Description de l'ouvrage

1 avril 2014 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Come face to face with Smaug the Magnificent, the most realistic, breathtaking and destructive dragon ever to appear on screen, in this gallery of exclusive images that tell the story of how he was created.

Smaug is possibly the most memorable character in JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit: a huge, malevolent, fire-breathing, talking dragon! But while he makes quite an impact in the book, in Peter Jackson’s film adaptation he is definitely the most spectacular creature ever to appear on screen.

So how did the filmmakers manage to take the dragon that has lived in millions of readers’ imaginations and turn him into a totally unique and unforgettable living, breathing character?

The answer can be found in Smaug: Unleashing the Dragon. Packed with stunning, exclusive new images, it reveals how he grew out of thousands of detailed and fantastical concept designs into the beast that is unleashed in awesome digital glory.

Compiled by the Academy Award™-winning teams at Weta Digital and Weta Workshop, who provide fascinating insights telling the story of the dragon’s creation, this is the perfect companion for every fan who was blown away by Smaug, the Magnificent!

Ce livre pourrait être considéré comme une sorte de "spin-off"
En effet, bien qu'appartenant à la collection intitulée "Le Hobbit: chroniques", le présent ouvrage, comme mentionné dans son titre, ne se concentre que sur le dragon Smaug!
Si l'idée semblait séduisante, le résultat est plutôt mitigé!
Format plus petit (comparé aux précédents livre de la collection), contenu moins dense (le nombre de page étant ramené à une centaine!) et dépourvu de réel intérêt, hors mis quelques visuels inédits et d'une poignée d'informations, elles aussi, plus ou moins inédites, ce 4ème volet des chroniques est sans doute le plus décevant de la collection!
Dommage car le personnage de Smaug aurait mérité un traitement ô combien plus profond !
Les croquits ne sont pas suffisamment nombreux ni correctement mis en valeur, la faute à un formatage non adapté! Comment impressionner le lecteur avec des images aussi réduites!
Des illustrations en pleines pages auraient sans doute été plus judicieuses vu le gigantisme de cette créature légendaire!
Seuls les afficionados y trouveront (peut être) leur compte.
Enfin, le prix, largement accessible, permet d'atténuer un peu le sentiment de déception!

Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Just what it needs to be, except... the size, ...., the size??
So why did the made this half the size of the others?
Drawings, stills, images are great, description is ok, but the same size as the other books would have been nice, with images bigger (and why not more),
Then again, the book is worth it's (small) price.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 How Smaug took shape for Jackson's The Hobbit movie 2 avril 2014
Par V. R. Hutter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Beautiful color production showing how the designers and artists designed Smaug. The various artists and designers discuss their thoughts and how they wanted to picture the dragon from The Hobbit movie directed by Peter Jackson. Very interesting text and beautiful drawings throughout--a high quality book on good paper. This is interesting and a great way to bring back memories of this wonderful adaptation of Tolkien's The Hobbit.

I thought this would be the same size as the rest of the movie books it is a little thicker then a childrens book. But for $15 no fan can go wrong.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful images, interesting insight into movie creation 30 avril 2014
Par Anya @ On Starships and Dragonwings - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Smaug: Unleashing the Dragon by Daniel Falconer is something a little different for this blog, but obviously still a great fit because dragons! Unleashing the Dragon details the creation process for making Smaug in The Hobbit trilogy and also gives a lot of insights into how Peter Jackson came up with the epic battle between Smaug and the dwarves. Every single page has gorgeously printed images that range from initial sketches to scenes from the movie. Something that I thought was especially fun to see were all of the early ideas for Smaug, which range from Komodo dragon to extremely serpentine. If I wasn’t already in grad school, I think I would be tempted to go into this sort of design work after learning all about the process!
Note: I received Smaug: Unleashing the Dragon from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Smaug: Unleashing the Dragon by Daniel Falconer (The Hobbit Chronicles #3.5)
Published by HarperCollins on April 3rd, 2014
Genres: Non-fiction
Length: 104 pages
How I got my copy: Publisher

Come face to face with Smaug the Magnificent, the most realistic, breathtaking and destructive dragon ever to appear on screen, in this gallery of exclusive images that tell the story of how he was created.

