    WOW, you did the art on the BCI DVD boxes and discs? I LOVE your work then. That art amazes me every time I pop in a disc, your one talented guy! I would love a book of that art! I would gladly pay $40-$50 for one.

    Approximately how many images are we talking about? With Windows 7 it could be cool to use the images as a rotating background. Hard to price it out not knowing if we are talking 15, 50, 200 images.


    I'd be interested though.

    Well, I haven't counted how many images I created for the DVD.
    I know there are a lot.
    Just think all the single figures for the dics from all releases, all the cover, all the illustrations for the backs, a few layouts for each release and more.
    I'm sure we're talking a couple of hundreds

    For fun I calculated how many images I'd be using in the Ghostbusters section and those alone are 34.
    I immagine just MOTU and POP alone could be a hundred.

    I'd pay 35-50 for it.

    Would it be in a format that you could just download them all as an image file on your pc to use as wall papers?

    It would be rock if there's a password or certificate to download a digital album or image. I wouldn't care/extremely excited/and would be a good surprise if you rise the price on the book just for digital album Emiliano.

    I dunno, once digital files are out there, you can't really control much.
    And I think that would be more of a legal nightmare.
    A printed book about about my art is something much more small.
    If you guys wants some wallpaper, we can always create some here for the .org, for free.

    And speaking about the book, If I get to do it, I think I know how to make it really cool to look at. it would be a fest for the eyes, not just a bunch of B&W images (not that there is anything wrong with that kind of sketchbook.
    I was also thinking about a few feature.
    would you guys like a dissection of the MOTU mural spine, showing all the elements I used to create it?

    I would absolutely buy the art book. Preferably just of the MOTU stuff, but even with the other subjects I would get it, your work is great!

    My bad. I misread what you had originally posted.. After I read "sort of book/sketchbook" I went ahead and added "ON DVD packages".

    Regardless, I'd but it.

    I would be very interested in dissecting certain art-pieces. To see the progress on how they came to be.

    For sure indivual pieces would be great!

    I love this kind of stuff in art books. I love seeing the sketches and comps that lead to a final piece and other "behind the scenes" things.

    And if yes, how much would you spend on this (please, be realistic, even with the cheaper printing, it can't be 10 bucks).
    What else would you like to see inside?

    Thanks in advance for the feedback!
    I'm a huge fan of your art Emiliano. I'd probably only be curious at best to see the Transfomers art but I would love to see the other franchises listed. Considering I paid $90.00 on Ebay for Mattel's MOTU Art Book, I can see myself paying close to that(or more if it's hardcover & has hundreds of pages in it).

    I feel this way as well, but, to be honest, even if I'd never heard of this website, I'd be happy supporting Emiliano & James based solely on their passion & talent.

    I can't believe you said that. As soon as I started reading this thread, I was thinking to myself "too bad Emiliano never did any Gobots artwork".

    Later on I may do more, but never a MOTU exclusive one.
    Just put a Vol. 1 on it and if this DVD related book sells well enough, you can make a second book with additional artwork from other sources.

    This would be a most awesome book.

    With all the creator art and sketchbooks out there, it's high time we got an Emiliano Santalucia book.

    YOU would love the book sir, because I've no doubt it would feature your favorite spine art mural!

    Hell's yeah I'd buy such a book!!!! I'd buy two! I have no idea what's reasonable, but I spent $50 on the Art of MOTU book and while I thought that was a little overpriced, I'd be willing to spend at least that much here.

    From you, sir, I would be happy even with black and white on newsprint! A dissection of the mural would be outstanding! With you know not just the art in the book would be great, but the presentation would be an art of its own!

    I would definitely buy an art book for around $40-$50. However, I would like to have mostly finished artwork that is colored. I'm just not a fan of black and white sketches.

    I guess I should start off by asking if that awesome illustration of the heroic warriors on the 10 of 16 Art Card (included with the Season Two Volume 1 set) you did - would it be included in this artbook?

    As for that piece of art, I scanned it in so I could use it as my computer's wallpaper (and for my avatar as well). However, I have only used it for personal reasons and have not distributed it at all. I hope that doesn't bother you (I assume it is legal). If anything should be offered as a wallpaper on the .org, it should be that piece of art.

    Speaking of that art card, have you done one for the evil warriors to compliment it? Now that would be an awesome wallpaper for the .org. Heck, I'd be willing to donate/pay for one for the .org.
