    Less focus on character than the artbooks for the first movies for each Avenger, but I suppose that's understandable since they aren't creating character designs from scratch anymore. But this one still had much more character art and development than the Thor: The Dark World book, and very interesting tidbits about how they made certain scenes or items. I am floored by what I learned was CG in this movie; some of it you can tell, but a lot of it looked real, like they were in a physical locatio Less focus on character than the artbooks for the first movies for each Avenger, but I suppose that's understandable since they aren't creating character designs from scratch anymore.

I am floored by what I learned was CG in this movie; some of it you can tell, but a lot of it looked real, like they were in a physical location or a completely decorated set or used real props, etc. I guess because it's not somewhere like Asgard, where you know it doesn't exist and has to be CG no matter how realistic it looks, there's the assumption that more of it has been physically created, even if it's been manipulated digitally. There was a very interesting mention about how the Marvel team keeps characters in mind when doing choreography--that they ensure the motions made and weapons used by the characters are in line with how they have been characterized so far in the MCU, rather than just going for the coolest fight scene. Little mentions of what details were paid attention to always amazes me, in this Marvel artbook and ones from other MCU movies. But I suppose that's why these movies are such good quality; they have huge teams and individual people paying attention to the very nuts and bolts of the script, to things that viewers don't even get to notice in the movie for the simple fact that it streamlines so well into the final product.

    The Winter Soldier is my favorite MCU movie and my second favorite Marvel character, so of course I was going to love this. It was especially cool to see the evolution of the concept art for the Falcon and Winter Soldier now that I'm watching their show. Seeing how they put together the Howling Commandos museum display was my other favorite part. I'm looking forward to reading all the books in this series.

    A nice combination of photos, concept art and storyboards about the creation of the movie. Some of the art in this was amazing! It was nice to see the evolution of the designs of the various characters. There were a lot of interesting tidbits and behind the scenes info.

    The first Captain America art of book surprised me in how well designed and interesting it was. It incorporated a lot of comic history into not only the concept art, but the final film design. This book continues that, but with less emphasis on the comic origins; that is, there's not as much "history" included. Just like "Marvel's Thor: The Dark World - The Art of the Movie", this one is laid out chronologically vis-á-vis the film. Cap's redesigned costume is given an overview, as is Black Widow' The first Captain America art of book surprised me in how well designed and interesting it was. It incorporated a lot of comic history into not only the concept art, but the final film design. This book continues that, but with less emphasis on the comic origins; that is, there's not as much "history" included. Just like "Marvel's Thor: The Dark World - The Art of the Movie", this one is laid out chronologically vis-á-vis the film. Cap's redesigned costume is given an overview, as is Black Widow's, but where the book really shines is with the Winter Soldier and Falcon. Bucky's section is especially interesting because he's the only modern character in the film. The Winter Soldier was created in the late 2000's, unlike Cap and Falcon who have been around for 50+ years. In the comics, he has a domino mask and the concept artists pay homage to that with the military ant-glare paint around his eyes under the goggles. The design and physical implementation of his metal arm was very cool. Falcon also gets a lot of pages devoted to his design, and deservedly so. The various concepts for his wings are incredibly interesting as well as how the SFX render them in the film. The other really strong point of the book is how physical locations, like the Triskellion and Smithsoneon, were conceptualized to fit real-world locations. The section on the museum has full page spreads of the murals drawn for the film, and has a beautiful fold-out rendering. The Triskellion section was far better than I would have expected in how much emphasis was put on making it realistic in its location along the Potomac River and how they reduced the helicarriers from 5 to 3 because 5 would not fit under the river! The destruction of the helicarriers, and how the battle damage from every main gun was fully mapped, has some brilliant concept art to accompany the explanation. My main criticism of the book, and why I deducted a star, is the over emphasis on storyboarding. This is where a sequence is mapped out via small black and white panels. This is useful and interesting - ONCE - to see how an action sequence is developed and how art is fundamental to that process. However, there are six different sequences included here comprising 30+ pages of the book. They got boring very fast. Just like the previous releases, the hardcover book has a wrap-around image on the cover instead of s dust jacket and a different wrap-around image on the slipcase. One change I noticed is that unlike the previous books, which were all 10" high without the slipcase, this book is 9.5 inches. The slipcase has a bit of padding at the top and bottom so that it is the same size as the other film slipcases. I'm honestly not sure why they did this, though I am glad the cases all line up nicely on the bookshelf. Overall, this is another fine installment of the Art of Marvel Films collection. Highly recommended.

    This is another excellent addition to the "Art of" series in Marvel's Cinematic Universe. There is a lot of terrific stuff here covering everything from characters to props and locations. My big criticism is that there is too much emphasis on storyboards. The many wonderful drawings of The Falcon have little version numbers on them, and the highest number I saw was 28, but there are actually only about a dozen drawings. Instead, that space is taken up by page after page of storyboards. I would m This is another excellent addition to the "Art of" series in Marvel's Cinematic Universe. There is a lot of terrific stuff here covering everything from characters to props and locations. My big criticism is that there is too much emphasis on storyboards. The many wonderful drawings of The Falcon have little version numbers on them, and the highest number I saw was 28, but there are actually only about a dozen drawings. Instead, that space is taken up by page after page of storyboards. I would much rather see actual preproduction art as well as some finished digital models rather than storyboards. While we do get to see quite a bit of the secondary characters like Batroc, oddly one of the most interesting characters for the movie is absent: Arnim Zola. There's quite a bit of art of that sequence, but nothing pertaining to him. In the comics, Zola is one of those silly creations, existing as a guy who has transplanted his brain into a robot body, while a television on the robot's chest shows his face. The way they did it in the movie was much more interesting, yet Zola was entirely missing from the book. It's as if they had the idea and went straight to drawing it. Other than the lapse of Zola and the over-abundance of storyboards, this is an excellent art book.

    3 ½ stars. A fine example of Marvel's "art of" series of books: great concept art, a little inside information on the movie and its creation, and a couple things that never made it to the big screen. 3 ½ stars.

    Pretty good art of type books. The art style for the different designs was also good. The movie as well.

    Another great Marvel art book. Concepts, story boards, production stills and more. Winter Soldier is one of my favorite Marvel movies, so this one is particularly enjoyable.

    3.75 stars. This focused on so much I didn't really care about in the film and not enough on what I did care about. It still had great art in it though. 3.75 stars.
