(Changing my reviews based on publisher feedback)
The artwork in these collections is really very nice. Six full page images for the price, while not a must-buy, is certainly reasonable... Keeping in mind that "full page", in this instance, is expressed as a single subject with a background filling the rest of the page, not a truly, wholly detailed "full page" piece of art.
The publisher's clarification that the artist credits and copyright information can be moved and resized (resized is the kicker, since the regulation on the image's aspect ratio seems to belie this fact) makes a huge difference in my overall impression of the product. Also, if the Cerebrus logo can be excluded, that's another bonus. I originally figured, in the "spirit" of the license, that the logo was included as part of the credits and copyright portion of the image.<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: Most images are very good. All are useable. Another "way cheaper than contracting the artwork by piece" scenario.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: The art would be most useful as covert art. Given the lack of details surrounding the central subject of each image, it almost seems like it was designed as cover art from the beginning. Thus I did not originally understand (my fault) that the art could not be used in product covers.
Given the "interior art only" clause, the "full page" nature of these images is sort of a "three quarters truth". As stated previously, "full page" implies that all of the art on the page contributes to the overall effect of the image. In the case of these, it's a single subject with background as page filler... So, while it's not a huge deal, you shouldn't think these are truly "full page" images by technical definition.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br><BR>[THIS REVIEW WAS EDITED]<BR>
