The Art of The Incredibles

It isn’t often that artists let us into their personal process of creating art.  I love how Pixar releases these books with every film they make.  The pages are lavishly illustrated featuring concept and character sketches, storyboards, and lighting studies.  You are going to find a huge spectrum of media in this book, everything from collages, pastels, digital art, intricate color paintings, to the simplest pencil sketch on a napkin. The Art of The Incredibles on Amazon.com
