Reviews - What do customers think about Quantumscapes: The Art of Stephan Martiniere?
Nice book, but ... Jul 29, 2008
This is a nice slick looking book, but everyhing has the same look to it. Ambiguous shapes and colors in space. I wish there was more insight into the creation of each piece, such as programs used, image size, etc. Otherwise a nice book overall.
Book covers, video game art, and creature design collection Apr 26, 2008
Stephan Martiniere is in demand for his bookcovers, character design and work in motion pictures. In this edition we get an expanded look at his creative process, as he shows us step by step how he works on a bookcover. He also gives us several alterate covers, and some explaination of why they were not choosen. I reccomend this book as well as his other book.
Very nice. Jun 26, 2007
Quantumscapes, Martiniere's second book, is quite good. It has a good variety of artwork, from sci fi book covers to concept art for heaven. Images are clear and rich. The book itself is large, and is printed great quality paper. Binding is very good.
A great book. I recommend it over Quantum Dreams.
Good book but could be better Apr 3, 2007
Not as good as the previous collection from Stephan Martiniere (Quantum Dreams) because there was too many sketches & and not more finished paintings. Also some paintings deserved to be reproduced in a bigger format. The comments by Stephan Martiniere are very interesting though and I especially like the last chapter showing the various steps he went through to paint the image on the cover.
Excelente Feb 26, 2007
Muy bueno y mejorando al anterior, Quantum Dreams, además de paisajes, personajes, bocetos y una muestra del trabajo paso a paso.
