It's late to say this, but I got Art of Coco and Art of Disney's Dragons for Christmas, and Art of Kung Fu Panda 3 for my birthday.


Art of Coco is great! It's so nice to have a readable Pixar book again, though I think it's still light on the text compared to others. My favorite part is when they go over Pepita's skeletal structure; perfect example of something that someone that doesn't know much about this stuff would be shocked to find they think about. 

Art of Disney's Dragons turned out to be another no text one, which is a huge shame because I loved the concept and it had Figment, who I also love! Why do the books with the opportunity to go in depth on the imaginary characters, with their infinite possibilities, never do it?

Art of Kung Fu Panda 3 I bought for the art and am glad I did. It makes me think I should go find wherever I put Art of Good Dinosaur (I associate the two movies closely; they're their respective studios' most beautiful films which unfortunately do not have good writing to match); I should've at least given its art a look. 



On a completely unrelated note, looking at Disney and Pixar's books, I want to complain about Lasseter writing a foreword for nearly every 2013-> book, but...I don't think that'll be a problem anymore.

I was thinking something similar recently. I watched Mulan for the first time - bit of a pig's ear of a film, but looks very lush. Kicking myself because the Art Of book is almost twenty years OOP! It's still out there, but after all this time it's going to bite into my 'hobby' budget.

Especially when there's that dragon book to think of too. I like me some creature design, particularly dragons. Although I'm having trouble thinking of more than four examples from the Disney stable, off the top of my head...

Mulan was my favorite movie when I was younger! I haven't watched it recently enough to really form an opinion on its writing and animation, unfortunately. The absolutely glowing Parka Blogs review (which does a ton of art book reviews)makes its sound like something I'd really enjoy (heavy emphasis on story and research), though, and it looks like a used copy is about as much as I paid for the first KFP book. Maybe I'll go for it. [Silly_zps7c205e8c] It'd probably be after I ran out of CGI movie books, though. 

Well, it's got Maleficent, Narissa (Enchanted), Mushu, both versions of Elliot, Figment, and some I've never really heard of like this one that it labels as from a Silly Symphonies animation. It also has a some sketches that never actually made it into anything (some of the stuff has a stated project it was for, like Beastly Kingdom, some of it seems to just be not connected to anything). Some of the stuff it covers isn't actually dragons; it's got the Hydra, the animated and live action Jabberwocks, some creepy sketch from Tim Burton that is just a ball of fur with bat wings and a mangled head, etc. The book doesn't really label things so much as it has a glossary in the back, so it's a little tedious trying to find where this stuff is from.

It's a pretty cool book, really, just missing something that's important to me personally. Though it's smaller than typical movie art books, so some of this stuff is just crying out to be on a bigger page.

Well I can feel my foot firmly wedged in my mouth for badmouthing your favourite childhood film! Though... I'll have to see if there's somewhere I can post further thoughts.

Again, I can share your frustration at text-light art-of books. Not to say I'm completely put off the dragon book; but if I want to ogle the finished product without digging into the artists' thoughts and influences... I've got NowTV for that.
