The artbook features plenty of concept art throughout the pages with relating movie scripts. A considerable amount of artwork was draw using pencil. I haven't seen as much pencil coverage on other books. There are lots of painted stuff too. All felt very raw and simulated pages that had just come off the artists' drawing board.
The drawings, storyboards, character designs were captioned by original Hellboy artist Mike Mignola, and other concept artists, providing plenty of insights into the designs.
3D computer graphics write up was missing from the book. Computer graphics fans looking to read about how the characters are modeled and the technology behind the movie, be prepared to be disappointed. This artbook is all about concept.
More monster art will be featured in the other artbook called Monsters of Hellboy II.
If you're interested in artbooks, there's a list of books reviewed, with some pictures, on my blog, with pictures and flipping-pages video.
