Or maybe I should just put down my art supplies and stylus and never pick them up again because hoo boy I am humbled and depressed. Jan 21, Fyre. Katz rated it did not like it. Mar 21, April rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is a beautiful side note to an amazingly spectacular game.

Here is the book summary: Legendary game designer American McGee created one of the most visually arresting games of all time in Alice. Eleven I'll say it though - I am an occasional gamer and not a big fan alice in wonderland or wizard of oz but got to say though I recently began playing the game Alice: Just in time for Madness Returns, Dark Horse and Spicy Horse studio invite Alice fans to take a journey through the wonderland of American McGee's imagination for a look at this magnificent and disturbing world.

With text by Madness Returns lead writer and executive producer R.

Berg, and featuring an introduction by McGee, The Art of Alice offers an intimate look into the artwork behind this blockbuster interpretation of Lewis Carroll's enduring masterpiece. Before a game, movie or even anything new is about to be made or is in its stages of production the said team begins about it by brain storming new ideas. Sometimes those ideas are not adopted in the final play but they pave the way for the final product.

And the paged hardcover art book based around all that was involved with the creation of American McGee's Alice sequel proves just that. You can see crows with baby faces, Jack the Ripper with tentacles, Alice helping a mother giving birth to a load of kids gruesome concept , an angler fish with human legs, cow birds, steampunk-like contraptions, a Chinese Humpty Dumpty, flying pig snout, embellished pieces of weaponry, etc.

The many variations that were tried for the characters, and Alice in particular are just amazing - down to dress designs and hair styles. I loved seeing the evolution of ideas and characters, different artists takes on things. The book is filled with gorgeous art work and makes the reader really appreciate just how much work and thought goes into the making of a game.

Not only is the artwork absolutely breathtaking, it is also very iteresting to see the different renditions of things and to see how the art progressed as planning for the game evolved.

There is a whole chapter just on Alice and her dress and all the thought that went into how Alice would portray the game. There are chapters on the worlds and why they were decided on and how they were built. The developers went to great lengths to make sure scenarios from the first game are echoed and portrayed similarly in this game; it is apparent that this is the Wonderland Alice originally went to but somewhat changed.

The content is beyond incredible. The art in the book comes with blurbs about the piece from the artist or a producer, and it often goes into detail about the piece, why it was made, and what the goal for the piece was. Most of the work is concept art, but they are of high quality. There is a lot of complete pieces with full color and depth. Not just sketches or storyboards which is common in alot of artbooks you get as preorder bonuses with games.

The book is broken into chapters, with each chapter giving insight on an aspect of the game, such as pre-production or Wonderland locations. Each chapter has art pertaining to the theme. So in pre-production, you see alot of the brainstorming and ideas that came up early in the game's development that ended up getting cut from the game.

It's a real treat to see. Even the design of the characters are in detail. All things said and done if you enjoy graphic novels and art books, are an Alice aficionado and love gothic, gloomy styling you'll dig this book for sure. May 17, Patricia rated it really liked it Shelves: I loved it.

I don't "do" Artbooks often, but this was amazing. Some months ago I met this guy.

We were awkward around each other until we found something to talk about. When he told me about the first Alice Game, I wanted to have it.

Needless to say there wasn't any store that still had it in stock. And of course this little punk wouldn't give his copy to me for a week or two. So, what was the first thing that I did when I got this Galley? Facebook, Twitter and ICQ. And he was so I loved it.

And he was so damn pissed. Make some screenshots, show me something, anything, puleaaase! D The real question is how do I review an artbook? So many that my expectations and my imagination are running wild. After the introduction by American McGee Oh, btw: Now I need to have the game even more!

I can recommend the book to Alice-Fans as well as some of the Artbookfans. It's worth the money and I already preordered the physical book and the Game, of course! Do you know those books that you dive into?

The Art of Alice: Madness Returns

You don't want to stop reading them, because they are so complex, the worldbuilding is so genious and everytime you look you find something new that you either love or hate or whatever. I'm so glad I'll have the game in June. Another FF woulda killed me. Alice 2 is going to be so awesome.

Oh boy. download the book, download the game, download the first Alice game. Die happy. May 27, Karissa rated it it was amazing. I loved the artwork from the first video game, American McGee's Alice, and this book goes into great detail on how the artwork was designed and detailed for the second game Alice: The artwork was absolutely stunning, it has a very dark overtone to it, and the explanations about artistic decisions that were made are engaging and interesting.

I am always a bit surprised about how much planning and work goes in I got an eGalley of this book from Dark Horse through NetGalley dot com. I am always a bit surprised about how much planning and work goes into the art for certain video games.

Madness Returns, had an incredible amount of thought put into the artwork. This is a very dark book filled with very dark artwork. If you are a fan of the first video game you know this is dark.

That being said some of the images are scary and disturbing; probably not a book you want to look through with a young child. Overall I was very impressed with this artbook. The art is stunning, the explanations behind it interesting, and the whole thing is very nicely put together. Everything is well-written and easy to read. This is a great book to pick up if you are a fan of dark fantasy art. It is also a great book to pick up if you are a fan of this game series.

This book made me look forward to the game release of Alice: Madness Returns out in June even more! May 20, Chibineko rated it it was amazing Shelves: Few game creators are as recognizable as American McGee is.

Even people who have never played his Alice game recognize the artwork such as myself- I watched a friend play it , so it makes a lot of sense that McGee would eventually venture back into the insane world of Alice.

And because of that there's all new glorious artwork to behold! Eleven years later, McGee returns with a sequel just as groundbreaking as his critically acclaimed classic—Alice: This is about the closest you can come to picking McGee's brain without pulling a Hannibal Lecter on him! The only downfall about this book is that now a whole slew of people are going to be eagerly awaiting the new game's release in June.

Seriously, this is one of the more beautifully laid out artbooks I've seen.

Fans of the original game and a dark look at Alice in Wonderland will be enthralled by the quality artwork. The images included in this book are beautiful, bizarre, frightening and brilliant. The dark twists and turns that Alice takes into Wonderland in this journey looks simply fantastic and makes me want to spend some serious ti The Art of Alice: The dark twists and turns that Alice takes into Wonderland in this journey looks simply fantastic and makes me want to spend some serious time playing the game.

Not every piece of artwork has explanations or details included, but most do. There were a few pieces that I would have loved more information on, but all in all the work and commentary reach a nice blend of stunning artwork and interesting tidbits that would fascinate fans of the game. The included artwork is brilliant, and the evolution of that artwork and the effects the artwork had on game play and story arcs were fascinating, even to a very casual gamer like myself.I loved this book.
