The Art of 5th Cell by Joe Tringal and Edison Yan
The Art of 5th Cell - Edison Yan,5th Cell

The Art of 5th Cell is a showcase for the company’s many unique games, including Scribblenauts, Lock’s Quest, and Drawn to Life, and the art that helps them come to life.

This book felt too short: I would have liked to see more writing about the process. There are comments sprinkled throughout that act like glimpses, but I would have liked to know more about the creative process that goes into creating artwork that perfectly fits games.

Still, this is a book with gorgeous illustrations and revealing works-in-progress, as well as concept art and promotional materials. I almost wish I had seen it in person before downloading the digital edition, because this certainly looks like a book that you want to physically hold in your hands to lose yourself in the details of the art.

 

Note: I got this book for review purposes through NetGalley.

Cool 5th cell art brings games to life!
The Art of 5th Cell - Edison Yan,5th Cell

This book is amazing to look through!  The art is all very in depth, from rough sketches to test patterns, to final product.

 

The full color images are so life like and it takes you through a step by step look at the game Scribblenauts.  If you have a child at home they may want to look along with you.

 

Bringing these digital worlds to life, 5th cell shows you how something so captivating as a game can come from such a simple beginning.

 

Beautiful color photos and actual game pictures should delight all ages.  A Book to be on our coffee table for some time to come.
