5.0 out of 5 stars Features a lot of lesser known but great artists April 6 2010
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Length: 0:30 Mins
This is a 216-page paperback loaded with colourful illustrations from 100 artists, with each taking 2 pages. Depending on the size of the drawings, many are full page, each artist has around 5 pieces of art featured. I'm only able to recognise less than a handful of artists from the hundred.

You'll get to see a lot of talented but lesser known artists. The variety is incredible. Each artist has a short profile written in Japanese and English. Websites and email contact for the artists are also provided.

The quality of work showcased is top notch, with paintings from different style, genre and setting. You'll get to see designs from the simple schoolgirls to the intricate dresses. There aren't any nudity and not much girls in bikinis, nor will you see popular cult characters (maybe there are but I can't recognise them). For some, the backgrounds are as highly detailed as the character designs themselves. Many of the artwork have actually appeared on publications and online.

For anyone who likes Bishojo, this book features a selection of art that will not disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Nov. 18 2010
By M. Tschopp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just as the title, this book is beautiful. I didn't knew most of the artist, only the most known for other media (like Yasu, Nishimata, Vofan, Kei, Murata), so this book has showed me the most impressive works of digital art. Some where the classic moe style, and other where shocking in different aspects, some in colors, or in composition, or character design.
It offers about 3-6 works per artist, not much, but a lot of artist so it makes a great combo.

It also tells you the equipment and software they use, and their website and contact if you want to hire them or see more works. Most of them have a pixiv account, where I found even more beautiful works.

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST BUY IT !!!!! Jan. 29 2014
By Weikuang Wong - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Some people collect stamps, coins, baseball cards or comic books. I don't do that. Instead, I collect all the best art books. If you collect art books like I do I would say definitely buy this one. I have to say this is definitely one of the best I've seen. The artwork is just amazing. If I could give this more than 5 stars, I definitely would. This really is a "must have book"

This book doesn't teach you how to become a better artist. It just shows a collection of artwork from some of the best artists. I don't mind if an art book doesn't teach me any new techniques as long as the artwork in the book somehow inspires me to become a better artist. This book makes me want to practice harder so that someday I could be as good as these artists.

BUY THIS BOOK !!!!! TRUST ME YOU WILL LIKE IT !!!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Artbook March 8 2012
By qt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Has various artists that where unheard of previously for me, along with there bio, website, etc. The artwork it self is very nice, and cute. You get to learn a lot more about a lot of non mainstream artists. It was definetly worth the $40 I paid for this book. Like others have said I really wish we had a hard cover edition availible for this book. I would have happily paid a extra $20-$30 for this book for a hard cover.
