By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 12 2009
Format: Paperback
Length: 0:20 Mins
This book is the portfolio of students who attended course at the Art Center College of Design.

It's an impressive showcase of work from the students. The art pieces are selected from the curriculum of the art course.

Specifically, the art in this book are categorized into 5 areas: Character, Color Theory, Architecture, Visual Development and Originality. All the designs and paintings are captioned by their creator to explain the concept behind.

This book is probably to promote the students to studio headhunters and to prospective students. It shouldn't be too hard achieve that, looking at the quality of talent here.

There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.

Art & Illustrations by the Great Artists & Designers of Tomorrow Oct. 16 2007
By Guy Montag - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"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.

By WN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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!

Great entertainment design work showing the entire process Oct. 13 2007
By Pen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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...

Stdent work after all... Oct. 18 2007
By Jose L. De Juan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
