The Art of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Ciro Nieli

Sorry couldn't find a thread for this. The Book is out in just over a week, is there any previews, sneak peeks or news? I can't find anything about it, but Sounds interesting.

It should release on June 11th... haven't seen any previews of it yet.

If it really will be on shelves that soon, then surely there are people out there who already have it in-hand. Yet I haven't seen any preview yet.

I've had it ordered for around a year, waiting patiently for it.

I think most people here would probably get a lot of enjoyment out of this book, so if you didn't order it yet, get one secured at your favorite book store. Or I'll just make it easy for you:

Thanks for the preview link.

I'm excited for the book, and not judging it until I have it in hand. I will say though... an awful lot of the art shown seems shrank down to nearly thumbnail size. I hope it's not too hard to make out.

The two-page spread of the Sewer Lair in particular jumped out at me. There's a ton of little drawings there that I really wish I could see in great detail, and not sure how well those will transfer to page.

Anyway, we'll know soon enough.

I will absolutely be sharing my impressions once I have it in hand for those who are not pre-ordering. So, hopefully the evening of the 11th or sometime on the 12th I'll have something more to say.

This is basically radicalness in one book

Yeaaaaah, I need me this. IT'S SO FRIGGIN' COLORFUL. Already some pretty interesting new info from the previews as well. (Chompy coming from Nick suggesting adding a Kirby-esque super-powered fifth Turtle from space is NUTS.)

This is cool. Any stuff like unused concepts, dropped episodes, or stuff that didn't pan out?

Sorry to hear that. Happens to me every few years. Amazon lost a copy of Smash 3DS for me last time. Thankfully they are good about refunding/resending.

I got my copy of the book yesterday. Spent some time looking through it, though I'll do a deeper delve soon.

It left me wanting a lot more but what he did manage to include is really fascinating and rad. While some of the art is scaled down to almost thumbnail size, you can still see a lot of the detail. The book is super worth the money, that much I'm certain. It does feel rather abridged though, you can tell there's so much more that couldn't be fit in (particularly on pages where there's tons of thumbnails instead of larger pieces.)

I don't want to sound negative about the book. The format Ciro chose highlights a lot of great things from the design process. I can see everyone who likes the show getting their money's worth, easily.
