As mentioned the printing is of the utmost quality. No blemishes, colors are rich and detailed; the matte front and back cover practically glows. The book has one little blurb in the font about the art and process, but the rest of it is just pictures with a few in-game info blurbs here and there. The pages contain a mixture of sketches, full color concept art, final drafts and stunning clay-model renders; including things that didn't make it into the final game. This also includes items and armors from the multiplayer as well. It's split into five sections: demons, environments, characters, weapons, and props. Even minor things like power-ups and special effects get featured as well.
While there are a lot of pros, I have a few minor quips with the book. One of the monsters I was hoping to see the art process for was the Imp, since it received a big visual overall from the previous games. However, there is only one full page for the imp which consists of just one large full color concept piece that didn't make it into the game. The same treatment happened with the Hell-knight were it was only given one full page, which was a clay model render; though it was a really nice shot. It seems some of the monster and character pages received more dedication to in the book than others. While I understand this was probably done to keep the book from weighing a ton, it would've been nice to see a more complete overview of each. Also in the environments section a few pictures that received a full-page spread looked either a little blurry or had been compressed.
Overall though I love the book and the cons of it are just personal gripes that shouldn't stop someone interested in the art process to buy it. It's sure to be a nice addition for anyone's art book collection or DOOM collection.
Wonderful full color printing.
Nice mix of sketches to final product.
Large variety of subjects and pieces shown.
Gives a real gimps into the design process.
Awesome coffee table piece visually.
Some monsters and characters received more page art than others.
Lack of artist blurbs about the process.
A few artworks given full-page spread looked a little blurry or compressed.
I wish with concept art books that they would talk more about the process. Personal perspectives by the artists, rather than a broad overview by the art director.
