6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Sept. 17 2009
Format: Paperback
Length: 0:24 Mins
SF20: The Art of Street Fighter is actually a translated edition of the Japanese art book Street Fighter Art Works (ISBN:4862332145). It's really great that Capcom (or Udon Entertainment) has decided to translate it and pushed it out so fast.

SF20 is a 20th anniversary tribute art book to Street Fighter, which was actually released in 1987. This is a pretty thick 320-page paperback. It doesn't come with a dust jacket like the Japanese edition. On the non-glossy pages are printed with over 1500 illustrations, paintings and sketches. The spine is a bit inflexible for a book this thick and will definitely have wrinkles if you open the pages too wide.

The illustrations are divided into chapters by artists, namely:

* Akiman
* Kinu Nishimura
* CRMK
* Daigo Ikeno
* Daichan
* Edayan
* Shinkiro

Akiman is the designer for the classic Street Fighter characters. Daigo Ikeno is the art director and character designer for Street Fighter IV. The last chapter is a collection of work from other artists.

Since this is a character based game, you'll see a lot of character designs. They are a mixture in sizes from small portraits to the full page group splash art. Most are full colored illustrations in myriad manga styles. There are captions for everything and several artists interviews.

Work comes from all the various different versions of Street Fighter, including spin-offs like Super Puzzle Fighter II, or even some SNK-vs-CAPCOM illustrations -- rivalry between King of Fighters and Street Fighter is strong and burning. Included also are the latest Street Fighter IV character profile designs used in the game.

The art here spans over an impressive 20 years, I'm very sure there will be more to come.

Format: Paperback
This book is a MUST HAVE for any Street Fighter and Japanime fan. It is an ABSOLUTE overload of images and fine art in the entire Street Fighter universe. It is amazing how large, how immense the SF universe is. The hundreds of character, designs and concepts will overwhelm you.

Not only did this bring back childhood memories, but it enlightened me on the stellar artwork done behind the scenes, to bring all these famous characters to gaming console life. The book has everything from raw charcoal sketches, fully colored, as well as a short biography for each character. This one gets a generous 5 star from me and very high recommendation (P.S. amazing deal as well for over 300 pages of epic art)

20 years of fantastic art Sept. 17 2009

If you have bought Street Fighter Tribute and Udon's Art of Capcom and like them, I'm very sure you'll like this book as well.

320 page love letter to Fans Sept. 15 2009
By Audiobook listner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Something that makes this book extremely special to my mind is the illustrators comment on their work or a particular illustration. There are a few short interviews on their experiences working with Street Fighter. The art is divided into to sections devoted to Akiman, Shinkiro, Ikeno, and much more. I am very happy with my copy and appreciate the love and detail that obviously went into compiling this volume.

One note though, not all the pictures are large, but its perfectly understandable with the sheer volume of illustrations in this already very loaded book.

Highly Recommend.

Way Over Due! Oct. 13 2009
By James Bader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is great.

Only cons are:

Arranged only by artist.

No index or appendix.

Binding comes lose quickly.

Other than that it's a great book. Brings all the major stuff together so you don't have to search the internet for it.

Must Have Oct. 7 2009
By Sam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book contains so much great art, if you are a fan of street fighter you must have it. There are goodies in here that you wont be able to find anywhere else. My personal favorite are the sketches from the opening of Super Street Fighter 2 where Ryu is focusing and then throws the hadouken. It's just great to be able to see sketches of the characters and even the old character illustrations from the booklets that came with the game on consoles like super nes were in there. Just Awesome. If you are an artist, prepare to be inspired by the great pieces in here.

By Video Game History - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is for ANY fan of quality, detailed art. For the excellent price, you are getting a huge book filled with top notch
art geared towards anyone with an eye for talent. As a Street Fighter fan, this book also garners my accolades as an
excellent Street Fighter art resource. Makes a great coffee table book, or collector's book.

Excellent quality in ONE THICK book!! I highly recommend this whether or not you care about SF.

Wonderful addition to anyone's collection.

5 stars, marvelous.....
