Item description for In the Future...: Entertainment Design at Art Center College of Design by Jonathan Bach...

In The Future... showcases the first student work created in the new Entertainment Design program at the prestigious Art Center College of Design. Entertainment design requires strong industrial design, architectural and illustration skills, as the designers create characters, environments, vehicles and props. Examples of class work from such courses as Originality in Design, Character Design, Architectural Design, Visual Development and Color Theory are presented. This stunning collection of sketches, renderings, and models created by the inaugural class of entertainment design students is a "must-have" for any fan of entertainment design and for those who have enjoyed the first Art Center student book, The Skillful Huntsman.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about In the Future...: Entertainment Design at Art Center College of Design?

Excellent insight on Entertainment design Work   Jul 25, 2008
Awesome illustrations, digital and traditional. A very good book with detailed artwork done by students of Art Center Pasadena Ca. Every page is packed with creative talent applied to many different situations. I would highly recommend this book as well as many others coming out of the Design Studio Press!
Stdent work after all...  Oct 18, 2007
This book sis exactly what it aspires to be, a collection of class exercises by talented students at the Art Center in Pasadena. The artwork and layout are competent and anybody looking for a benchmark or an achievable target for their own artwork and technique could benefit form this "syllabus". But it does lack a measure of originality as one work looks pretty much like the next and the themes that give origin to the pieces are somewhat pretentious. It is a reflection of a school were undoubtedly students feed of each other's creativity and try to meet a look which is standard in the industry. The results are professional but cookie-cutter in the best of cases. Some works are a little undeveloped but may give a glimpse into the diversity of talents in a single group of students. I would use this book as a first approach or a teaching tool but not as something I want to get attached to.
Art & Illustrations by the Great Artists & Designers of Tomorrow  Oct 16, 2007
"In the Future" is a great follow-up/companion piece to Design Studio Press' previous student publication "The Skillful Huntsman." Where as "Huntsman," followed the process of three students, "Future," documents the work of an entire group of students. There is a wide variety of work and exploration - from pencil/graphite, to markers, experimental media, digital, etc. Many different approaches are shown and this is one of the few places where they are all collected together. The students show a great deal of promise and who knows what they will professionally accomplish in the future.
Great entertainment design work showing the entire process  Oct 13, 2007
The book represents the 'journey' of work from the entertainment major at Art Center College of Design. This includes the sketches and initial ideas, through final line drawings as well as finished color renderings. The chapters are broken up into the core classes that the major has to offer with brief descriptions by the teachers.

If you enjoyed the The Skillful Huntsman: Visual Development of a Grimm Tale at Art Center College of Design that was published by Design Studio Press, then I'd consider looking into this book. Although the content has changed, the format will be familiar.

If you're looking for a glimpse at what the major and field of entertainment design have to offer, this is the book for you. Especially for aspiring students in the field (primarily for games and film). I'm still blown away by the breadth and depth of work these students have created.

I'm not sure what the other reviewer was hoping to find that s/he wasn't satisfied with, but there are plenty of color illustrations in this book...
Where's the Beef ?  Oct 4, 2007
I bought this book looking for inspiration for my own artistic efforts. What I got was a hodgepodge of scribilled sketches. This book contains VERY FEW COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS. What few there are all use very dark background colors that blend with the subject matter. So much so that it is difficult to distinguish the subject from the background. My one star rating was a generous one.
