Présentation de l'éditeur

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Chronicles II: Creatures and Characters explores the amazing cast of heroes, villains, beasts, and beings that populate Middleearth in the fi rst chapter of Peter Jackson's fi lm adaptations of JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit. Richly illustrated with behind-the-scenes photographs, digital renders, and fi lm stills, this comprehensive book goes species by species and character by character through the fi lm's huge ensemble cast and bustling menagerie of creatures, both physical and digital, and shows how each came to be realized for the fi lm.

First-hand accounts from the actors, makeup artists, digital effects specialists, dialect coaches, prosthetics technicians, movement coaches, and many other crew members describe the process and how the production unfolded, while also sharing insights into the characters. A bonus feature, unique to this book, is the special fold-out character size chart, which compares all the major creatures and characters of the fi lm, from Radagast's hedgehog friend to the towering Stone Giants!

Compiled by Weta Workshop designer Daniel Falconer and featuring a wealth of stunning imagery, this book puts the reader face-to-face with all the creatures and characters of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, from the Dwarf heroes to the dark denizens of Middle-earth–the Orcs, Goblins, Trolls, and Wargs–and, of course, the hobbit himself, Bilbo Baggins.

Bonjour,
cet ouvrage passe en revue tous les personnages du film de Peter Jackson, à savoir Le Hobbit: un voyage inattendu.
Non seulement il aborde les personnages principaux, mais également les personnages secondaires, voire de troisième plan! Un vrai régal pour tous les inconditionnels qui, comme moi, attachent beaucoup d'importance à ce genre de détails! Les photos sont superbes, nombreuses et la plupart du temps inédites!
Un "must have" pour tous les passionnés de l'univers de Tolkien en général, et pour les fans du métrage de Jackson en particulier!

HASH(0x926a11ec) étoiles sur 5 The Hobbit - Art Book II 24 juin 2014
Par JMM - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Weta is an amazing company that does most of the design work on the "Hobbit" films. They do everything from practical effects (prosthetics to miniatures) to digital effects (CGI simulations and character animation). It's important to note that the people that work on these films are not only master technicians, but they are very creative artists as well.

This is the second book in what will be a 6-book series of Weta's chronicles of the Hobbit trilogy. The first book featured the production design and concept art of "An Unexpected Journey"; this book focuses particularly on the characters and creatures of that film. It's a expansive look at the character designs in the film.

There are plenty of high quality images that fans of the film will be interested in -- conceptual artwork of the creature designs; character portraits; photos of the makeup application; etc. The books goes in depth about every aspect of visual characterization, but particular emphasis is placed on the makeup and hair work.

I highly recommend this book (and its companion books as well). As someone who enjoyed the Tolkien novel, I find it fascinating to see how the filmmakers and the creative team took what was on the page and translated it visually into a movie - and I'm happy to own a book that provides an inside look at that process.

HASH(0x926a1240) étoiles sur 5 Another outstanding entry from Weta Workshop! 9 avril 2013
Par Angie K. Long - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
After reading the first Weta Workshop book on THAUJ, "Chronicles Art & Design" I was eagerly awaiting the second volume, which focuses on "Characters and Creatures."

I was not disappointed. I received the book yesterday and immediately began reading. First of all, it looks great, handsomely bound with an embossed cover and gilt lettering, the four key characters--Thorin, Gandalf, Bilbo and Gollum--each claiming their respective corners of the cover.

Within those covers are many beautiful color photos as well as artists' renderings, and the reader is taken behind the scenes to see, for example, how dwarf prosthetics and wigs are made, the evolution of creatures such as the trolls and the Goblin King, and how the actors protraying elves and dwarves learn how to move and how to find the right accent for their character. There are many quotes from Weta Workshop members and the film crew along with the actors.

I feel as if I know the actors better for having read this book along with getting a good glimpse into the formation of each of their characters. What a camaraderie they developed along the way! And I am impressed mightily by the painstaking attention to detail and craftsmanship exhibited by the makeup and prosthetic artists (who SHOULD have won an Oscar . . .)

