The guys at San Francisco art studio Massive Black have been busy gathering images and words together for this amazing release, now available to PreOrder. We know you're going to like it. Click the image to go to the Ballistic site.
Since 2003, this company of ultra-talented artists has contributed original art, design and animation for some of the most successful consumer brands and franchises in games and film. They have also conjured up their own world-class Intellectual Properties: Zombie Playground, Mothhead, PROXY, and Transient. Every ounce of their art has that distinct Massive Black flavour of awesomeness, which translates beautifully in the pages of Ballistic Publishing’s Massive Black volume 2 - a visual tour de force that chronicles many of their artistic achievements from 2008-2012.
Massive Black volume 2 shows the evolution from concept to completion in everything from the biggest games, movies, TV shows, and properties known today. Game players and game artists alike will be enthralled at their work for such titles as the huge Suckerpunch’s “InFamous 2”; Konami/Climax Studio’s brilliant “Silent Hill: Shattered Memories”: and the recent “Starhawk” from Incognito/Lightbox. There are hundreds of individual character, vehicle, weapon and creature designs to flick through and nurture your own ideas. There is also much for movie fans and movie-makers, with Massive Black’s work on the “Transformers” films, and their toy designs on G.I. Joe, which influenced the content of things in the film. For those interested in how to make big TV campaigns, check out their work with Coco pops, V-Energy Drink and “Dancing with the stars”. There’s all this, and much, much more to be found in the 208 pages of Massive Black volume 2.
Massive Black is owned, operated and championed by artists. This book is the second volume of work as a studio available in print. Be inspired by Massive Black volume 2, and learn what it takes to become an art studio of the highest order.