Smaug is possibly the most memorable character in JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit: a huge, malevolent, fire-breathing, talking dragon! But while he makes quite an impact in the book, in Peter Jackson’s film adaptation he is definitely the most spectacular creature ever to appear on screen.

So how did the filmmakers manage to take the dragon that has lived in millions of readers’ imaginations and turn him into a totally unique and unforgettable living, breathing character?

The answer can be found in Smaug: Unleashing the Dragon. Packed with stunning, exclusive new images, it reveals how he grew out of thousands of detailed and fantastical concept designs into the beast that is unleashed in awesome digital glory.

Strengths:
The first thing you’ll notice about Unleashing the Dragon is that it is sooooo pretty! There are illustrations from several different artists along with models and full movie scenes to give you a visual for everything mentioned in the text.
The text for Unleashing the Dragon is interesting since there isn’t as much of the typical non-fiction feel and instead all of the text is from the various designers and people involved with the creation of Smaug. Instead of just a few quotes here and there, you get all the information straight from the source, including Benedict Cumberbatch!
Unleashing the Dragon takes you through the entire process of creating Smaug, starting from the very first exploratory sketches, all the way through making the gold for his horde, and his final dramatic scene outside of the mountain.
It turns out that most of the action scenes with Smaug weren’t written or planned out ahead of time and instead decided upon through experimentation as Smaug was being created. This means that Unleashing the Dragon gives some really fun insights into Peter Jackson’s creative process for The Hobbit trilogy, which was a fun bonus.
I feel like I learned so much about special effects and graphic design for movies! In addition to the passages from designers, there are a couple of info boxes that tell you about what each of the different departments actually focus on. Unleashing the Dragon gives you a lot of insider information about what people in the industry actually call all the various jobs and tools that they use, so you can sound cool at your next cocktail party ;-).

Weaknesses:
A couple of the designers that wrote passages for Unleashing the Dragon got a bit over-jargony in their explanations. I could figure out mostly what they were trying to say, but here and there were words that I had no context for and context wasn’t provided in the info boxes.
A lot of the scenes that Smaug is in are dark between the inside of the mountain and it being night outside for most scenes. This means that some of the images from the film (or even some sketches) got too dark to be able to easily make out on paper.
If you haven’t seen the move The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, you might not get references to various scenes since they are definitely talked about in a way that assumes you’re familiar with the movie.

Summary:
Smaug: Unleashing the Dragon is a fun companion book for the movie trilogy and a great choice for any dragon lover! It is full of beautiful images, so would make a great geeky coffee table book, but it is also quite interesting to simply read straight through. If you’ve ever been curious about how the special effects for movies are created nowadays, you should definitely pick up Unleashing the Dragon.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you love Smaug, you will love this book. 23 avril 2014
Par Bryden - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I purchased this book as soon as I knew it was out. Then the reviews started coming around and they've been mixed. I can honestly say I was worried that this book might not live up to my expectations.

I had nothing to fear.

This book is an amazing insight into the wonderful creation process that gave us the King of Dragons; Smaug the Magnificent.

Like Smaug the book is magnificent filled with many, many images of would be Smaugs and just generally amazing dragon artwork. Some people have been complaining about the size of the images, there's no issue here. I can easily make out the subtleties of various stages of the artwork.

If you buy this book you will not be disappointed. I am a huge Smaug fan and everything in this book makes me appreciate just how unique, wonderful and magnificent the King of Dragons is.

Buy it!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Big Smaug in Small Format 15 avril 2014
Par S. Chen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
While its interesting to see Smaug's development from snake-like to really weird headed, it could be pared down enough to fit into one of the art books...which there are abt 3 for Desolation. Some of the paintings of Smaug would have benefitted from the large format and having too many books of the same movie is a hassle space-wise.

If Smaug featured BIG in your Hobbit experience (or your fascinated with movie dragon process) you 'd want to get this. If your not enamoured ...meh.
