Resident Evil Revelations: Official Complete Works
Genetic modification and creature experimentation go under the microscope…
We’ve always been big fans of Capcom’s fan service. From marketing paraphernalia and ephemera, to collectables like this art of book, the beloved Japanese games developer of the Resident Evil series always seems to deliver highquality, insightful publications.
Readers are treated to the full production process that falls to the art team: from character concept art, 3D renders for marketing material, environment paintings and even logo design for patches and costumes.
Almost all of the pages have comments from the featured creator of the work. These are refreshingly humble in many cases: often the artist will poke fun at themselves for overstepping the mark, especially when handling new designs for the female characters. And no Resident Evil game would be complete without a plethora of genetically altered beasties, so if you’re a fan of great creature design then this book definitely caters for you.
