UDON Entertainment has published a new artbook called Atelier: Artworks of Arland – Rorona & Totori & Meruru. This art book contains a collection of art from the hit Atelier series, covering the “Arland” trilogy and has a lot to offer to anyone who purchases it.
The book should appeal to a wide variety of people with its moe art style that was done by internationally renowned character designer, Mel Kishida. Anyone who is a fan of the Arland trilogy from the Atelier series should check this out! Fans of the moe art style and those who enjoy the works of Mel Kishida, may want to give this a gander as well.
UDON has used a neon pink ink that will make the costumes, skin tones and special effects appear to be almost glowing. Of course, they really don’t glow but UDON boasts that you must see the art in person to experience this the way it was meant to be, saying “This extra ink allows us to show a new kind of detail to the artwork, with soft, feathery shadows and gradients that can’t be experienced on the computer screen.”
The Atelier series has become a favorite of many Japanese RPG enthusiasts with its unique mix of alchemy and action set in a vibrant and magical fantasy world. Atelier: Artworks of Arland collects the wonderful artwork behind the Arland trilogy – Atelier Rorona, Atelier Totori, and Atelier Meruru. Included are the spectacular character designs of Mel Kishida, plus promotional art, pin-ups, rough sketches, character profiles, and more.
