We love the work of Italian artist, Alessandro Taini aka Talexi and it’s great to see this new artbook out from publisher Design Studio Press. Talexi – The Concept Art of Alessandro Taini is a 128 page soft cover artbook featuring glorious reproductions of his amazing concept artworks, paintings, illustrations and sketches. All of his major projects for video game developer Ninja Theory are presented here, including Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Dmc: Devil May Cry, and Hellblade. Alessandro was responsible for designing some of the most beloved and iconic video game characters and this book shows some of the detailed development of these character designs. Alongside the character creation, he also worked on the environments, locations, props and weapons for many of these projects. This is the first book to feature the impressive concept artworks of Alessandro Taini and with over 250 sketches and paintings this is an essential purchase for any fan of video game art, character design and the art of Talexi.
