Let's continue after couple week break. This time art of Blizzard and SW episode1-3 and Mass Effect.

Art of Star Wars Episode1-3

the Art of SW Episode 1, notebook

SW Episode1small by StMan
Can't really call this artbook. It's very small notebook size thing, but in any case concept drawings are very nice.
Rating: good, but small "book"

the Art if SW Episode 2&3

SW Episode2 by StMan
SW Episode3 by StMan
Lucas hired many big names to draw concept art for new SW movies and you can see it in these books. There is tons of awesome designs which you never see in the movies. Also good stories how Lucas works... or sad when you see all those great ideas wasted because of one man.
Rating:Clap Heart 

Art of Mass Effect

the Art of Mass Effect

ArtofMassEffect by StMan
Art for first ME game. Good amount early concepts of aliens and evolution how they ended with final looks. This is good example what you put into game art book.

the Art of the Mass Effect Universe

ArtofMassEffect Universe by StMan
This came out same time with ME3 and it's collection of all three games art so it has also stuff from first art book. If you don't have first game's book, buy this one. Like first one good stuff, but because it squeezes all three games into one book and biggest focus is in with third game you might loose some nice art.

Art of Blizzard

the art of World of Warcraft

and Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mist of Bandaria and WoLK Cinematic

WOW artof by StManWOW BurningCrusade by StMan
WOW WrathoftheLichKing by StManWOW Cataclysm by StMan
WOW MistofPandaria by StManWOW WrathoftheLichKing Cinematic by StMan
These books came with WOW Collectors editions. I'm not sure can you get these anywhere else. Maybe from Blizzard's store?
I have always loved Blizzard's art and Blizzard started hired great artist to design look of WoW... so end result is great and quality of art rises in every book (still my fav's are first and Lich King books).
Rating:La la la la +fav 

the Art of Warcraft

ArtofWarcraft by StMan
Art of first three Warcraft games and some stuff from canceled adventure game. Some of first drawings from first games aren't pretty and some full page cgi cutscene shots seems to be randomly taken, but there is also cool drawings and paintings... at least if you are friend of Warcraft.
Rating::) (Smile) 

the Art of the Trading Card Game (World of Warcraft)

WOW TradingCardGame by StMan
Thick and wide book of WoW card game's art. Lot's of drawings and paintings for the cards from different artists. Quality varies, but mostly lovely illustrations (no concept art for the games in this one).

Art of Diablo3 (and Reapers of Souls -expansion)

Diablo3 by StMan
ArtofDiablo3 by StMan
Even if some people cry Diablo3 is too colorful, I like art of D3. Ingame has nice fantasy painting look and these books has cool illustrations and concepts of demons from Hell (except female Diablo was bit stupid :)). These are also from Collectors Edition boxes, dunno if you can buy them anywhere :shrug:

Art of Starcraft2 (Wings of Liberty and Heart of Swarm)

Starcraft2 WingsofLiberty by StMan
Starcraft2 HeartofSwarm by StMan
I never was big fan of Starcraft games (good games, just not my type of games), but art is still cool... even after they tried to steer away from WH40K Space Marines :).

and last one:

the Art of Blizzard

ArtofBlizzard by StMan
This book is huge and heavy. 376 pages, 12.8 x 9.7 x 1.6 inches and weight a ton... bible of Blizzard art. Collects art from all of their games. Buy this one and then if you need more you can try to hunt those other books.
Rating:I think I've fainted.
