The Art of Avatar, the companion book to this epic 3-D action adventure, explores the developmental and conceptual art used by the creative team to create the original world of Avatar.
With over 100 exclusive full-color images including sketches, matte paintings, drawings, and film stills, The Art of Avatar reveals the process behind the creation of set designs for the imaginative vistas, unique landscapes, aerial battle scenes, bioluminescent nights, and fantastical creatures. Interviews with art directors, visual effects designers, animators, costume designers, and creature makers bring insight into this creative process. The Art of Avatar brings readers behind the scenes of this unprecedented moviegoing experience.

I love this book because it's inspiring. To see the processes all the designers/creators of everything from the plant life, creatures and mech suits went through to get it perfectly right is incredible. It's why I get a little irritated when people write the movie off as just ~*eye candy and claim no thought/originality went into it.

wow - it looks amazing! I definitely agree with you about how inspiring it is. When you see the level of detail and thought put into every aspect - it makes you appreciate the movie even more.

It is very irritating - especially when they go on and on about how the story is not original.

Anyway - I need to get this book!

Wow. Me wants!!!
Grr. They can say whatever they want. For me it was not only eye candy but it touched something in my soul. And for me it's the most important.
