The artbook is simply amazing. The uniqueness of each character is not something you see often when there are so many characters.

One of the things of what makes Dungeon Meshi so great is the setting itself. It feels like a place people and monsters actually live in so it feels less like a standard RPG and more like a living environment. A great example of constructing a fictional world. Start at 10:14

What I love abut it is that it is basically is a standard RPG setting. Barring a handful of unique interpretations of familiar monsters, like the hermit crab mimics and the mollusc armor, it doesn't bring all that much new to the table, especially if you have tabletop RPG settings in mind as well. But for all its adherence to the standard RPG adventure fantasy formula, it really has created something new by putting all of those little details in, heavily shandifying the setting. If you think about it, the vast majority of the monsters are actually nothing new: some like the kelpies and mandrakes are ripped straight from various folklores, others from various monster manuals, and the reason why they feel so fresh is simply because of all the extra detail that's added on top of the familiar form. If your read Ryoko Kui's other works, you'll see that she is really good at this. Worldbuilding is definitely something she's good at.

I loved the artbook! Particularly the second to last page with all the individual character portraits of those seen and not yet seen in the story. Remind me a lot of the old Shining Force art way back when!

Ryoko-sensei is such a great fantasy artist! Damn!

i miss that farm(?) golem, it was a very cute idea lol

Those poor kids! D:

I really learned a lot from that artbook. I want to draw again. Lately I barely have time. Adulting is hard.

Did anybody go to chapter Nineteen to compare it to that one page in the artbook? (referencing "Daydream Hour 2" page eighteen)

Kuso Miso Technique. Google it. :v

By virtue of the quality of Dungeon Meshi, I'm already sold on whatever her next series was, but you just sold me on her next art book too.  

 

Yen Press*, THAT is an artist.  Can you get your hands on this too, color artbook or pack-in or something? Even if it doesn't have Dungeon Meshi stuff in it, her commentary is really insightful.

This mangaka really serves well... Really gives attention to details. Not simply copy pasting. While this scetch is more of a bragging chapter, buy it is bragging well earned I think. The skill really legit.

cleric laius is actually pretty convincing

Thanks for the translated artbook!

I chuckled a bit because it reminded me of Carrot (a human) raised by dwarfs. A 6'6" (2m) tall teen who believes he is a dwarf is hilarious.

 

Carrot IS a dwarf. He has done all the things that make him a dwarf, as he explains in the books. Yes he does bump his head on cave roofs a bit more than most dwarves do and yes he sort of might be the rightful King of Ankh-Morpork but he's a dwarf.

Laius looks like a Jedi in those robes

So cute. I wish I knew how to do a walk animation.

It hit me right in the feels seeing the twin's backstory with the gnomes.

So fucking jelly of those who can draw

It hit me right in the feels seeing the twin's backstory with the gnomes.

This artbook it's a redefinition of what a mangaka can call a ''sketch'' or a random doodle, or practice.

All are God tier, the girls, the races, every figure has a soul, and there are even instructions to make golem merchandising, THAT is passion.

That food drawings are SO LIVELY that they smell good even if there  are just pixels here!
