Book Description

May 1 2005
A tale from the Brothers Grimm provides inspiration for three gifted students from the world-renowned Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Khang Le, Mike Yamada, and Felix Yoon were guided by their instructor, Scott Robertson, to create original design solutions for the environments, characters, props, and vehicles found within "The Skillful Huntsman". The trio's sketches and full-color renderings thoroughly document the creative process of concept design, revealing a host of intriguing places - from sci-fi cities to castles - and people - from giants to royalty. A must for artists, aspiring entertainment designers, comic aficionados, and anyone interested in the creative process, "The Skillful Huntsman" offers insight into the mysterious world of the imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Sketchbook Essentially Feb. 12 2009
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This is essentially a sketchbook. It also looks very much like a school project for art students. And the art students in particular are Khang Le, Mike Yamada and Felix Yoon.

The Skillful Huntsman is actually a story by the Brothers Grimm.

Based on the short story, the artists then came up with concept drawings for the characters, set, props and environment. As you can see in the video, there are lots of sketches on character designs. For every subject, there's comment from the artist on the thought process for the creation. And just beneath that comment is another one from the Scott Robertson, a teacher at the Art College of Design.

It's fun to see how the 3 artists interpret the stories and come up with their own unique concepts and designs.

Bear in mind that this book was published in 2005. These talented students have already gone on to work at major studios.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shockingly Good May 29 2006
By A. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I just bought the book today after leafing through it at a local comic book store in New York. The concept art is great. All three artists are very talented. So why shockingly good? Here's why. These guys are young- very young to be this good. Art is a function of talent, focus, and practicing the craft. It's apparent that these kids have done all three.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very inspiring Work Jan. 10 2007
By Erik Aagard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Amazing work for such young artists. It was interesting to see how Scott Robertson (the teacher) coached the students and explained some of the different methods they used for exploring ideas. I would also liked to have seen the instructions and techniques that Scott used to explain some of the ideation concepts to the students also. This is an amazing book - the drawings are so loose and beautiful - they inspire and astound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, Imaginative, Inspirational Feb. 28 2012
By T. Bell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book originally because it sounded interesting: three artists conceptualizing the same fairytale. What I got was a book FILLED with sketches (which I love, as an artist myself). These three gentlemen walk us through their creative process visually, so you can see how blocking out character shapes turns into detailed character design with color, attitude, and even some humor. I flip through this book regularly (have had it now for two years), and I'll see a headdress here, a sword there, a detail on a gown, and it gives me new ideas for my own characters.

Of the MANY books that claim to be concept art, The Skillful Huntsman is, by far, the best I've found. Love love love.
