Tintin's a motion capture CG film, directed by Steven Spielberg, and produced by Peter Jackson and Kathleen Kennedy.
In this book, there are lots to read about the making of the film, like how they capture swimming, walking on sand, animate Snowy, etc. Captain Haddock was actually performed by Andy Serkis, the King Kong/Gollum guy.
The transformation of Herge's characters to 3D is quite stunning. They are modeled by Weta and the details are amazing. They have gotten the skin textures spot on, and sometimes it can be a bit creepy to look at the caricatured version.
Much of the art is actually on trying to find the look for the film. There are some earlier concept art where specific panels of Herge's comics are painted over with a realistic style, using the same composition. Even the shark submarine and checkered rocket were re-imagined with more photo-realism.
The environment art are on the antique market, Tintin's apartment, Haddock's ship, the ocean, the desert and many other locations. The art is very distinctly digital painting, I'm not sure if I like the style here. There's still the charm of comics that's very difficult to translate across medium.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
My one other gripe is that there isn't much "art" to be found, despite the book's title. There is a lot of imagery, but it's mostly (1) snippets from the finished movie; (2) performance capture before-and-after comparisons; and (3) computer-generated digital models. If you are looking for conceptual artwork, design sketches, etc. then you will find yourself disappointed.
Still, the book does have a great deal of information about the making of the movie, in particular about the aforementioned motion capture that the filmmakers used to capture the actors' performances. I would recommend this book if you can find it cheap.
