Le livre est épais de 304 pages. Pas de jaquette. Le papier est épais, légèrement brillant, plus épais que pour Darkstalkers Tribute. La reliure est bonne (heureusement).
Suite au succès des volumes précédents de la série Hommage, plus de 2500 participations ont été envoyées pour ce livre mais seulement près de 300 ont été sélectionnées.
La variété est incroyable, de l'illustration vectorielle au manga, du modèle 3D en passant par les poupées faites main ou encore par les maquettes en papier (paper toys). J'aime la série des Hommages parce que j'apprécie de regarder les multiples interprétations par des artistes différents. Dans un artbook de fan art comme celui-ci, on trouve plein de surprises plaisantes, des styles artistiques qui sont extrêmement différents des créations originales du jeu.
La qualité des productions artistiques est vraiment haute. Tous les artistes et leurs sites internet sont référencés juste sous leurs illustrations ce qui est très pratique si l'on souhaite en apprendre plus à propos d'un artiste en particulier.
J'avais l'habitude de jouer aux jeux, ceux de la première série, alors ce livre ramène à coup sûr quelques souvenirs.Lire la suite ›
Je suis un fan de Megaman et des univers de Capcom en général.
Ce livre qui regroupe énormément d'illustration sur Megaman plaira beaucoup aux fans du petit robot bleu. Il y a vraiment beaucoup de style différents mais en général les illustrations sélectionnés font mouche.
Le seul bémol pour mon expérience est le modèle d'emballage utilisé par Amazon qui n'a pas permis une protection optimum du livre. Il est arrivé avec un coin vraiment abimé et une 20 aine de page cornées. Les 3 étoiles sont là pour sanctionné ce mode d'emballage.

Mega fantastic fan art book16 août 2011
- Publié sur Amazon.com
I like the Tribute series from Udon. This one's as good as Street Fighter Tribute and Darkstalkers Tribute.
The book is 304 pages thick. No dust jacket. The paper is thick low gloss type, thicker than Darkstalkers Tribute. Binding is good (thankfully).
Due to the success of earlier Tribute series, there are over 2500 entries submitted for this book but only close to 300 are selected.
The variety is incredible, from vector to manga, to 3D model to actual handmade dolls and paper toys. I like the Tribute series because I enjoy looking at the different interpretation by different artist. In a fan art book like this, there are lots of pleasant surprises, artistic style that are wildly different from official game art.
The quality of art is also very high. All the artists and their website are just below their illustrations which is really convenient if you want to learn more about the artist.
I used to play the game, the earlier series, so this book sure brings back some memories. It features art mainly from the original series, but there are also some art for Mega Man X, Zero, ZX and Legends. The other series probably can have a tribute book on their own.
This is a fantastic art book for fans and art lovers.
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

This book far exceeded my expectations. Mega Man Tribue features a LOT of great artists, a huge variety of styles and many masterful pieces. It's great to see how the artists reinterpreted the theme is so many creative ways- pixel art, plush figures, woodcuts, posters, vector art and many cool digital paintings styles. There's so much eye candy in this book I find myself keep coming back to it for inspiration. The paper is nice and thick and the printing looks great. There is typically 1 image per page, large enough to appreciate the details in each piece. It's not just for fans of Megaman, but for anyone who enjoys great concept art and illustration. I have a large collection of art and design books, this one is one of my all-time favorites.

