Artbook Collections - Suggestions

Post by amfest »

Well I'm going to be completing a whole load of artbooks soon and was curious on which ones I should really view first. Of course I'll view them all but when I look through a book I like to take my time and view everything over and over. So if you have any big favorites in this list please shoutout :D Also posting your own collection would be great :) Anyhow the ones I'll be getting are

Murata's artbooks and portfolios are always stunning. I was able to have a look at his Futurythm and Last Exile Aerial Log thanks to DGP. His works leave a good lasting impression... nice, and very aesthetic... Sphere 2 shouldn't be an exception :D

And if you're into old fashioned manga style you should like the Ranma artbook. Chobits Your Eyes Only is nice too but you surely already saw all the illustration it contains on e-shuushuu or on other sites.

I think I have that same torrent waiting to be downloaded. I'll have to uncheck several artbooks that I already have though...

Here's my suggestion on Artbooks: Don't. I glanced over those; most of them have been posted in part. There is no need to post entire artbooks to the site.

I never stated I was posting to the image board. What ever gave you that idea. Please take the time to read what the post is asking for rather than being a stickler for rules on another area :\

The part about posting your own. You didn't specify listing; this being a discussion on art posted to shuu^2, that's a natural assumption to make.

Well when you submit on a forum you "post" >_>. Especially considering if people have their own stuff they can decide if they want to post to the board already or not. And they do or shuu shuu would be a ghost town ;) there wasn't a general area at the time so if you're going to be nitpicky I'll make future "image discussions" about art that aren't posted to shuu shuu there instead -_-;;

I have the "Suigetsu Visual fan Book", I think you can get it at #moe on rizon.

It's kind of explicit though, well it is a hentai game... :oops:

I finally got my artbook in from Nippon-Export yesterday!! :D

http://www.nippon-export.com/catalog/pr ... s_id=18228

The artist Tinkerbell is actually incorrectly named online. The actual pen-name is just Tinkle and this artbook is nothing short of outstanding!! The artwork is superb as you'll see of the images posted on the board. Catgirls, girls in frilly & lacy dresses, and a LOT of pantsu make this artbook one of the best artbooks I've come across. Highly recommended!! :D

Terrific Ran! :D
Having seen some of Tinkle/Tinkerbell's artwork posted here and several members -including you- so enthusiastic about the rest of the art that I ordered it from hlj.com and it's been shipped out to me last week (together with some other artbooks, e.g. from "Aria" and some anime T-shirts). Sounds like I won't be disappointed at all but that I'll enjoy it quite a bit!

Should I change the Tinkerbell tags to Tinkle or simply add Tinkle to them in the image board? Would anyone find that easier to browse and look up those images?


In fact, if any of you who buy anime artbooks would be interested, how about we use this thread to share our thoughts and experiences about the artbooks we have or had. Like which ones are very good and why we think they are good (because taste is personal), where you were able to purchase them, what pricerange you recommend, etc...
Let me know what you think!
