Item description for Pictoplasma: The Character Encyclopaedia by Lars Denicke...

From the worlds of drawing, graphic design and painting, Pictoplasma examines the latest tendencies in character design. Having closely coincided with the character design movement since 1999, Pictoplasma presents a new, incomparable collection of what has become the world's most popular visual language. Through playful sampling and visual remixing, these characters evade established pictorial norms, and confront the viewer directly and emotionally, regardless of cultural background. Focusing on the graphical roots of contemporary character culture, this volume examines the essential qualities that empower these reduced character depictions with an universal, anthropomorphic appeal. Over 360 pages feature the fresh and surprising work of over 250 international artists, designers and newcomers, including Ana Bagayan, Friends With You, Fons Schiedon, Akinori Oishi, Koralie, Klaus Haapaniemi, Eun-Ha Paek, Nicholas Deakin, and Gary Taxali, among others.Vast in scope and always at the forefront, The Character Encyclopaedia is a comprehensive guide to the most intriguing figures populating the character universe.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pictoplasma: The Character Encyclopaedia?

Nicely presented  Jun 20, 2008
Excellent value for money. Not all the designs in the book are fantastic, some quite below average. Still, many shine through and make this book truly worthy of any animator/character designers shelf.

I find these types of books indispensable when designing because of their unique views on motion, character and setting.