If you are a fan of The Hobbit film and love beautiful "coffee table" books that are jam-packed with behind-the-scenes knowledge, you will want to add this to your library. It would make a great gift for a Tolkien fan, too. Definitely five stars!

HASH(0x926a1d2c) étoiles sur 5 Just as wonderful as the Art & Design volume 10 avril 2013
Par Sue - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As wonderful as Weta's first Hobbit Chronicles volume was, this second volume is as interesting and fun for completely different reasons.

If you love practical make ups and all the incredibly hard work that goes into them, you will love Chronicles II. As helpful as volume 1 is to cosplayers, volume 2 takes that just a step further in showing all the details in dwarf, elf and hobbit prosthetics. While the concept designs for the dwarves in volume 1 was great, seeing the actual appliances and/or sculpts is even better. I love being able see to Thorin's pop Thrain in all of his Odinesque glory, and too, the mining dwarf who found the Arkenstone.

Richard Armitage is terrific in the role of Thorin; Pouring the early sculpting concepts of a long bearded Thorin while reading Richard's comments about what a transformation that would have been, makes me ache just a little bit. A couple of those early concepts seen in the excellent Chronicles 1 were so spot on, imo, they would not detract from how attractive Thorin could be. It makes me wistful, but I am glad to see one of my favorite characters being portrayed so wonderfully in every other way. The nice thing is, we have a record of what might have been in two different forms now. So I appreciate seeing more of those excellent concepts in this book.

The added bonus of reading the actors, the talented Make Up crew and Weta designers' comments about specific designs is terrific. You really do get a sense of how the actors prepared for their roles and what they brought to their characters. It's a treat a read comments other than what a grind wearing those appliances, hair, beards and fat suits were.

In additional to practical make ups, many the digital characters are touched upon as well, including some of Radagast's feathered and furry friends (yay!) There's also a fun Middle Earth Size comparison chart in the very back.

I am looking forward to Weta's Chronicles for the next two Hobbit films. These are the best making of books for fans into costumes, make up, props and all those wonderful tiny details that realy deserve a lot more exposure.

Like it's predecesor, this is an absolutely gorgeous book. One I will definitely reread many, many times. If you enjoyed the Hobbit An Unexpected Journey, you'll enjoy this book.

HASH(0x926a1c18) étoiles sur 5 ''Unbelievable artistry and spectacle on display" 12 avril 2013
Par C Kernodle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
In my humble opinion, as much as the first chronicles book was amazing, the second one is even more so :)!!! The sheer amount of detail and painstaking realism that WETA have put into the characters and overall world of middle-earth is really awe-inspiring. One thing that these weta books have in common is consistency. All of them have very high quality writing, organization, and crystal clear photography. I love the designs of the cover art too, just an all-around phenomenal addition for fans to own and enjoy.Most all principle characters are presented in this book, along with the creatures too, which are really interesting to look at. I love the digital double and character turnarounds. The textures and modeling are top notch. Any fan of the hobbit or lord of the rings films will LOVE this book.

HASH(0x926a1bc4) étoiles sur 5 Behind the scenes at making the creatures and characters 13 avril 2013
Par Parka - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The first Chronicles book looks at the art and design. This second volume looks at how these characters are then created, through make-up or digitally.

You get to see Bilbo, Gandalf, dwarves (again), Thorin, orcs, trolls, eagles, giants, goblins and their king, oversized rabbits, Radagast's hedgehog friend, Stone Giants and the Gollum. Oh, no dragon, not yet.

The book's filled with highly detailed pictures, film stills and behind-the-scenes photographs. There are pictures of the cast working with silicone hand and leg prosthetics, make-up process, sculptures of dwarves, 3D models and more. The book's back has a scale size chart that's helpful at showing all the characters relative to each other.

There are interviews with the actors and the many staff that worked on the set. The extensive writeup talks about the challenges of creating these characters and creatures, getting them to move, the accents and language, the digital effects and the 3D models. It's fun reading about the film production from the first person account.

You get a good idea the amount of effort put in to create a film like this. Even for the 3D models created, they did not just model the muscles but also all the bones within even though they are not going to be seen on screen.

It's a really informative book packed with content.

Highly recommended to fans of the film.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
