Item description for Yoshitaka Amano by Yoshitaka Amano, Carlo McCormick & Rachel Kushner...

A superluminary in the world of Japanese manga, anime and video games, Yoshitaka Amano has recently turned to sumi-e, a 700-year-old practice of monochrome ink painting that, until now, has had a rigid set of leitmotifs. Not so in Amano's contemporary hands, which pinpoint body parts from the world of Princess Mononoke and Akira and render them in wordless detail.

Reviews - What do customers think about Yoshitaka Amano?

Eyes  Jun 19, 2006
This is mostly a collection of studies of eyes done by Amano using brush and ink. I was personally interested because I am trying to teach myself sumie style painting and I'm fan of all of Amano's work. This book is not great if you just want to see a variety of colorful pretty pictures, for that try "The Complete Prints" but if you are interested in sumie then this book offers a some cool ideas on how it can be implemented.
very cool sketch book  Feb 21, 2006
When I first got this book I was a little pissed. I spent fifty-something bucks on a bunch of paintings of eyes.

Then, as I read it through a second time, it actually had some great value to me as an artist. There are tons of studies of different characters, body parts, and other artwork. I love Amano's work and it's great to see where he gets started.

If you're looking for a book of finished artwork, you want the cheaper book of prints. But if you're an artist or game designer like me, this book can be a good addition to your character design references.
