing is approached on the film.

You'll see characters evolve from pencil drawings to 3D models and clay. They have included a few photos of rendered models without colours and textures, which I thought was quite cool.

Hundreds of drawings fill the pages. You won't see a lot of movie stills, which is great, of course.

Blue Sky Studio takes you through the process of creating and art directing the design of the movie. It's well worth the money for any artbook collectors. There's plenty to read and look at.

(More pictures are available on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

I just had to have this in my collection. The character development and conceptual work is beautiful and if you're a fan of robots in generally, you'll love it. I also loved all the background designs. Just simply fantastic!