An amazing art book for a truly awesome series14 mars 2012
- Publié sur Amazon.com
Truly, who doesn't love Mega Man? The Mega Man brand name has produced some of the most exciting, excellently designed titles in the entirety of video game history, regardless of which series you consider. Everyone has some sort of special memory in their heart for Mega Man, and for those who consider him to be one of their most beloved video game franchises, buy this book immediately! It is, in its entirety, a real masterpiece of an art book.
First off, this book has about 300 pages, most of which have one big piece of fanart devoted to Mega Man. It's a very nice format that puts the focus purely on the art, with a small bit of text at the bottom with a little info on the artist. The variety of art styles here is amazing, and when you consider these 300 people were selected from over 2,500 submissions for the book, rest assured you are going to be treated to some incredible pieces of visual wonderment. You can expect to find some pieces you'll love more than others, but almost all bring something meaningful to the table in terms of artistic merit. I can't help but have a huge smile plastered over my face while going through this book. It's obvious each artist truly has a passion for the blue bomber, and it showed in their art. This is a book by fans for fans, and for that, it is one of the best art books I have ever seen. No joke. The printing done was fantastic too. The paper is high-quality and the colors are so vivid, it truly compliments and fulfills the original vision each artist had in mind when crafting their submissions. Bravo Udon!
There's also a fairly impressive variety of series that are represented in this book as well. A huge portion is devoted to the classic Mega Man series, obviously. There's also a fairly substantial amount of space devoted to the awesome Mega Man X series. In addition to those two, there's also art of the Mega Man Zero series (a personal favorite of mine, especially in its art design. If you believe that too, then getting the Megaman Zero Official Complete Works is a great idea too, as Zero is simply not represented enough in Tribute in my opinion, unfortunately), the ZX series, and the Legends series. If you wanted to see fan art of the Battle Network or the Star Force series, you're out of luck. You can always get their own Udon Official Complete Works art books to scratch that itch. Like I said earlier, the art depicting these truly iconic series is amazing. It just goes to show that Mega Man is truly a special franchise, so universally appealing to the imagination, that everyone has their own unique vision and view of the character and his adventures, and to see some of them depicted so vividly through so many different artists' perspective and style in this book is truly awesome.
This is one of the best art books I've ever owned, and definitely a high point in Udon's publication history, but I do have a couple of nit-picky complaints I feel are worth voicing. First off, while I love the variety of subject matter in the book, I can't help but wish it was a little more evenly spread out. The Zero and ZX games get very little space in comparison to Classic and X. I guess that's not surprising, but I would have love to see the real estate devoted to the Zero, ZX, and Legend series be a bit bigger, but that's a small complaint due to my personal preference, and doesn't do anything to bring down the quality of the book itself or its contents. Also, I've gone online and seen some of the submissions that didn't make it into the book and was left scratching my head as to why they were beaten by some of the weaker pieces in the book. I'll be honest, not every single piece is great, and a few are pretty weak and lackluster, in my opinion. Again, that may be purely preferential on my part. I wish/hope Udon does a Mega Man Tribute 2 in the future, as the potential for more incredible art is there, as evidenced by some of the truly spectacular pieces that, for some reason, were not chosen for this edition.
I have one more gripe, and this is more technical: the binding is not that great. Udon is known for this problem with their thick paperback books, and it's a problem here especially, due to how huge the book is. It's not a knock against the book, because it is to be expected with such a large book, but you need to be very careful with the book. Even then, you may find the binding start to come undone much sooner than you think. I'm *extremely* delicate with my copy, and even then I noticed the glued spine losing its hold quite quickly. Boo! Personally, I'd say it's worth spending a little more and getting the exclusive hardcover edition from Udon's online store. That edition has an exclusive art piece on its cover and it's obviously a lot more durable than this paperback edition.
All-in-all though, this is one of the best, most enjoyable art books I have ever owned personally, and I own quite a few. The subject matter of Mega Man, in all of the five forms included in the book, is a wonderful idea, especially for those who, like me, will always have a special place in their hearts for the Blue Bomber, X, Zero, Volnutt, or even the relatively new yet charming ZX characters, as well as all of their equally lovable supporting casts. It's clear this book was lovingly crafted from hundreds of people who all love Mega Man, for the purpose of being enjoyed by fans of Mega Man. It's an exceptional book, and I give it my highest recommendation. Buy it, enjoy the many unique depictions from Mega Man's spectacular history, and let this awesome celebration of a true gaming icon inspire you.

Beautiful and FRAGILE!!15 octobre 2013
- Publié sur Amazon.com
The art work in here is unquestionably beautiful. I spent about 2+ hours enjoying the different takes of the Blue Bomber. When I received the book it was in immaculate condition. HOWEVER the binding is very weak to hold such a massive collection of art work and the pages are of top quality giving each page some weight, thus the pages will, your first time through break away from the spine. The book stays together, it's not leaving the cover but it did break away from it a bit and more so as you look through it over and over again.
I highly recommend this book for any art fan and especially any Mega Man fan, just be aware that the binding will break first time through with this soft cover edition. I should have spent the extra money one the hardcover library binder edition and will for future books of this magnitude in the future.

Just like the author writes in the introduction, this book is full of diferent artists showing how they imagine the 8/16/32 bits blue bomber. You'll find some of them to be cartoonish, while other realistic. Some of will look cute, but then again, others will look awesome. You'll see some preety literal or true to the original material, but then you see something completely abstract or bizarre. The mash of completely different interpretations is obviously the main focus here, and it accomplishes amazingly. You'll most likely find something that fits your own personal visions. It gets even better when you take in consideration all this art comes from the same original source, which is only posible thanks to the powerful iconic image of Rockman and his entire universe. Just like other Udon's books, the quality here is top notch (See Okami and Art of Udon series).
A must have tribute from Megaman fans for Megaman fans.
