By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Oct. 8 2011
Format: Hardcover
Length: 1:29 Mins
I've the paperback edition, but I'm reproducing my review for that edition here in case you missed it. Here's the paperback edition: KOLONIE

It's a large book, slightly larger than A4 in size. 160 pages total.

I like the concept Design Studo Press is using to publish some their books. Choosing a theme and then creating a concept art book based on that theme. Some of them are Alien Race: Visual Development of an Intergalactic Adventure, Exodyssey: Visual Development of an Epic Adventure by Steambot Studios or even Worlds: A Mission of Discovery.

The concept here is about a new found planet called Kolonie. It was industrialised for its oil, and then abandoned when oil was replaced by other energy sources.

The premise is simple but the exciting part comes from how the two artists, Patrick Hanenberger and Christian Schellewald, visualise that new world. It's must be pretty fun coming up with the various concepts.

The concept art is on the deserted areas, the cities, oil pumping plants, spaceports, and environments. It reminds me of photos I see online on deserted places. It's a dystopia where there are still people living, so there are some character designs as well. There are also designs for taxis, race cars (hobbies of people there), the non-drilling areas and other interesting stuff.

It's like plein air art on an imaginary planet Oct. 8 2011

Most of the illustrations are printed huge. Some sketchy, some detailed. But all give a nice idea of what it's like on Kolonie. They are sort of like plein air sketches on an imaginary planet. The short descriptions for the various places provides additional interesting background stories. One or two pieces are pixelated because they are blown up too big - not really a big deal.

This book should appeal to concept artists.
