Giveaway: The Art of Epic


by Caleb Paullus (@theurbanraptor)

The Nerd Machine is happy giveaway a brand new copy of The Art of Epic and a pair of  EX3D Glasses!

What is Epic? 20th Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios, the creators of Ice Age and Rio, have come together to tell the story of an ongoing battle deep in the forest between the forces of good and the forces of evil, Epic. When a teenage girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she must band together with a rag-tag team of fun and whimsical characters in order to save their world — and ours.

The Art of Epic shines a light on the previously hidden world of Epic, with over 300 pieces of concept art, character sketches, storyboards and digital paintings, along with interviews with the key animation talent.

The book is really a great piece for any collection and a very fascinating read. You have the wonderful opportunity to see a lot of the scenery and characters development from start to finish. I recommend this to any movie / animated film buff!

How do you win? Simply tell us who your favorite character design is from the film in the comments or on twitter with the hashtag #epicTNMgiveaway. We will select one winner on 5/9/13

Epic is out in theaters May 24th.

    I’m so excited for this movie!
    The Leaf men are definitely my favorites, especially in their armor getup… I mean who doesn’t like knights. Specifically, Ronin looks damn cool in that outfit of his, plus he looks like the tough guy type you can’t not love, so he’s currently my favorite.

    Mandrake looks like a badass character, not to mention who voices him. All the characters compliment the world of EPIC and I look forward to seeing it for my birthday!

    My favorite character design is Nim Galuu.

    I like Nod the most, his wit and charm seem intriguing to me. I can’t wait for this movie!

    Nod! I mean, really, you had to ask? #epicTNMgiveaway

    By the way, this kind of feels like a reverse Fern Gully.

    I like the leaf men! Kind of reminds me of Avatar!

    I am going to have to say Mub & Grub.

    I would love ride on a hummingbird! I like Nod the most. I had the same thought about Fern Gully.

    I like the Mub & Grub
