About the book:
This volume, much like the previous volumes is not your standard coffee table book nor is it our usual how-to-book.New to this volume will be 5 artist video tutorials. Five artists will specifically detail an aspect of their gallery image from start to finish, offering further technique driven insight and expertise offering 2 hours of additional inspiration. With a click of a mouse, artists will be able to apply the leading techniques to their own work with access to additional video tutorials, source files, textures and digital brushes at the companion website.
There will be a foreword by a leading industry figure (TBD) and an introduction from the editors at 3dTotal, explaining the concept and layout of the 4th Volume. Like the previous volumes, Digital Art Masters Volume 4 will be divided into 5 sections (Sci-Fi, Scene, Fantasy, Character and Cartoon) with the selected artists being featured within these sections. Each artist will have a brief biography, a showcase of their masterpiece image and description about the creation of the image focusing on aspects which were most challenging or interesting. Broadly each artist will explain the creation of the masterpiece image from concept to post production. Each artist section will also feature 2 to 3 portfolio examples.
