Uzumaki Illustration Book

Has anyone picked up this book yet? I just ordered it recently and am awaiting some badass art from Kishimoto. I was just wondering how much of it is original artwork?

Probably quite alot, Wich leads me to believe there is no reason to buy it.(not that I COULD buy it here) Since I have a lot of it and on top of that i'v got the beautifully colored by Inane's very talented paintpixel members.

But we won't know till it's there..and scanned

Well, when it comes in, I'll do everyone a favor and scan some nice pics. What really got me to buying this thing is the cover. Check it out. I've never seen this one before and to me, it's one of Kishimoto's best ever.


Freaking beautiful. I really want to learn how to color like that on the computer. I love the old school manga colors.

It's a pretty good artbook. Most of the pictures are of Sasuke & Naruto though (Of course). You just posted the front cover, but the back cover picture is an equally badass picture of Sasuke doing Chidori with the Fuuma Shuriken on his back.

It's mostly pictures we've seen before, but it does have a bit of original artwork.

Um, one kick "azz" picture that isn't even in the fucking artbook that we're talking about. Why the fuck did you even post that? This isn't the Image thread!

Hehe, I love manga artbooks too, so so much, but there are so many others I want to buy before this one. (Plus I'm cheap and I'm hoping the price will go down ^^;.) Thanks for scanning the lovely pic, Gevurah.

Really makes me wish the anime had stayed true to the manga's yellow chakra instead of turning it blue.

Absolutely . But I guess they needed a color that is the opposite of the "evil" kyubi chakra, yellow and orange/red maybe look to much alike.

Or something along those line..

I know that is not from the Uzumaki artbook but I always wondered where does it comes from. It also looks more like an anime artwork too.

As for Uzumaki, I'd say buy it only if you're a hardcore fans. The majority of the pictures are available either online or on the cover of the manga themselves.

Shit Gevurah, the art book is incredible! I could say which I like best but there are somany I like best! Great work. Great work indeed

Now let's hope someone translates those last 10 or so pages, they seem to be stats or something...

There are some minor spoilers every now and then, so Anime watchers should take care altho the majority of the art is ok.

maybe people wouldn't complain about Naruto's outfit if the chakra was yellow... it fits quite well with the orange jumpsuit

Um, you can get it at Sasuga Books. Just google it and find the link. As for my book... it got sent to my house in California instead of my house in Germany. Bleh. It's all good though, I'll jack it from my brother when I get back next year.

From what he told me about the book, he said that it shows how Kishimoto draws his characters! This will be good for those who want to emulate his style. I hope there's a Bleach manga artbook because Kubo's artwork just plain rocks.

The best place to buy art books that I know of is a little known store - www.animebooks.com I just happened to glance at the page to make sure they had 'Uzumaki' and apparently it's on special for $16 right now. Check it out.

The book looks cool. I'm always happy when they art books of the original artists' work. Art books full of anime screens and promo art are next to worthless IMO.
