Book Description

May 15 2012 The Art of
Brave is Pixar's thirteenth feature film, but it marks two big firsts for the award-winning animation studio. It's Pixar's first feature film driven by a female lead and its first set in an ancient historical period. Against a backdrop of castles, forests, and highlands, Brave follows the fiery Merida as she clashes with the duty of her royal life and embarks on a journey through the rugged landscape of the dark ages of Scotland. At once epic and intimate, the latest Pixar masterpiece weaves a story of magic, danger, and adventure and the fierce bonds of family.
Featuring behind-the-scenes interviews with the film's many artists and filmmakers, The Art of Brave showcases the gorgeous concept art that went into the making of this movie, including color scripts, storyboards, character studies, environment art, sculpts, and more. A Foreword by Brenda Chapman and Mark Andrews, the film's directors, and a preface by Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter shed light on the creation of this landmark film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be Brave and Buy It! Jan. 3 2013
By keefsey
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
These are my favorite types of books. I have always been interested in concept art, and grab every 'art of' book I see. Especially, when the beautiful work of Disney and Pixar are involved.

This volume contains 160 pages of character concept sketches, poses, storyboards, environmental art, weapons, in all forms of media from pencil right up to digital. It also takes you into the minds of the creators and shows you their thought process on how this type of movie is made.

The book is of high quality with nice thick stock paper and is filled with both black and white pictures as well as full color.

Highly recommended for Disney/Pixar fans, Brave fans, and fans of conceptual art.

I doubt you will be disappointed.

Je l'aime beaucoup, autant que le contenu est excellent pour le sujet couvert, que la qualité de la facture du livre qui est à des années-lumière des livres à couverture souple et papier de moindre qualité du type "paperback".



I love it, very nice inside and out, it is a long time I saw a book made with that all over quality so far away from those paperback. It is a book for animation and book lovers.
