This title showcases the concept art that went into creating the video game Darkwatch. It demonstrates the process and development of the concepts, as well as the evolution of the intellectual property itself.
I was also impressed with how fast it was shipped.
There is talk of a new game being created but nothing 100% at this time.
While playing this game I fell in love with the artwork which has a unique blend of Western, Gothic and a touch of Victorian.
Packed with 175 pages you will see the early development of an almost Lucky Luke cartoon western to this more contemporary dark design.
The books structure is as follows conceptual sketches, rough art, final art, this is performed with every character and then moves into environments and vehicles.
There are no in game screen shots, no cg images only beautiful hand drawn and hand rendered artwork.
This is a great book for someone into building their skills in character development or just using this as a reference book.
It's a shame this game didn't get the attention it deserved, I am amazed this book was even available.
If you like the game you will love this book, if you are a 3D modeller you will use this as a great resource.
