It would be great if you can post a link back to this contest on your blog. With more readers, I hope I can give out better prizes in the future!
Here are my top 3, to start the ball rolling, and also to serve as an example.
1. Art of Kung Fu Panda
This book is about character design. There are over hundreds of concept sketches. Also, the environment paintings are just breathtaking.
2. Street Fighter Tribute
Amazing variety of style. Great characters. What else can you ask for?
3. The Sumi: Vagabond Illustration Collection
Inoue Takehiko compiles some amazing manga art from his Vagabond comic series. It's a showcase of manga prowess.
Again, thanks for reading!
