Over the past fifteen years, 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios have revolutionized computer animation with some of the most beloved movies of all time, from their initial success with Ice Age in 2002 to hits like Robots, Rio, Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!, Epic, and the four Ice Age sequels. For the first time, this deluxe coffee-table book tells the remarkable tale of Blue Sky's success, from its origins as a live-action visual effects company to its partnership with 20th Century Fox and reinvention as a driving force in the world of computer-generated animation. With exclusive access to Blue Sky's archives and the exceptional artists who have made characters like Ice Age's Scrat and Rio's Blu and Jewel household names, this book takes an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at one of animation's greatest success stories. Featuring never-before-seen concept art, early sketches, stunning stills, and other unique visuals, The Art of Blue Sky Studios delivers the complete illustrated history of this outstanding creative force in computer-generated animation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..".the most impressive movie-related art book I've ever seen."--"Comic Book Resources"
"This book encompasses everything up to and including "Rio 2." You and your kids will love flipping through and looking at all the fantastic images and learning more about this company that has been creating computer graphics since before the general public knew that was a thing."
--"GeekDad"
"It's hard to believe it's been just over a decade since Fox helped launch Blue Sky into the world of theatrical feature animation with the global hit franchise starter "Ice Age" back in 2002 -- the fifth installment of which is planned for 2016. Since then, the studio has continually upped the CG animation bar with film adaptations and lushly designed original stories, from "Robots" to "Rio." For the first time, you can leaf through a hefty coffee-table hardcover and live the studio's journey from live-action visual effects company to a driving force in CG animation. Thanks to exclusive access to Blue Sky's archives (and the talented artists who have built it), this edition boasts never-before-seen concept art, early sketches, stunning film stills and more eye candy to tide you over until their next ambitious project: the first-ever CG "Peanuts" movie coming next year."

..".is the most impressive movie-related art book I've ever seen... the full color paintings [are] done mostly to visualize the environments for the films and the characters' place in them, and they're striking. I can't compliment them enough...Best of all, the book doesn't try to cram them all into a smaller format. They're allowed to breathe. Some stretch across two page spreads. You can really see these paintings, and that's what an art book should do."

"Filled with working conceptual art...character development sketches and models...studies on the shape language. And light. And so many images of how the colors of light play in movement, setting of mood, and layout of drama....I've been motivated to think of light and color in a new way, and I'm confident that my hands will reach for [these] wonderful pages again for further inspiration."
